Bao is a Pixar short film directed by Domee Shi. It was released on June 15, 2018 with the release of Incredibles 2.
Bao takes place in Toronto, Canada(my home city, yeah boi!). It is about a Chinese women who magically makes one of her dumplings come to real life. Shocked but seeing how cute he is, she takes matters into her own hands and raises up this soft, squishy dumpling child.
Bao represents food and family, Domee wanted to bring the two together because it represented the family values she grew up with. Bao represents a mother who deeply loves her child and would do anything to keep them close but as the child grows older, they want to be free and independent from their care.
A great Pixar short film with a beautiful story. I hope you get a chance to watch it.
