Pixar has just offered a first look at Bao, the appetizer short film that will air ahead of Incredibles 2.
The animation depicts a Pinocchio-like story, where an “empty-nesting Chinese mom” makes a pork dumpling that later comes to life.
Director Domee Shi, who is the first woman to spearhead a Pixar short, previously told Entertainment Weekly that the film would be a “magical, modern-day fairy tale, kind of like a Chinese Gingerbread Man story.”
The episode’s creators also consulted Shi’s mother to ensure the dumpling-folding process looked as accurate and lifelike as possible.
Bao and Incredibles 2 will hit screens starting 15 June. Check out the the teaser and poster for the preluding film below.
