Funko Bao Figure

Fans are undoubtedly excited about Pixar’s long-awaited sequel Incredibles 2. It’s been 14 years since the original film hits theaters, and box office projections have the superhero family raking in somewhere around $110 million. With another month and a half of marketing to go, there’s a good chance that number could rise. That means a lot of people will be seeing another one of Pixar’s delightful projects.

The short this time is titled Bao, and we’ve already gotten a look at the movie about an empty-nesting Chinese mom who gets another chance at motherhood when one of her dumplings springs to life.

There’s something magical about watching a Pixar short. You go into one without any clue what to expect except for something truly spectacular — whether it be a feat of technological prowess, a wacky creative experiment, or a peek into another culture.

It sounds like the new Pixar short is a combination of all three. Bao, the Pixar short set to screen in front of Incredibles 2 this summer, will follow a lonely empty-nester mother who is delighted when a baby dumpling comes to life.
