This was a Pixar short shown before the studio's feature of Incredibles 2 in theatres. It seems to involve a Chinese adult dealing with "empty nest" syndrome as she makes a dumpling that resembles her offspring who grew apart from her as it grew up. Directed by Domee Shi, this was quite amusing and touching. So that's a recommendation of Bao.

Bao was another intriguing Pixar shortReviewed bytavmVote: 9/10
Bao is a very cute short animation. I honestly didn't realize the protagonist was a woman until I looked at a discussion on Reddit but that shouldn't stop your attachment to the characters of the story. It was a nice opener for Incredibles 2 and the ending was surprising. Definitely worth a few minutes of your time and it will pull on your heartstrings. Yes you may cry and laugh and Domee Shi did a great job making a fun short.
I commend this Pixar short that came before Incredibles 2 for being different and more ambitious than previous shorts. However, it never quite gelled with me.
Bao does have the most heartfelt ending of all Pixar shorts and some distinctive character designs, I'll give it that. But, the overall gimmick was too weird for me. (I don't want to spoil it if you haven't seen this yet. This is is one of those situations where less info. is definitely more.) It doesn't help that the ending takes a moment to figure out. And that's for adults. Children will probably be confused. There is one moment that I found disturbing and may frighten some kids. Although a lot of people in the theater laughed at that, so it probably depends on who's watching.
