To celebrate their film becoming Oscar shortlisted, Pixar releases “Bao” on YouTube for one week only!
It’s become a regular tradition that for every full-length Pixar film released into theatres, it is always preceded by a short story.
With the release of the long-awaited The Incredibles sequel earlier this year, it came with a short story entitled Bao.
Usually, the only way to see these short films is by purchasing the film it was shown with on a form of home media or waiting several years and purchasing one of the volumes of Pixar shorts.
This year, however, Pixar and Disney have done something a little different. On Monday (17th Dec), The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released its 2019 shortlist. Bao made it onto the list and to celebrate, Disney and Pixar have released the film onto YouTube for one week only.
Directed by Domee Shi, Bao tells the touching tale of a Chinese woman who gets another chance at becoming a mother when one her dumplings spring to life.
