You Can Now Watch ‘Bao,’ The Pixar Short That Played In Theaters Before ‘Incredibles 2,’ Online For Free


Bao is, in a word, completely adorable and slightly heartbreaking. It’s an extremely Pixar short set in Toronto and featuring a woman who makes a bao that, well, comes to life. But it’s so much more than that.
Disney dropped the whole thing as part of a tweet promoting another collection of the short films, but if you don’t feel like buying them all this is definitely one of their best works. And at eight minutes, it’s a worthy investment if your time if you haven’t seen it. Domee Shi, who directed Bao, is working on her first feature-length picture and the Pixar short is likely in Oscar contention, so now’s a good time to get familiar with her work.
