BAO

Domee Shi and Becky Neiman-Cobb

A lonely Chinese mother suffering from empty nest syndrome is thrilled to become a parent again when one of her homemade dumplings comes to life. As Dumpling grows, however, the inevitable conflicts between parent and child arise and Mom must acknowledge that no one stays little forever.

Congrats to all the Pixar Team.

Bao is Domee Shi's directorial debut. When Domee Shi was a little girl growing up in Toronto, her mother treated her like a precious dumpling, constantly making sure she was safe and didn’t wander away. That maternal care inspired the story behind Pixar’s latest short film, which was rendered in RenderMan as a fully physically based path traced project.

Congrats to all the teams behind these projects
