In need of some Christmas feels? You can watch Pixar’s ‘Bao’ online in full for free here

Fall in love with a dumpling.

Disney Pixar have released the acclaimed short film Bao to watch online in full.

The animated short follows a Chinese-Canadian mother who struggles with empty-nest syndrome (a feeling of grief and loneliness parents may feel when their children leave home for the first time), but earns a second chance at parenthood when one of her dumplings comes alive.

Some slammed the film for being ‘too confusing’ and ‘culturally insensitive’, while others hailed it as ‘beautiful’ and ‘heartwarming‘.

Meanwhile, while Disney Pixar continue to tease the anticipated 2019 release of Toy Story 4, they also recently announced that their next original story will be called Onward and have announced four cast members who will appear in the film.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt will appear alongside Veep’s Julia Louise-Dreyfus and Spider-Man’s Tom Holland.

Octavia Spencer, who appeared in Oscar winning film The Shape of Water, will also feature in the film, which is set for release in March 2020.

In a press release, Disney described the plot of the film: “Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney-Pixar’s Onward introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.”
