Warning: This article contains spoilers for Pixar’s short film Bao, which screens before Incredibles 2 in cinemas and – take a deep breath – is not about white people. The eight-minute short tells the story of a perfectly formed, home-cooked dumpling that comes to life and becomes a surrogate child for its cook, a Chinese woman. We all know Pixar. Obviously there’s more to Bao than a worthy celebration of this delicious staple of Chinese culture.
