With Incredibles 2 set to hit theaters this June, Pixar has dropped a sneak peek of the forthcoming film's opener – a new animated short titled Bao.

Directed by Domee Shi (Pixar’s first female short director), the new eight-minute film is set in Canada and focuses on the Chinese immigrant community within the North American state.

The culinary tale follows a Chinese-Canadian woman who suffers from depression and "empty nest" syndrome. The woman is given a second shot at motherhood when one of her handmade dumplings comes alive.

While details on the film are scarce, Bao will first be screened as part of the NYC film festival’s short animated showcases in New York on April 21, 24, 27, and 28, before appearing at showings of Incredibles 2 when it hits theaters June 15.

For those that are excited about Bao and the release of the Incredibles sequel, revisit the trailer for Incredibles 2 below.
