21. Bao

Bao is the cutest little short film ever! If you’ve seen it, it was probably before another Disney movie at the theaters. Otherwise, it might be new to you. Luckily, Disney is putting it on their streaming service so a whole bunch of people have the chance to watch this delightful movie.

It takes place in Toronto with a Chinese woman who decides to make steamed buns. But these aren’t any ordinary steamed buns; these come alive! She raises it as a child, feeds it, and takes care of it.

From there, we see the little bun want to play sports with other kids, grow into a teenager, and then a young adult. While the bun wanted his mother around at the beginning, he begins to want his own independence. His mother would rather he stay with her.

The steamed bun then introduces his fiancée to his mother and announces he’s moving out of her house. She fights him on it and even tries to stop him from leaving, but he persists. Angry, the mother eats the steamed bun and then cries over her actions.

She then lays in bed and her real human son enters the room and apologizes, showing that the whole steamed bun sequence was mimicking real life and her worries about her son leaving her.

If you don’t cry at least a little bit during this, do you even have feelings?? This is one of the first things I’m going to check out when Disney Plus launches this November.
