Incredibles 2 is already well on its way to becoming one of the most successful animated films of all time, but its beautiful support act, Bao, deserves a lot of love too.

Pixar have a deep history of quality short films preceding their major releases, and they may have reached peak Up-like emotional wallop with this tale of a Chinese mum who gets a second chance at motherhood when one of her lovingly-crafted dumplings comes to life.

OK, we’ll admit it, we were tearing up when we saw it.
