Piper Teaser: Pixar’s New Short Is Overwhelmingly Cute


Animation fans (and, fine, small children) already excited for this weekend’s Finding Dory also have a new short film from Pixar to eagerly anticipate. In keeping with the studio’s long-standing tradition, Piper will air before the feature-length movie. The six-minute work of animation stars an incredibly lifelike sandpiper chick and is definitely NSFW — that is, if your work requires you not to verbally squeal "That is so cute!” at your desk while your colleagues do their actual jobs. It is also not safe to watch if you are inclined to adopt every tiny creature you find adorable, as sandpipers are probably best off living outdoors and, you know, near sand.
