It’s a bird! It’s Pixar! It’s Piper!

In Pixar Animation Studios' new short, "Piper," a hungry sandpiper hatchling discovers that finding food without mom’s help isn’t so easy.
Piper is directed by Alan Barillaro (supervising animator "WALL•E," "Brave")
and the short will debut in front of Finding Dory, in UK cinemas on July 29, 2016.
As Disney says, “Look ashore and adore!”

“This is a story about conquering and overcoming your personal fears — in this case, the water,” director Alan Barillaro said in an exclusive interview with USA Today last week. “This is a tale of how to grow up in a world that seems so large and intimidating with the courage to get past those fears.”

The little sandpiper learns how to forage for food in the short clip and (we’re told by editors who have seen the film) Piper even makes a friend who shows her the ways of the ocean.

“There’s also the parent aspect, personal to me,” Barillaro told USA Today of the film. “Letting your kids grow up, make mistakes and not hovering over them. The mother piper is the parent I wish I was — being there for your kids, but giving them space to grow.”
