New Short Film With Finding Dory: Piper

This could be Disney Pixar’s cutest character creation yet. Meet Piper, the star of the animated short releasing theatrically with Finding Dory on June 17th. This new character is a bright-eyed, little beach-dwelling bird named Piper. The short is about six minutes and was an inspiration from director Alan Barillaro. Alan Barillaro would run alongside the shore and notice birds in the ocean and on the beach. He wanted to portray a character that wants to venture out but might be too fearful of the adventures that lie ahead. The story is about a bird encountering a small hermit crab who teaches her the new way of the waves. It’s about a story of growing up and a child learning from a parent. The story took about 3 years to develop and with the same theme of talking animals on adventures such as with Finding Dory it was a perfect time to put the short on the big screen.
