I’d like to introduce you to Piper, isn’t she adorable?
She stars in the new short from Pixar Animation Studios titled “Piper”. This is the story is of a hungry sandpiper hatchling who ventures from her nest for the first time to dig for food by the shoreline.
The only problem is, the food is buried beneath the sand where scary waves roll up onto the shore.
Director Alan Barillaro has been with Pixar Studios since 1997 and has worked on movies such as “A Bugs Life,” “Monsters, Inc.,” “Finding Nemo,” and “Brave.” Soon after he finished his work on “Brave” he took on a new project with Pixar’s software development team to create a new animation tool. In order to prove how amazing this new tool was he created a short animation test about a sandpiper bird on the beach.
This test grew into the short “Piper”

“Piper” will debut in theaters worldwide with “Finding Dory” on June 17, 2016.
