The director of the short "Bao", Domee Shi, is working on an original feature at Pixar.

Quote:
Shi doesn’t look like other Pixar directors — just 28 years old, she’s not white, nor male — but her short “Bao” fits beautifully into the studio’s oeuvre, and the company’s so-called Brain Trust so loved one of her other original ideas that they’ve invited her to develop it into a feature.

I wonder if she'll be allowed to flourish or will she be stomped by The Formula.

Wow, hard to imagine having a director two years younger than I am. I'm not a fan of the character design of the bao character, but I know that doesn't say anything about her directing ability.

Good for her! I am rooting for her success, SO MUCH.

Hearing what happened to Brave's original director and Pete Sohn being shoved into The Good Dinosaur....PLEASE let this be successful in terms of her telling what SHE wants + a box office hit.

As I am of asian descent and an animator, I am really rooting for her success.

Now the question is: what ethnicity will her characters be? Hmm. When I first heard of her original short, I thought, "Oh pssh...a SHORT? I'd love to see them give her the director's seat." But here we all are, months later!

She certainly is young blood!

Here's hoping she gets to tell the story she wants to in the way she wants to tell it :float:
