A short that is both irrepressibly adorable and true to how these creatures move in real life, Piper follows a little bird as he/she (does that matter?) tries to get a little piece of clam that its mommy leaves for it on a beach. But the tide might come and sweep the bird away or back into looking like a messed-up little thing. It's an inspiring story that shows kids that if there's a little perseverance through the harsh waters that you can come out with something you didn't expect to get. Like many of Pixar's shorts it has a lot more depth than can be expected in a short running time, and the unique aspect to this is how the birds and ocean moves so closely as to how in life that it's only incredible that it wasn't done via digital-rendering on actual birds and clams and crabs and so on. And on top of everything else it's fitting to pair this with Finding Dory, which is all about taking on the odds against you to do what isn't expected - or, to put it another way, going past the limits of what is possible naturally.

I don&#39;t like sequels and rarely will I go see one in the theater. In fact, I rarely watch them period. To me, the films are a bit lazy and offer little, if anything, in the way of originality. Because of this, I was not thrilled when my daughter asked me to take her to see the film &quot;Finding Dory&quot;. Fortunately, &quot;Piper&quot; was highly original and very enjoyable...and was clearly the high point of my evening.<br/><br/>The film is told with no words and is the story of a very timid baby sandpiper. Unlike the adult birds, it is afraid of the water...particularly when it&#39;s hit by a big wave. So how will this adorable little bird overcome its shyness?<br/><br/>The best thing about this film is the character design. The baby piper is adorable and is a great combination of a more realistic sort of CGI with a slightly cartoony character. Overall, the film was gorgeous and enjoyable...and rather sweet.<br/><br/>UPDATE: This film was nominated for the Best Animated Short Oscar. Considering the quality of &quot;Piper&quot; and the sad lot up against it this year, I think it&#39;s a shoe-in to take home the trophy.

I am 55 yrs old and loved Finding Nemo and could not wait to see Finding Dory. I went today with a friend and after watching Piper I turned to my friend and told her even if Finding Dory was not great, Piper was worth the price of admission LOVED IT. (Finding Dory was good also but could not get Piper out of my head. Came home and looked it up on my computer and was excited to see a little teaser (as they called it) and teaser is correct cause it took you right up to the start of the adventure. Dang it I wanted to see it again. Whoever and however they did this animation needs to do some more of this, shoot I could have watched a how movie on Piper. Okay I know it is a short movie but could you throw in another teaser trailer. :-)
