First Look at Pixar's New Short Film 'Piper'

Disney has debuted a clip from "Piper," the animated short that premieres Friday with "Finding Dory."

The directorial debut of animator Alan Barillaro ("WALL-E," "Brave"), the six-minute short tells the story of a sandpiper hatchling who must overcome her fear of the water after her mother sends her looking for clams on the beach.

Barillaro recently explained that the inspiration for the story came from watching birds hunt for food at the beach, where he observed that they “always looked like they were tearing around in fear, like they were scared of the water.”
