‘Piper’, a Super Cute Disney-Pixar Short Movie for the Summer

Meet Piper

We loved the Disney-Pixar short movie – Piper – about a baby sandpiper.

Really, really cute beach movie.

piperIt won the 2017 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 89th Academy Awards, becoming the first Pixar animated short to win the award since For the Birds in 2002.

Just adorable!

The Plot:

The Pixar short centers on a newborn sandpiper, Piper, who is brought by her mother to the shoreline so she can learn to feed on bivalves. However, she is caught off guard by an incoming wave and engulfed in it.

Traumatized, Piper refuses to go to the shore again, however, her hunger leaves her no choice. On her second attempt, she notices a tiny hermit crab who also comes to the shore to feed. As a new wave approaches, she observes that the crab buries himself down in the sand. Out of options, Piper resorts to imitating the crab. The wave submerges Piper, but she stays safely at the bottom. Opening her eyes, she witnesses with wonder all the bivalves creeping out of the sand to take a quick breath before the wave ebbs.

The short ends with Piper no longer afraid of the waves, jumping playfully in the water and tucking herself in the sand every time a wave comes in.

So cute!!

Walking along North Smyrna Beach, FL. Beautiful!  Lots of shorebirds and seagulls.

We’ve written two books about our time working and playing at Disney World.

Both are available on Amazon.com: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
