That was incredibly disturbing short to have before the Incredibles 2. My kids sat slack jawed in horror.

Disney had done it with Hawaiians, Irish, Native-Americans, and Mexicans, and now it's time to go back to the Chinese long after Mulan, in 3D. It's a very touching movie that would make you realize it's hard to be parent raising their kids, especially for mothers, and it's even harder for them to give them to someone else when they decide to start a family. One of the best Disney-Pixar Short movies imho, and certainly, better than 2 Frozen short movies, with less those annoying and pointless dancing and singing.
SPOILER: I've read many comments that claim your opinion of this short depends on one's cultural background (if you aren't Asian, they say, you won't get it). Well, I got it. So did my wife and 15-yr old daughter. It was SUPPOSED to be a "touching" tale of how hard it is when our children grow up and move on without us. What is ACTUALLY was is a horrifying display of near-cannibalism and child murder. My wife and I literally said "WTF" to each other at the pivotal moment; my daughter cried out "OMG, I can't believe that just happened," and, I kid you not, two different children started to cry (and why wouldn't they? It was horrific.)
People were already getting anxious and frustrated by its slow pacing, zero dialog and uncomfortable tone. But once that event happened, the whole audience was gasping and muttering (and not in a good way, if there is such a thing). It was so disturbing that I couldn't even really enjoy the first 20 minutes of the movie I paid to see, and it is the only thing I have heard anyone talking about in reference to The Incredibles 2 (other than how awesome Jack-Jack is).
Perhaps it is simply a cultural misunderstanding. But if so, the gap is wide, and this should only be shown before the movie is Asian markets.
