  • Not only is Piper an oceanic visual delight, but it also tells a sweet, wonderful story that will warm your heart.

  • Piper is effective and worth seeing because of the cinematography, and on the whole it makes a decent case for the expressive potential of photorealistic animation.

  • Pixar has not released such a beguiling, immediately engaging little miniature in the sixteen years since For the Birds.

Audience Reviews for Piper


This Oscar nominated animated short was very good too, but being produced by Pixar I think it was too easy for Oscar voters to pick it as the winner. A heartwarming tale of mother and child, in which the mother seagull must coach the youngster to overcome a traumatic experience in order to support itself (ie. eat) to survive. Beautifully rendered nature on this little beach.
