Audiences who plan on checking out The Angry Birds Movie 2 in theaters this weekend will also get to watch “Hair Love,” the animated short film by filmmaker Matthew Cherry and executive-produced by Peter Ramsey (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) and Frank Abney (Toy Story 4). Born of the famously successful 2017 Kickstarter, “Hair Love” is a 5-minute short about a Black father and daughter—Stephen and Zuri—who endure a bit of a journey to get Zuri’s hair styled for a big event. Cherry released a clip via his Twitter account on Wednesday and we think it’s fair to warn you: It’s pretty dang precious.
