This was extremely awkward and with having no information until the end where it explains what the metaphor was, it still didn't leave you understanding 'what literally even'

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