Disney and Pixar have released some new details, still shots and a clip for the next CG animated short for Pixar, Sanjay’s Super Team. You can check out the new clips and images below (courtesy of Walt Disney Studios). This will be the new short film debuting with Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur next month. This looks it will be a fun mix, as a young Indian American boy creates a mash-up world of comic book superheroes with that of more traditional Hindi culture.
Sanjay’s Super Team is directed by Sanjay Patel and produced by Nicole Paradis Grindle. In the short, a young, first-generation Indian-American boy who loves western pop culture comes into conflict with his more traditional father. Sanjay loves cartoon and comics, but his father tries to draw him more into Hindu traditions. The young boy then embarks on an awe-inspiring adventure and journey that he never imagined. The father and son then return with a new perspective that they both can embrace.
So far the film looks it will live up to the high quality we generally come to expect from Pixar. The film looks like it will be a fun father and son story. Based on the title of the film, it’s obviously an autobiographical tale for the director Sanjay Patel. The short film will be shown before Disney and Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur. You can check out both in theaters on November 25.
