The first clip from Disney-Pixar’s next short film, “Sanjay’s Super Team” (which will play in front of “The Good Dinosaur”) has been released. The short has its UK Premiere this weekend at the BFI London Film Festival.
In “Sanjay’s Super Team,” the new short film from Pixar Animation Studios, accomplished artist Sanjay Patel uses his own experience to tell the story of a young, first-generation Indian-American boy whose love for western pop culture comes into conflict with his father’s traditions. Sanjay is absorbed in the world of cartoons and comics, while his father tries to draw him into the traditions of his Hindu practice. Tedium and reluctance quickly turn into an awe-inspiring adventure as the boy embarks on a journey he never imagined, returning with a new perspective that they can both embrace.
Pixar’s Sanjay Patel and Nicole Grindle discuss the story behind Disney Pixar’s newest short, ‘Sanjay’s Super Team,’ in an interview with WSJ’s Christopher J. Farley.
Directed by Sanjay Patel and produced by Nicole Paradis Grindle, “Sanjay’s Super Team” opens in cinemas on November 27, 2015, in front of Disney-Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur.”
