The first clip for the upcoming Disney-Pixar animated short Sanjay’s Super Team has landed ahead of its theatrical debut November 25, when it will begin running in front of CG feature The Good Dinosaur. The short marks the directorial debut of Pixar artist Sanjay Patel and is produced by Nicole Paradis Grindle.
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.
