Disney/ Pixar has brought back the animated short. So far, each short has pushed the boundaries of storytelling and technology in new and exciting ways. Side note: If you don’t own a copy of their shorts collection (available to buy here), you best rectify that immediately. We’re getting a sneak peek at their newest animated short SANJAY’S SUPER TEAM, a short that debuts in front of THE GOOD DINOSAUR. Take a look.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
See more of this short on November 25 when you buy your ticket to THE GOOD DINOSAUR.
