First clip released from Pixas’s new short, Sanjay’s Super Team
Following the new concept art that was released earlier this week, Disney•Pixar has released a first-look clip from their upcoming short, Sanjay’s Super Team. Check it out in the player below! Sanjay’s Super Team arrives alongside The Good Dinosaur in theaters on November 25.
In the same way that The Good Dinosaur hails from first-time feature director Pete Sohn (who previously directed the short Partly Cloudy), Sanjay’s Super Team arrives from a new wave of Pixar artists. Sanjay Patel, who has spent more than 20 years working in animation, began at Pixar on A Bug’s Life. In Sanjay’s Super Team, Patel relates a personal story about his relationship with his father and a childhood caught between his father’s deep reverence for Hinduism and his own love of western culture, particularly super hero cartoons.
In Sanjay’s Super Team, moviegoers will meet three different Hindu deities: the monkey-like Hanuman, the goddess of power and protection Durga, and the blue-skinned Vishnu, who represents preservation. Oscar-winning composer Mychael Danna (Life of Pi) provides the soundtrack for the story, which, like many of Pixar’s other shorts, contains no dialogue.
