Sanjay's Super Team

Yay Pixar! The animation studio has unveiled a first look at fun some concept art from the new short film Sanjay's Super Team, which is showing in front of The Good Dinosaur in theaters later this November. The short will premiere officially at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in France, which is why they're drumming up some buzz with some good publicity. This story comes from the LA Times, and profiles Sanjay Patel, an artist at Pixar who graduated to director with his short film that is inspired by his own youth, and The Avengers (perfect timing!). I wish we got to see them as they appear in this (does this count as Pixar's first Marvel short film?), alas this is just him eating cereal. See Sanjay's concept art below.

Here's the first bit of concept art revealed by the LA Times for Pixar's new short film Sanjay's Super Team:

Pixar's New Short Film - Sanjay's Super Team

The short is seven minutes and begins "with young Sanjay watching cartoons and eating cereal in a bland, beige room as his father jingles a bell, beckoning him to join in meditation. Reluctant and bored by the ceremony, Sanjay begins daydreaming a kind of ancient, Hindu version of The Avengers, with the gods appearing like superheroes. As the daydream progresses, the color, light and animation of the film grows increasingly dazzling and cosmic, and Sanjay grows closer to understanding his father's inner world." The short was first pitched in the summer of 2012 by Sanjay, but just now came to fruition. It's produced by Nicole Paradis Grindle, who served as associate producer on Toy Story 3 and Monsters Univ., with music by Canadian composer Mychael Danna, of scores for films like Life of Pi, Fracture and Monsoon Wedding.

For those wondering which short is playing in front of Pixar's Inside Out, that would be the charming Lava.

    Reminds me of the South Park episode "Super Best Friends" with Jesus, Mohammed, Moses, Krishna, Buddha and uhm...Sea Man.

    It shouldn't have to be said, but good for Pixar for supporting more Asian character led films. Even if they are shorts.

    So weird. One of my sons favorite cartoons is "Sanjay and Craig". A show about Sanjay Patel and his best friend/pet snake "Craig" and their love affair with buffalo wings. Is this the same Sanjay Patel?
