Two New Stills to Preview Pixar's Short Film 'Sanjay's Super Team'
It's Comic-Con this week! That means loads of previews from all kinds of different movies. USA Today has revealed the first two actual photos from the upcoming animated short film Sanjay's Super Team, the latest original creation from Pixar Animation Studios that will be attached to the release of The Good Dinosaur, in theaters this November (two new original Pixar movies in one year, plus short films, huzzah!). We've featured a concept art piece for this short before, but these two photos show us the actual finished animation and how it all looks. It's a preview for Comic-Con as director Sanjay Patel is hosting a panel on Thursday called The Super Story Behind the Pixar Short Sanjay's Super Team. Take a look below.
Photos from USA Today. The film's director, Sanjay Patel, will be appearing on a Comic-Con 2015 panel on Thursday. Here's the new stills from Sanjay's Super Team, playing before of Pixar's The Good Dinosaur:
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.
