SDCC: first look at Sanjay’s Super Team

July 13th, 2015 by Dave Bowling Comments



With Pixar releasing two movies this year, it means that we also get two shorts to go along with them.

Before The Good Dinosaur, slated for a November release, director  Sanjay Patel and producer Nicole Paradis Grindle will be giving us Sanjay’s Super Team. Featuring no dialogue, the short sees young superhero fan Sanjay finding his fandom at odds with his father’s spiritual beliefs. But as you can probably tell from the picture above, they manage to find some common ground.

The animation is absolutely gorgeous and a serious departure from Pixar’s usual style. Because there’s no dialogue in the short, it relies on its very powerful visual style to communicate the story and manages it quite well. Perhaps this is down to the fact that Patel says it is based on a “mostly” true story of his own childhood experiences with his father. This seems to be a common theme with Pixar productions lately, with directors Pete Docter and Pete Sohn drawing inspiration from personal experiences and relationships for Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur respectively.


Sanjay’s Super Team will accompany The Good Dinosaur in its release on 25 November 2016.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
