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.
