Going to San Diego Comic-Con this upcoming July? If so, you’ll be in for a treat as Pixar’s upcoming short, Sanjay’s Super Team will have its North American premiere during the famed event – scheduled to premiere on Thursday, July 9 at 11 AM in the Indigo Ballroom, Hilton Bayfront. Paired with the November 25 release of The Good Dinosaur, Sanjay’s Super Team will take the audience on a personal journey inspired by director Sanjay Patel’s Indian roots.
As noted by The LA Times article, the seven-minute short 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.

Disney Studios announced (on their official Instagram account), a behind-the-scenes look at the production process titled, ‘The Super Story Behind the Pixar Short’ will accompany the premiere giving the audience a peek at this clever take on superheroes. If you are unable to attend the event, be sure to order your copy of the official ‘Art of Sanjay’s Super Team’ on Amazon released by Chronicle Books (December 1, 2015) and immerse yourself into the beautiful world created by Patel and his team.
