The LA Times just revealed what the short film accompanying The Good Dinosaur will be when it's released in theaters later this year. It's called Sanjay's Super Team, and it's directed by Sanjay Patel; based on his own experiences as a kid, the film will delve on what it's like to be an Indian American.
Here's a description of Sanjay's Super Team:
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.
Nicole Paradis Grindle is producing, and the music will be provided by Mychael Danna. This is Sanjay Patel's first project at Pixar as a director.
Sanjay's Super Team will premiere at the Annecy International Film Festival this upcoming June, but the general audience will be able to see it in the fall: on the 25th November in the US, and two days later in the UK.
