The US-based film production studio Disney-Pixar plans to release a short animation movie dubbed as “Sanjay’s Super Team” in India on 4th December, 2015. It premiered on June 15, 2015 at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France. The first clip was released on October 15, 2015.
The movie showcases Hindu Gods as the superheroes and is directed by Sanjay Patel. The movie is a personal story of Sanjay’s journey to discover the Hindu world. The animation movie depicts the story of a young, first generation Indian-American boy, whose desire for the western pop culture creates conflict with his father’s Hindu traditions. In the movie, the boy is seen absorbed in the world of cartoons and comics. His father, on the other hand, tries to draw him into the traditions of his Hindu practice.
According to Sanjay Patel, the movie is his personal story and a “mostly true” chronicle of his journey to understand the Hindu world that is important to his parents.
