Making of Pixar Sanjay’s Super Team
The story of director Sanjay Patel, who grew up superhero-obsessed and struggling to connect with his father’s religious heritage.
Patel and producer Nicole Grindle about how Pixar brought Patel’s childhood to life in a short that’s been hailed for both its storytelling and its gorgeous visuals.
Sanjay’s Super Team follows a young boy who’d rather spend his free time daydreaming about his favorite cartoons than praying with his father every day, and the two repeatedly clash, especially since Sanjay’s TV and his father’s shrine are only a few feet away from each other. It’s only after Sanjay reimagines his father’s deities as the superheroes he idolizes that the two are able to find some common ground. Even though it’s a story that’s specific to Patel’s childhood, it raises universal questions about family and heritage, tugging on the heartstrings in a way that only Pixar can.
