We’re getting our first look at the animated short that will accompany “The Good Dinosaur” when it hits theaters this Thanksgiving. “Sanjay’s Super Team” will show what happens when pop culture collides with traditional culture.
In this clip we see what happens when two generations collide — over the volume on a TV. Really, who hasn’t had moments like this at home:
The short is directed by accomplished artist and animator Sanjay Patel. He used his own experiences to tell the story of a young, first-generation Indian-American boy whose love for western pop culture comes into conflict with his father’s traditions. Sanjay is absorbed in the world of cartoons and comics, while his father tries to draw him into the traditions of his Hindu practice. Tedium and reluctance quickly turn into an awe-inspiring adventure as the boy embarks on a journey he never imagined, returning with a new perspective that they can both embrace.
The Good Dinosaur opens in theatres November 25, 2015!
