Having limited knowledge of the Hindu heritage, we were excited to be immersed into a world that was unfamiliar, yet could remind you of your own familiar past. With its stunning fast-paced camera work and bold animation style, Sanjay's Super Team is an exciting look into Pixar's future. After the screening, director Sanjay Patel and producer Nicole Paradis Grindle gave some insight into the films production — including how the lighting completely changed the feel of the film and made it feel "complete". The completeness came by giving the characters a punchy Tron-like glow to really sell the fantasy and anime qualities of the film.

This anime-inspired styling stands out in a very unique way - Pixar Post Forum user UntoldStories113 wrote about her experience viewing the short at the Annecy International Film Festival in June - "I saw the short at Annecy, and believe me, it's visually gorgeous. It's unconventional for a Pixar short, yes, and not at all what we're used to. But the visuals play a big part in conveying the story and especially the clash of the cultures." After viewing the short ourselves, we couldn't have said it better - the change feels exciting and fresh.
Update: The Official YouTube Channel for Disney UK has released a short clip highlighting the separation of Sanjay and his father. Watch below and share your thought with other Pixar fans in the Pixar Post Forum.
