Storyline

Sanjay, a young boy, is watching his favourite cartoon show, the Super Team, while his father is preparing for the daily meditation.

But does Sanjay know that, sometimes, cunning and skilled adversaries can be hiding in the most unusual of places? Written by Nick Riganas

Excellent Visuals but Weak Story

Sanjay's Super Team (2015)

*** (out of 4)

Mildly entertaining short from Pixar about a young boy named Sanjay who wants to watch his superheroes on television but his father demands that he join him in meditation. Soon the boy's fantasy takes form as he joins his superheroes in battle.

I must admit that I'm a little surprised that SANJAY'S SUPER TEAM was nominated for an Oscar. Well, I guess I shouldn't be surprised since it's from Pixar but I really didn't think this was among their best work. I will say that the animation is certainly the greatest thing going for the film as we get some amazing visuals and especially the colors on the three Hindu gods. The story itself is okay but I really didn't find it to be too special.
