Pixar's 'Sanjay's Super Team' takes a gamble on Hindu theme

By Anne Marie Hankins, RNS
HOLLYWOOD---Pixar, the computer animation studio beloved for its kid-friendly fare such as “Finding Nemo” and “Inside Out,” is not known for taking on religious themes. But its newest short film tells a personal story about a boy who learns to appreciate his religious heritage by envisioning the Hindu gods as superheroes. “Sanjay’s Super Team,” directed by artist Sanjay Patel, is based on Patel’s relationship with his father and his experience growing up in California as the son of Indian-American immigrants.
