    Disney-Pixar recently released the teaser for the upcoming "Sanjay's Super Team." The animated short – the first from the studio that features an Indian-American family as the main characters – focuses on a young boy who would rather spend his day watching superheroes on TV than partake in his dad's religious meditation.

    The seven-minute short debuted in June at the Academy International Animated Film Festival in France, and will be screened in theaters before the release of Disney-Pixar movie "The Good Dinosaur" in November.

    Director Sanjay Patel based the short off his real-life experiences growing up as the son to an Indian immigrant in San Bernardino, Calif.

    Patel has also been involved in other Disney-Pixar projects including "Ratatouille," "Toy Story 2" and "The Incredibles."

    "Sanjay's Super Team" will play ahead of "The Good Dinosaur" in theaters starting on Nov. 25.
