Created by Pixar alum Sanjay Patel, the 3DCG preschool series kicked off yesterday, celebrating Diwali, the Hindi ‘festival of lights.’
Pixar alum Sanjay Patel announced the launch of his 3DCG animated preschool series Ghee Happy (20x11) yesterday on the Ghee Happy Studio YouTube Channel in honor of Diwali, the Hindi “festival of lights.” The show playfully reimagines Hindu deities as little kids discovering their powers in a deity daycare called... Ghee Happy!
The series follows four Hindu deities - Kali, Saraswati, Krishna, and Ganesha - as they encounter and learn about the rest of the Hindu pantheon. Together, they celebrate traditions like kitefighting and Rakhi and learn the real meaning of Diwali, the beloved festival of lights.
Watch the trailer and music video, then head to Ghee Happy Studio YouTube Channel to watch Episode 1:
Patel’s animation credits include Monsters Inc., Ratatouille, Cars, Toy Story 2, and The Incredibles 1 and 2; he also directed the Oscar and Annie-nominated short film Sanjay's Super Team, inspired by his childhood.
