A new trailer from Disney Animation's 'Big Hero 6' premiered at New York Comic-Con today, giving us another extended look at one of the year's oddest superhero movies. Although based on an obscure Marvel comic book of the same name, this film looks to be very much its own thing. Comic purists may groan, but this looks like the next thing that your kids are going to obsess over.
While most of the previous marketing has focused on the character of Baymax, a lovable, adorable and ready to be merchandised robot, this trailer is all about the action and it looks like this film is going to be chock full of it. There's no plot to be found here (if this is your first exposure to this film, prepare to get hopelessly lost), but it all looks very colorful and immaculately animated. We won't know if if has a heart as big as 'Frozen' until we see the finished film, but it certainly looks energetic and amusing enough.
Here's the official synopsis:
"Big Hero 6" is a heartfelt comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi No-Ginger, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.
'Big Hero 6' opens in theaters on November 7.
