'Big Hero 6' Trailer: A Much Better Look at Disney's First Animated Marvel MovieMike Sampson |
The previous 'Big Hero 6' trailer didn't show us much beyond a glimpse of puffy robot hero Baymax struggling to fit into his robot suit. Today, we get a longer 'Big Hero 6' trailer with much more footage from Disney's upcoming animated Marvel film, though unfortunately, still a lot of focus on the wacky antics of Baymax.
Surely hoping that Baymax is the cute and cuddly Disney sidekick that gets kids interested in the adaptation of the little-known Marvel comic (and gets them to want to buy lots and lots of toys), Disney has focused the new 'Big Hero 6' trailer on the inflatable robot at the expense of the other members of the superhero team. We do get brief glimpses of Fred, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and Go Go Tamago (along with the villainous Yokai), but just as things get interesting - Baymax suits up and rockets around town, Iron Man-style - we're back to robot silliness.
And, that's OK. We'd still classify this as a teaser trailer and there's still about four months left until 'Big Hero 6' hits theaters, and we'll expect a much better look at the superhero movie as we approach its release date. And, what we do see here is really great...we just wanted a little more. For those still not caught up to speed on Disney's first animated Marvel movie:
With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, 'Big Hero 6' is an action-packed 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 Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, 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 robot named Baymax — and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.
With a voice cast that includes T.J. Miller, Maya Rudolph, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Genesis Rodriguez, James Cromwell and more, 'Big Hero 6' opens in theaters on November 7.
