'Big Hero 6' Trailer: Watch the First Footage From Disney's Animated Marvel MovieMike Sampson |
'Big Hero 6' is Disney's first animated movie since the massive success of 'Frozen' and it's also Disney's first animated Marvel movie. For those reasons alone, 'Big Hero 6' should make a ton of money. But, then you see this brand new trailer and you realize this is a movie that both kids and adults alike are gonna love.
Like some of the early teasers for 'Frozen,' this teaser doesn't give away much of the plot, but introduces us to one of the cuddly, funny supporting characters, Baymax. Baymax is a squishy robot designed to be a nurse, but in this trailer, we see Hiro (our hero), attempt to transform Baymax into a superhero. It doesn't go according to plan. (While it's cynical to start thinking marketing when you watch a trailer, you just KNOW Disney is going to sell millions of Baymax stuffed animals. We've seen just about 90 seconds and he's already adorable.)
While we don't get a great sense as to the plot of the film, it goes like this:
'Big Hero 6' follows 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, 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.
Strangely, Disney has yet to confirm any voice cast for the film, but rumors suggest that Maya Rudolph, Jamie Chung and T.J. Miller have all signed on to the film.
'Big Hero 6' opens in theaters on November 7. Should it do well, who knows, we might get another Marvel animated movie...
