Like DuckTales before it, Disney XD’s Big Hero 6 animated series has yet to declare an official premiere, but there’s good news in store. Prepare a hearty fist-bump for a Season 2 renewal, while a new teaser and photo highlights the returning cast.
Big Hero 6
Disney’s Big Hero 6 animated series roped in a surprising number of the original movie’s stars to reprise their roles, but how long until the team gets back to bumping fists? A first teaser for the animated superhero sequel promises a fall 2017 premiere, and even a cookie.
It still remains to be seen if Disney and Marvel’s Big Hero 6 will ever get a second life in theaters, but the upcoming 2017 animated continuation is no slouch when it comes to casting. Not only will stars like Maya Rudolph and Scott Adsit return, so too will Sherlock and The Walking Dead stars join the mix.
Well-received though Disney’s Marvel-ous Big Hero 6 was back in 2014 (it won the freakin’ Oscar), there hasn’t been very much followup by way of a sequel. Now, Disney XD promises to continue the adventures of Hiro, Baymax and the team in a new 2017 TV series, but what might it mean on the movie end?
After selecting the best sci-fi movies of the last 25 years and the best comedies of the last 25 years, the only logical way to wrap up our #CountdownToUltron and Avengers 2 here on ScreenCrush was to choose the best superhero movies of the last 25 years as well. Initially, this was just supposed to be a brief essay. But on an innocent field trip to the world’s most advanced genetics lab, this blog post was bitten by a radioactive list and transformed into the gargantuan piece you see before you. On that day, we all learned a valuable lesson: That with great power must come great listicles.
If you saw Big Hero 6, you fell in love with Baymax, there's just no way around it. He doesn't just save the day, he’s also lovable and sweet and cuddly. And, that's no accident. Disney animators based a lot of Baymax’s look on a young child. His walk was specifically modeled after a toddler with a full diaper. These are just some of the super duper facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which returns to Disney and Marvel's Big Hero 6!
We already knew there were some awesomely nerdy references in ‘Big Hero 6,’ but did you know that Disney’s animated Marvel film also featured some Easter eggs from other animated Disney films? Specifically, if you paid very, very close attention, you probably saw some ‘Frozen’ references in the fictional city of San Fransokyo. If you missed them, this new video is here to point them out.
‘Big Hero 6’ may only be tangentially related to the Marvel comic on which it is based and completely unconnected to the larger Marvel cinematic universe, but it still has the obligatory Stan Lee cameo. Yes, this is an animated movie featuring an animated version of the legendary comic book icon/Marvel mascot. But hey, it’s a tradition at this point.
Disney's upcoming roster of animated pictures already includes projects like Pixar's long-awaited 'The Good Dinosaur,' 'Inside Out,' and 'Finding Dory.' Now the company has officially dated two more projects from its Walt Disney Animation Studios.
The showdown between 'Interstellar' and 'Big Hero 6' has got to be one of the most interesting things to happen to the box office in 2014. After all, it would be tough to find two movies that are simultaneously so different and so alike. Both are pro-science adventures that are all about using your intelligence to save your friends and family. However, one is an animated, family friendly release from Disney and the other is a three-hour epic from the ever-serious Christopher Nolan. In other words, they represent opposite ends of the blockbuster spectrum.
