You didn't think Disney and Marvel would team up for an animated superhero film and not deliver at least a few hidden surprises, did you? While it's not directly tied into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there will still be some Easter eggs for comic book fans in 'Big Hero 6,' according to the film's directors, who also tipped fans off on where to find them.

If you're excited about 'Big Hero 6,' double-down on that excitement because Disney will be debuting a new animated short when that film hits theaters, and we've got the latest sneak peek. Meet the cute star of their latest short, 'Feast' -- a little puppy with a big appetite. This preview will make you go "aww" and probably send you running for the fridge.
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.
There was a post-”princess movie” moment where Disney chased the “boy demographic.” It didnt' work out so well; Films like 'Atlantis' and 'Treasure Planet' came and went. Under the current Disney brand, 'Big Hero 6' isn't as aggressively alternative — not with Marvel as an in-house entity — but but the competition raises questions of what the Mouse House can bring to the table. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was basically a cartoon. Guardians of the Galaxy's five-character team had two fully CG characters. The Transformers moves are basically the pixel equivalent of a Stan Brakhage film. And now there's 'Big Hero 6,' a fully animated feature competing with live-action bombast. How will it stand out from the crowd? The Walt Disney legacy, and the idiosyncratic creative process that comes with it.
When it was first announced that Disney was purchasing Marvel, the minds of many fans leapt immediately to the possibility of a Disney-Pixar animated Marvel movie. We're sorta getting that in November with 'Big Hero 6' but as that movie approaches, it's become very clear that it's not really much of Marvel movie at all, other than being loosely based on the obscure 90s comic. What fans really want to know is if we'll ever see a Disney or Pixar animated movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. John Lasseter, who runs both Disney Animation and Pixar, has your answer: no.
The previous 'Big Hero 6' trailer didn't show us much beyond a glimpse at 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 antics of Baymax.
At long last, it's time to meet the cast of Disney's first animated Marvel movie, 'Big Hero 6,' and see these new characters come to life in six new images. Where previously we saw some unapproved posters for this new crop of unlikely superheroes (since taken down from the web), the cast is now here in beautiful hi-res and ready to kick some San Fransokyo butt!
Whether it was the announcement of a new feature-length 'Power Rangers' movie or just some massive wave of nostalgia settling in, we have those morphin' teenagers with attitude on the brain. Now, Bandai, the purveyor of incredible 'Power Rangers' products, announced their exclusives coming to Comic-Con 2014, and among them is one spectacular item that'll have diehard 'Rangers' fans looking to drop some green.
The idea behind 'Big Hero 6,' Walt Disney's first animated Marvel movie since they acquired the home of The Avengers, is an exciting prospect, one that we've been tracking for some time. While the full cast is still to be announced, today brings our first look at this new team of superheroes through unofficial movie posters.
