Disney’s First Marvel Adaptation ‘Big Hero 6′ Looks Irresistible
Disney (NYSE:DIS) is finally giving the world a closer look at its upcoming animated Marvel Comics adaptation, Big Hero 6. Though the previous trailer gave audiences an extremely brief look at robot hero Baymax, the new clip shows more of the characters as they team up to save the futuristic city of San Fransokyo.
The movie, described as an “action-packed comedy-adventure” follows genius robotics prodigy Hiro Harnada (Ryan Potter of Nickelodeon’s Supah Ninjas), his closest companion Baymax (30 Rock’s Scott Adsit) and his group of friends, Fred (T.J. Miller), Go Go Tomago (Jamie Chung), Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), and Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.) as they pull together to form a band of unlikely “high-tech heroes” in an effort to save their city after “a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot. “
The film, co-directed by Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt), is based off Marvel’s comic mini-series of the same name and is Disney’s first film featuring characters from the Marvel universe. The animated flick, which is being adapted by Hall and Jordan Roberts, also features the voices of Maya Rudolph as Hiro’s Aunt Cass, Alan Tudyk as tech guru Alistair Krei, and James Cromwell as world-renowned roboticist Professor Robert Callaghan. But while there may no shortage of loveable characters to choose from in the movie, it seems Disney is most interested in introducing kids to the inflatable robot Baymax, who once again steals most of the spotlight in this new trailer.
