The first teaser trailer for Disney’s Big Hero 6 hit the internet today. With Disney Animation making a huge comeback, and with the unwavering success of Marvel, this movie looks like huge cash cow. The teaser doesn’t offer much, but it does offer enough humor and whimsy to remind me of a Pixar film. Not sure yet how it will rank with a film like The Incredibles, but it does have a lot of promise.
From Disney UK’s YouTube channel:
With all the heart and humour 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 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. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”).
