So when will the Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer debut? This week. When and how? Thats a bit more complicated.

We’ve previously shown you the original Big Hero 6 designs from the 1998, sketches which were made for the development of the original comic book that spawned the Disney animated movie. Today I wanted to share some of the early concept art for the Big Hero 6 animated movie created by Kevin Dart, an artist whose style I absolutely love. You may recognize his name as we’ve posted some of his art on the site in the past, and also we premiered his exclusive Interstellar poster which was available at the IMAX Friday screenings. Dart has posted some of his work on the film online, and the paintings include some development work on the San Francisco/Tokyo mash-up world of San Frantokyo, as well as early concepts of a very different looking Bay-max design more in line with the original character design sketches than the comic book source material.
