While lots of the early November movie buzz has been about Interstellar, definitely start looking forward to Big Hero 6. It’s an action-packed delight. A wonderful blend of superhero origin story and buddy movie with a big giant heart.
In the film, Hiro and his brother’s robot Baymax, form a superhero team to try and stop a rising super-villain. And while most of the marketing and hype has been about the admittedly awesome Baymax, the other four characters are really fantastic too. In particular, TJ Miller as Fred, a stoner comic book geek with a Bruce Wayne-sized secret, is one film fans are sure to latch onto.
During one scene in particular, the whole team visits Fred’s room and it’s geek nirvana. Shelves and shelves of toys, books, collectibles and more. And when I asked directors Don Hall and Chris Williams about it, they confirmed this is one scene fans are really going to want to keep an eye on because it’s filled with Disney and Marvel references.
Below, read our conversation about Fred’s Easter Egg filled room and why you need to stay through the credits starting on November 7. Read More »

November 7 brings two of the biggest movies of the year. First is Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and the second is Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6. Interstellar has only screened for a very small selection of people but Big Hero 6 is starting to roll out. Thursday night, the social media embargo on the film broke and the Twitter reactions began.
The early verdict based on about a dozen opinions? Disney Animation has another hit on their hands. Not all the opinions are warm and fuzzy though. Below, you can read a little early buzz about Disney’s Big Hero 6. Read More »

Most of what we’ve seen from Big Hero 6 involves the young inventor Hiro at home with his not-yet-armored inflatable robot Baymax. That stuff has been entertaining, but now you can see the film’s villain, along with a trailer-length blast of action featuring the story’s entire team of would-be heroes. At New York Comic Con Disney Animation debuted a sizzle reel trailer for the film that will give casual viewers a much better idea of the look of the film, the characters, and the action as they all come together. Any Baymax is still cute as hell, even when encased in imposing armor. Check out the Big Hero 6 NYCC trailer below. Read More »
Earlier this summer, a group of journalists was invited to Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, CA to learn about the impressive process that went into their latest film Big Hero 6. Big Hero 6 is based on, but not linked to, a Marvel comic book of the same name. That makes it the first Disney animated Marvel movie and while the comic and film share very little in common two things they do share are the focus on action and emotion.
We posted a nice long piece about all of the cool tidbits we learned about the film but, we also got a chance to sit down with some of the lead creators of the film. You’ve already seen our interview with the story guys and now, we’ve got an interview directors Don Hall and Chris Williams. Hall (Winnie the Pooh) was specifically tasked by John Lasseter to make a movie based on Marvel and Williams (Bolt) was brought on later to help with the load.
In our interview we talk about pitching a story to John Lasseter, working on the film’s music, creating some of the superhero personas, the genesis of the project and more. Below, read our interview with the men responsible for Big Hero 6. Read More »

We discussed the complicated development of an animated film with so many moving parts, what it’s like working as a writer at Disney Animation Studios, the schedule and how far the work ahead, writing superhero action that meshes with Disney’s sensibilities and why they think Disney hasn’t done many sequels.
