The release of last weekend’s Big Hero 6 was the first time many people had even heard of the Big Hero 6. In fact, however, the characters have been around in the Marvel comic book universe for over 16 years. Not that you’d necessarily recognize them. As some early sketches of Hiro and Baymax show, they looked way different back in the day.

The success of Disney Animation continued this weekend with the release of Big Hero 6. A loose adaptation of a Marvel Comic of the same name, the fast-paced, emotional action film follows a young boy named Hiro who employs his older brother’s health robot Baymax to help track down a mysterious villain.
That’s the non-spoiler way to describe it. But with the movie now in theaters, and already a hit, it’s time to talk spoilers. Speaking with the film’s directors Don Hall and Chris Williams, we asked about a bunch of the super spoilery questions you probably had after watching the film. Character motivations, ultimate fates, potential plot holes, cameos and more. Below, the directors answer your Big Hero 6 questions. Read More »

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 »

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 »
