BIG HERO 6

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 »

Big Hero 6 NYCC trailer 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 »

Big Hero 6 Behind the Scenes

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 6Big 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 »

Big Hero 6 hug

Two of the most recent Disney movies, Guardians of the Galaxy and Maleficent, were both massive hits. Among the few things those films have in common is they both held 4D previews at Disneyland/California Adventure in Anaheim, CA. This probably didn’t have any direct effect on the success of the films, but if it ain’t broke, why fix it? Disney just announced they’ll be giving the same 4D sneak-preview treatment for their next film, Big Hero 6. Read more about the Big Hero 6 Disney event below. Read More »

Big Hero 6 Behind the Scenes

The best Disney animated films suck you into their world. You lock in and follow the characters on a journey without ever thinking of what went into it. That’s the magic not only of Disney, but film in general.

What sets animation apart is the absolutely insane detail and years of work that go into each film. Near decades can pass in which stories are written, ripped apart and written again. Tens of thousands of miles are travelled to research the tiniest visual elements. Millions and millions of animated frames, passed between departments, all come together until you have something like Big Hero 6.

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 is based on, but not linked to, a Marvel comic book of the same name. That makes it the first Disney animated Marvel movie. While the comic and film share very little in common two things they do share are the focus on action and emotion.

In Big Hero 6, a young boy and a soft robot team up with a group of friends to become a superhero team. Over the course of several hours, we were taken around the studio to watch footage, learn about the design of the film, the writing process, animation and much more. Below, we’ll take you on that tour with us – complete with lots of photos – so you can learn all about what Disney has in store come November 7. And, most importantly, how much work went into it.

Big Hero 6 clip

Big Hero 6 is Disney’s upcoming animated film, loosely based on a Marvel comic series, that centers on a boy who weaponizes, or hero-izes as it were, his robot Baymax. We’ve seen a lot of the rotund white Baymax in previous materials for the film, but we still don’t know much about him. In this clip we meet Baymax, and find that he’s something of a caregiver, if (at first) one who is a little, er, thick. Check out the long Big Hero 6 clip below. It’s a cute and funny bit that doesn’t seem to give away anything at all important about the film.  Read More »
