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 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.

As if Disney Animation weren’t doing well enough already, this fall sees them joining forces with Marvel for the very first time. Big Hero 6 tells the story of young robotics prodigy Hiro (voiced by Ryan Potter), who assembles a ragtag team of superheroes to save his town of San Fransokyo.

The first trailer was basically just a clip, showing Hiro trying to squeeze his puffy robot pal Baymax into an Iron Man-style suit. But today, we have a new Big Hero 6 trailer that teases a little more of the action that awaits — including a brief glimpse of the villain. Check it out after the jump.

Some movies are born easily: they represent a whole bunch of factors like script, talent and money that happen to be in the same place at the same time. Others aren’t born so easily, and lurch towards screens in fits and starts. Case in point: Disney’s animated adaptation of a Philip K. Dick short story, King of the Elves, and Sony’s attempt to make a new movie out of the ’80s toy line and cartoon Masters of the Universe.

Both films might be picking up steam again, however, after falling off the radar for a while. Read More »
