While you could make a case for Disney/Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy being their most obscure property opening in 2014, the partnership’s animated adaptation Big Hero 6 might be flying even further under the radar. The latest news on the movie has Chris Williams (Bolt) joining writer-director Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) as co-director. As THR reports, Roy Conli (Tangled) has also come on board as producer.
In Big Hero 6, “Brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion, a robot named Baymax, Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city.” Big Hero 6 opens November 7, 2014.
