Disney has released a new Big Hero 6 clip online. Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) directed the adaptation of the Marvel comic, which takes place in the high-tech city of San Fransokyo, and tells the story of a robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter) who, with his robot companion Baymax (Scott Adsit) in tow, teams up with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters to save the metropolis from destruction.
I’m not familiar with the source material, but I really dug the trailer and am looking forward to seeing this movie next month. I think it’s interesting that a lot of the more clever writing on the studio end of things these days is for animated projects. This clip is most certainly from earlier in the film considering it seems to be the scene where Hiro and Baymax first meet. Hit the jump to check out the new Big Hero 6 clip. The film also features the voices of Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr., and Alan Tudyk. Big Hero 6 opens in 3D on November 7th. And be sure to check back in with us tomorrow, since we have a lot more coverage on this film hitting then.
Here’s the official synopsis for Big Hero 6:
“Big Hero 6” features brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who 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. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, the CG-animated “Big Hero 6” hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 7, 2014.
