Disney has released the first Big Hero 6 trailer. 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 who, with his robot companion Baymax in tow, teams up with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters to save the metropolis from destruction. In keeping with the tradition of first trailers for Disney and Pixar animated films, this is very much a teaser that focuses on one specific sequence from the movie. Nevertheless, it’s cute to watch Hiro try to fit some armor on his chunky robot buddy, and I’ll be interested to see how Disney sells the superhero aspect of the film in subsequent trailers.
Hit the jump to watch the Big Hero 6 trailer. The film features the voices of T.J. Miller, Maya Rudolph, and Jamie Chung. Big Hero 6 opens November.

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.
