First BIG HERO 6 Trailer; Disney’s Animated Adaptation of the Marvel Comic

     May 22, 2014


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. MillerMaya 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.

    Disney is really on top of their animated movies now that lasseter has a foot in each studio. That was a perfect teaser trailer

    • Aquartertoseven

      Except for Wreck it Ralph, that film was meh.

      • The Flobbit

        That was Dreamworks, and Lasseter doesn’t do Dreamworks.

      • Aquartertoseven

        No, that was Disney, the same branch that made Frozen and Tangled. Epic fail there guy.

      • The Flobbit

        I stand corrected. Try to be civil.

      • Aquartertoseven

        How was I not? Epic fail is an offensive phrase now? Since when? I didn’t get the memo.

      • d

        It may not be offensive, but it sure is dumb.

      • Aquartertoseven

        Lol at all of these people highlighting how ridiculous it was to confuse Disney and Dreamworks, if you stop talking about it, it stops becoming embarrassing.

      • dolphin558

        Aqua – Please be civil. Last warning.

      • Aquartertoseven

        Who are you to be threatening me and yet again, how am I not being civil? “Epic fail there guy”, how is that impolite, it’s completely harmless. There are some real overly sensitive people on this thread.

        It may not be offensive, but it sure is dumb.

      • Drake

        I quite liked Wreck-It Ralph. I would take it over The Lego Movie.

      • Lex Walker

        Definitely, any day of the week.

      • Aquartertoseven

        The Lego Movie was fun though and worked.Wreck it Ralph was too immature and unlikeable; guy rampages through the games of others, not giving a damn if they’re deleted, for some stupid medal. Plus, unlike a lot of animated films nowadays, it was so juvenile and dumb. Particularly everything Sarah Silverman’s character said, I know she was a kid, but damn, talk about dialogue appealing to 3 year olds.

      • Lex Walker

        I’d disagree, Wreck-it Ralph was pretty damned funny.

  • Eu

    Is it just me or the music sounds a lot like Bear McCreary’s Agents of Shield Theme ?

    • Pk

      Reminded me of Alan Silverstri score for avengers

    • milo

      That’s exactly what it reminded me of. I wonder if it’s from a trailer library or some other movie.

    Dying to see more :D

  • Scratch89

    Made me giggle.

  • The Flobbit

    Giant robot suits, Japan, and brilliant inventor prodigies?

    So basically it’s Pacific Rim meets The Wolverine meets Iron Man?

    • Lex Walker

      Really? Because Wolverine is the only movie set in Japan? You couldn’t think of better comparisons? Are there really no movies set in Japan that involve giant robots? For serious? Also, I think the setting of this movie is San Franokyo, or some weird city hybrid…whatever the hell that means.

      • The Flobbit

        Umm, I was thinking of the Silver Samurai. Y’know, that giant armored robot? I’m not an idiot.

        And San Fransokyo is based on Japanese Tokyo with a bit of San Fran thrown in there.

      • Lex Walker

        Spoiler alert…the silver samurai isn’t a robot.

      • The Flobbit

        It’s a giant metal suit. Like this one.

      • Lex Walker

        Right, and I’m just saying a metal suit isn’t the same thing as a robot. Semantics, but still. Otherwise, that’s like saying old school knights were robots (they were not, in case you were wondering).

      • The Flobbit

        I’ve heard it both ways…
        But yeah, you’re right.

    • Aquartertoseven

      It’s Robotboy meets the Adipose from Doctor Who.

    Does anyone realize that there were officially 5 movies this year based on Marvel characters? Damn.

    • RedMercury

      And will we see Hiro and Baymax in Avengers 3 instead of The Incredibles?

  • Doug_101

    Cute trailer, though I’m surprised they make no mention of the Marvel connection.

  • Colin Christian

    That looked great.I am now interested in the movie,so the trailer did it’s job.

  • Traverd

    Reminds me of the teaser trailer for The Incredibles.

  • Sam

    Fantastic trailer. The hair’s all wrong though. They appear to be copying Hiccup and his Dragon for a selling point. Why not use the comic hair; and where are his glasses?

  • Mezmero

    Wreck It Ralph was a solid movie I don’t know why people say it was bad. This looks like it will be a classic.

  • Flash

    I hope it doesn’t turn out to be like “Astro Boy”

  • Strifeshadow

    The coolest thing about this so far is the setting.

    The weird mashup of Tokyo and Frisco looks really awesome.

  • Amanda

    very cute. Reminds me of the first Iron Man movie. Seems like it’ll be iron man and avengers for kids in cgi, like the incredibles in style.
