BIG HERO 6 International Trailer: Hiro Hamada Meets Baymax

by     Posted 9 days ago

big-hero-6-international-trailer

Disney has released a Big Hero 6 international trailer.  Although the trailer is entirely in Japanese, after that domestic trailer dropped yesterday and absolutely melted my heart, I’m down to watch Hiro (voice by Ryan Potter) and Baymax (Scott Adsit) do just about anything, even if I can’t understand what they’re saying.

This one still has the footage of Hiro trying to train Baymax and help him suit up, but it’s got a far more somber tone to it.  Rather than open up with vibrant colors and an amusing scene like watching Baymax plug up a few holes with tape, this international version gets a funeral and rather blue and grey imagery to go with it.  However, as soon as Baymax pops up – or rather, blows up – the piece lightens significant and also gives us a look at how and why Hiro and Baymax came together in the first place.  Hit the jump to check out the Big Hero 6 international trailer.  The film opens in 3D on November 7th, and also features the voices of Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr., and Alan Tudyk.

Disney has released a new Big Hero 6 trailer 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.  Like the teaser, this trailer puts a heavy emphasis on Baymax, and I’m completely fine with that.  He comes off as funny and adorable, and this overall movie looks like it could be a lot of fun.

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

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.

Ahead of tomorrow’s trailer debut, Disney has unveiled the first Big Hero 6 trailer tease and poster for the upcoming animated film.  Ever since Disney brought Marvel under its banner, fans have been clamoring to see some sort of collaboration between the two companies on an animated feature (and, possibly in vain, hoping for a Marvel/Pixar movie).  The first collaboration between Walt Disney Studios and Marvel will hit theaters this November by way of an adaptation of the relatively obscure comic Big Hero 6, 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.  This debut poster teases the heights to which Hiro and Baymax can climb, and the trailer tease gives us our first (brief) look at some footage.

Hit the jump to check out the Big Hero 6 trailer tease and poster, click here to see a collection of new images, and come back tomorrow to watch the full trailer.  The film opens in 3D on November 7th and features the voices of T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, and Maya Rudolph.

When Disney first acquired Marvel back in 2009, fans immediately started speculating about the numerous possibilities that this partnership could create.  Chief among them was whether Disney or Pixar would be bringing a Marvel Comics property to life in the world of animation.  Rumors swirled last summer that Disney was developing an animated feature film adaptation of the Marvel comic Big Hero 6, and they were quickly followed up by an official confirmation that the project was in the early stages of development.

Well now Disney has formally announced that the first animated feature based on a Marvel property will indeed be Big Hero 6, and the film is slated for release sometime next year.  Hit the jump for more, including the first footage from the pic.

Don-Hahn-Frankenweenie-interview-slice

The black and white, stop-motion animated 3D film Frankenweenie, from director Tim Burton and based on the ideas in his 1984 live-action short, is a tale about a boy and his beloved dog. After unexpectedly losing Sparky, young Victor (voiced by Charlie Tahan) sews him back together and harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life, but quickly faces unintended and sometimes monstrous consequences for his actions. The voice cast also includes Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Atticus Shaffer and Winona Ryder.  Here’s the recent trailer.  Frankenweenie hits theaters October 5, 2012.

Last week I got to sit down with producer Don Hahn at Comic-Con.  During our wide ranging interview we talked about making Frankenweenie, if it was tough to get the studio on board, if the current popularity of The Nightmare Before Christmas helped get the film made, and more.  In addition, with Hahn producing Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie, we talked about how that’s been going, what Easter Eggs people should look for at Disneyland and Disney World, what he collects, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Ever since word first broke that Disney was looking to acquire Marvel Studios, fans started speculating about which Marvel property would inevitably be turned into an animated film by the Mouse House. With Pixar also under Disney’s distribution banner, the excitement over a possible Pixar-led Marvel film was almost palpable.  Just a few weeks ago, Pixar and Disney Animation head John Lasseter went so far as to say he “wouldn’t be opposed” to Pixar and Marvel teaming up on a property, but now it looks like the first animated Marvel film to come out of the Mouse House may be from Disney Animation.  The studio is apparently in development on an animated iteration of the comic series Big Hero 6.  Hit the jump for more.
