Too often in superhero tales, science falls in the realm of the baddies. The scientists are the cackling madmen (and almost always men) in white lab coats. They’re irresponsible with their genius. Meanwhile, the hero has their superpowers thrust upon them. What they lack in smarts, they make up for in determination. Big Hero 6 flips the script by making science cool, but never loses the cute and nerdy heart of heroes who are still out of their depth. Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, Disney Animation Studios’ new movie is filled with gorgeous designs, exciting action, and endearing characters—especially the cuddly robot Baymax (Scott Adsit)—but its most noble deed is getting younger audience members to see science as heroic.
