Now playing in theaters is Walt Disney Animation Studios Big Hero 6. Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, the fantastic film follows robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) who, after a tragic event, turns to inflatable and huggable robot companion Baymax (Scott Adsit). With a dangerous plot unfolding on the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro transforms a group of like-minded friends – adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (Jamie Chung), precision freak Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (T.J. Miller) – into high-teach heroes determined to solve the mystery and save the day.
At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive interview with T.J. Miller. He talked about what it was like doing the voice-over work, the incredible animation, how the story changed during production, what it’s been like working with Mike Judge on Silicon Valley and what’s coming up on season 2, and a lot more. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
