Big Hero 6, from the makers of Wreck It Ralph and Frozen, comes to theaters November 7th!
While on my press event in L.A., I got a sneak peek at the upcoming animated movie Big Hero 6 and the Disney Animated Short: FEAST.
We drove into the studio lot and were dropped off right in front of the Disney Animation Studios building. Outside you could see that they studios were truly celebrating this new animated movie. Each of the kiosks has Big Hero 6 posters!
We all got out our phones/cameras and started taking selfies with our fellow bloggers! We knew that we were moments away from getting a sneak peek at something not many people have had the chance to see. Big Hero 6 is not a complete film yet (were were told that they had about 10 more weeks on this animated movie before it would be theater ready).
Walking into the Animation building my jaw dropped. Disney knows how to celebrate their movies! The entire lobby was decked out in Big Hero 6 decor!
Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”). Big Hero 6 is the 54th feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Roy was excited to share this movie with all of us!
Roy Conli, Don Hall and Chris Williams were in the viewing room with us giving us the details about this upcoming animated movie.
Don and Chris stood in the front of the theater and talked to us about each clip. We watched, thrilled at the images on the big screen, and listened intently to the inside scoop we were receiving! We got to see sketches of the characters, heard details of how they were developed, and even got to see the rough version of the movie in clips. It was AMAZING!
Big Hero 6 is inspired on the Marvel comics…same title, same character names, but a NEW STORY! This story is located in SAN FRANSOKYO (a combination of Tokyo and San Fransisco). It is an action movie filled with heart and humor. You will cry, laugh, and fall in love with these characters!
This story focuses on the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). Baymax is just a huge huggable robot that reminds me of a baby penguin waddling.
When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller).
Six friends must save the world as they know it from a mysterious villain…Yokai. Yokai is the masked man behind the terrible tragedy that strikes San Fransokyo. He has stolen technology and made it EVIL! Hiro feels the need to stop this masked man… so he transforms a group of nerds into a team of high-tech crime fighters—“Big Hero 6”—with one mission: Track down Yokai and bring him to justice.
Since the film was on complete, we didn’t get to see it in it’s entirety…but we got the gist. I walked away knowing that this was going to become a new family favorite! Disney has done it again! Action, adventure, and comedy rolled up into an amazing animated film that generations will love to watch over and over again!
