Big Hero Six will be Disney's very first animated Marvel feature — taken from the lesser known, but highly praised, Japanese superhero manga of the same name. Check out this brand new artwork. We love what they've done to the Golden Gate Bridge.
This brand new image is straight out of D23 and (we think) shows the backs of the robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and his robot buddy Baymax, on top of the balloon. Together they join a superhero team in San Fransokyo, which is apparently how Disney is going to hook the US audience, since the comic is set in Tokyo. Still cool — excited to see what they do with it.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Big Hero 6,” an action comedy adventure about 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 November 7, 2014.
