We found out a while back that, in an earlier version of Big Hero 6, the Hamada brothers put rocket boots on their cat, Mochi, transforming him into ROCKET CAT. Now, thanks to a deleted scene from the film, we can finally see Rocket Cat in action.
These storyboards reveal an alternate intro for Big Hero 6, and while it's silly fun, it's definitely not as great as the bot-fighting sequence we got in the final film. While the story team was sad to see Rocket Cat go, they did sort of preserve him in the final film. When Hiro first arrives at the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, we briefly see a cat who has been fitted with rocket boots; it's just not Mochi.
That's probably for the best. Mochi doesn't look too happy about the boots.
Hopefully, we'll get to see more scenes that didn't pass "beta testing" in the coming weeks.
