Disney's Big Hero 6 may be one of the "smaller" superhero movies to hit theaters this year but with it come rather large expectations. For one, the animated film is based on a mostly-unknown Marvel comic so it comes with the hopes of living up to its live-action brethren The Avengers, Thor, and so forth. But even more than that, this is Disney's first animated feature where they are taking advantage of the Marvel library and it could open up a lot of doors. If this film is a success it will likely lead to a new animated superhero film every year or so, and even if they are all geared at kids like Big Hero 6 the possibilities are endless.
Just yesterday Walt Disney Animation revealed the full voice cast for Big Hero 6, adding Ryan Potter, Genesis Rodriguez, Scott Adsit, Damon Wayans Jr., James Cromwell, and Alan Tudyk to join Maya Rudolph, TJ Miller, and Jamie Chung. Now today comes a brand new trailer that showcases the voicework and teases a kabuki-masked villain. Here's the official synopsis:
"With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery."
Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, Big Hero 6 opens in 3D
