Disney has unveiled the first trailer for Big Hero 6, their upcoming adaptation of the beloved Marvel comic. Directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt), Big Hero 6 tells the story of a robotics prodigy who, alongside his robot Baymax, joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city. The trailer doesn’t spell out the film’s plot, but it does introduce us to the two lead characters in an amusing scene. We’re pretty enthusiastic about this one.
Featuring voice work from Josh Hutcherson, Samuel L. Jackson, Freddie Highmore, T.J. Miller, Maya Rudolph and Jamie Chung.
Official synopsis for Big Hero 6:
With all the heart and humour 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 Tamago, 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. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”).
