Marvel’s Big Hero 6 is Disney Animation’s Next
After Wreck-It Ralph, Disney Animation Studios will be releasing a movie called Frozen. Once that’s out, they’ll buckle down on a movie that I’d very much like to see based on the comic series Big Hero 6.
What you’re looking at above is the first test footage they’ve released showing the world of San Fransokyo. Those not in the know, the miniseries I’m talking about (Big Hero 6) and the one portrayed here was a spinoff of a much older comic from 1998. The most recent five-issue series was written by fan favorite writer Chris Claremont and penciled by David Nakayama (City of Heroes). The synopsis follows thusly:
“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 movie is set to land on November 7, 2014. This will be the first in what I’d assume is going to be a long line of Marvel animated movies, I just like how they went with an obscure story for their first pick.
