We have the first trailer for Big Hero 6! What is Big Hero 6? It’s the next effort from the Disney team that gave us Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen (so…good pedigree there) and is theoretically based on a Marvel comic from the 1990s of the of the same name, although if you blinked back then you probably missed it.
Big Hero 6 is a superhero team led by 13-year-old supergenius Hiro Takachiho, and his robot bodyguard, Baymax. The original storyline of the comic is a pretty eye-popping combination of superhero arcs, nuclear anxiety, and family angst, so we’re really excited to see how it translates into a film.
Co-Director Don Hall selected the story and pitched it to John Lasseter a few years after Disney’s acquisition of Marvel Entertainment. Hall was joined by Chris Williams (who also worked on Bolt and whose next project might be a Philip K. Dick adaptation) and while this is very much a Disney film rather than a Marvel Cinematic Universe venture, Joe Quesada is involved in the production. Check out more stills from the film here and here!
Big Hero 6 opens November 7th.
