We’ve always known that when Disney acquired the rights to Marvel, we would be getting a lot of Marvel/Disney properties coming to life. Well, it seems that Disney has picked it’s first Marvel Comic that it wants to adapt for it’s Animation studio. Big Hero 6 will be released in 2014, and the synopsis for the film, as well as first footage, is below!
Here’s the official synopsis for Big Hero 6:
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 CG-animated “Big Hero 6” hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.
Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) will direct the film, and he had this to say about it.
“I was looking for something on the obscure side, something that would mesh well with what we do. The idea of a kid and a robot story with a strong brother element, it’s very Disney….Marvel properties take place in the real world. We were looking for something to do where we could make our own world — bring in the Japanese influences, have recognizable landmarks mashed up with a Japanese aesthetic.”
Big Hero 6 will be released in 3D when it hits theaters on November 7, 2014.
