Speaking of Marvel anime, check out your first look at the studio’s latest stab at animated moviemaking, this time with their partners over at Disney. We’re talking of course about “Big Hero 6″, based on a little known Marvel series of the same name from the late ’90s created by Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau (no, not that Steven Seagal), the film is being directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”). Marvel recently re-launched the title a few years ago.
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.
No voice cast information yet.
