Disney Animation’s follow-up to “Frozen” is also its first adaptation of a Marvel comic
A boy and his robot are featured in the first full-length trailer for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Big Hero 6,” it’s first film since “Frozen” took over the world. Will the kid-friendly Marvel comic book adaptation measure up?
The newest trailer certainly has charm and laughs, with our hero Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter) frantically trying to relay a crime to a bored police officer, while his robot/best friend Baymax (voiced by Scott Adsit) unhelpfully pops a leak.
Hiro has just faced a menacing unnamed villain who wears a kabuki mask and wields an army of nanobots. You can see why he’d be alarmed, but it’s also understandable that the police are a little skeptical. Even in the face of a robot “balloon man” who tries to patch himself up with scotch tape.
We don’t get more than a glimpse of the full team that make up the titular “Big Hero 6,” also comprising of Fredzilla (TJ Miller), Go Go Tamago (Jamie Chung), Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez) and Wasabi (Damon Wayans, Jr), who band together to solve the mystery of Hiro’s older brother’s death, but there’s still plenty of time to meet them before the film’s Nov. 7 release date.
