Baymax is a lovable, cuddly and super-heroic robot in the latest trailer for “Big Hero 6,” released Thursday.
The new spot for the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film shows a young protagonist Hiro (voiced by Ryan Potter) first discovering the inflatable robot (voiced by Scott Asdit), which was programmed by his late brother.
The 14-year-old robotics expert and his mechanical pal quickly become inseparable. “It’s like spooning a warm marshmallow,” notes one of Hiro’s friends.
However, the gang’s fictional city of San Fransokyo soon finds itself under siege by a kabuki mask-wearing villain. Baymax helps Hiro and his friends fight this menace by transforming them into high-tech heroes of their very own.
“Big Hero 6,” which also stars the voices of Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Alan Tudyk, and T.J. Miller, is based on a Marvel comic and is the first Marvel property Disney has animated for the big screen since acquiring its parent company in 2009.
“Big Hero 6” hits theaters Nov. 7.
