Disney Unveils New Teaser for ‘Big Hero 6’

Disney releases a new teaser trailer for ‘Big Hero 6,’ the first animated feature from the studio to utilize characters from the Marvel Universe. 

On the heels of yesterday’s peek at Big Hero 6, the first animated feature from the studio to utilize characters from the Marvel Universe, Disney has released a new teaser from the film courtesy of Yahoo Movies.

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius -- thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion -- a robot named Baymax -- and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. 

Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action, Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt), and produced by Roy Conli (Tangled).

The footage is meant to illustrate the movie’s central friendship. “Hiro wants to take the healing, loving, guileless nurse robot and turn it into a mechanized warrior,” says Williams. “That’s sort of the backbone of the film.”
