About the Movie
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” comes “Big Hero 6,” an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6.” Inspired by the Marvel
comics of the same name, and featuring breathtaking action with all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”).
My Experience With The Movie
As all of you know I had the opportunity to go out to Los Angeles back in July for a number of amazing experiences, including screening some movies, some television shows and even more. As a part of this experience I got a sneak peak at some of the early footage for the Big Hero 6 movie that is coming out this November. I have to tell you, from what I saw this movie is going to take an amazing adventure that combines great animation, but also a great story that is filled with drama, adventure, friendship and so much more.
We spoke with the directors and they stated that the city that you see in the movie is a combination of name and culture from Tokyo and San Francisco. Throughout the movie you will see different ways in which they played with the cultures of both cities, in customs, food, and more to make their new world.
When I was in LA for this event, we asked the directors where they were in regards to the movie itself. They mentioned that at that point they were 50% complete, but that they would be done with all of the animation in three weeks, so as you are reading this the movie should be complete and getting ready for its’ release in November.
Through the clips that I viewed I found that the movie had some amazing characters that your whole family will love. I loved the relationship between Hiro and Baymax, and as you watch further you will continue to root for them and hope that they succeed from beginning to end!
With the fact that my daughter is a HUGE artist, I asked Chris Williams, one of the Directors what he would recommend for a young artist who might want to be able to work in animation in the future. He stated that he would encourage all kids to do what they could to draw Animals. He mentioned that when he was a child he would go to the local zoo and would draw animals. On top of that though he stated that all kids need to be able to become students of Movies and Stories. Finally, he mentioned that you have to find a good college to go to and you have to be willing to work hard and take on any experiences that you can!
All-in-all this together makes a movie that was a great fit for Disney and for Disney fans. You will love this and I am so excited to see the hole movie and share it with my whole family!
