Ever since getting a first look at San Fransokyo, we've been waiting to see more of Walt Disney Animation and Marvel's first animated big screen collaboration Big Hero 6. With the release of the first trailer coming on Thursday, the first images from the film have finally arrived, giving us a first look at the young robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and his best friend, a robot named Baymax. So far we only know that T.J. Miller, Maya Rudolph and Jamie Chung are providing voices, so hopefully the first trailer will reveal the rest of the cast. Either way, seeing the first animated Marvel comic adaptation on the big screen has us excited.
Here's the first photos from Don Hall & Chris Williams' Big Hero 6 straight from Disney:
Big Hero 6 is co-directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) with a script that Jordan Roberts (3,2,1...Frankie Go Boom) co-wrote with the former. Based on the comic book series of the same name, the film marks the first collaboration between Walt Disney Animation Studios and Marvel. The story follows 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. Disney releases the animated film everywhere this fall on November 7th.
