Big Hero 6

It's time to meet Hiro Hamada and his adorable robot friend Baymax in the first cute trailer for Disney & Marvel's first animated collaboration, Big Hero 6. There's no indication of the story or voice cast, but we do get a hint of what this young robotics prodigy wants to do with his chubby, squishy robot as he's trying to fit him into some heroic armor. However, all the robot seems to want is the soccer ball. It's hard to get a vibe of the entire film since we don't see any of the other crime fighters that Hiro aspires to join with Baymax, but the teaser trailer is amusing. We're definitely looking forward to seeing more. Watch the trailer below!

Here's the first trailer for Marvel & Disney's Big Hero 6, straight from Yahoo:

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.

February 2015? Is that an international release date? Because last I hear this was scheduled for November of 2014...

Chris Groves on May 22, 2014


Yeah, the trailer is from the Disney UK YouTube, and it sounds like they get it later than we do.

Ethan Anderton on May 22, 2014


Ahh I see. That makes sense.

Chris Groves on May 22, 2014


That looks great; there's definitely a Pixar vibe in there. I wonder why nowhere in the trailer does it say "Marvel"?

Perhaps they want to avoid any thoughts about this being associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe? It is bad enough that Sony and Fox get to use the Marvel(not 'Marvel Studios') logo on their non MCU properties. They seem like they would rather hinge this on the goodwill generated for Disney Animation by films like Wreck it Ralph and Frozen.

Chris Groves on May 22, 2014


I hear you. It's weird though. I'd think they'd want to attract all the Marvel fanboys who wouldn't otherwise go see a Disney movie.

TheOct8pus on May 22, 2014


Yeah, maybe things will change during future promotional material? I can see reasoning for either way.

Chris Groves on May 22, 2014


Here's what they'll do probably: They'll give everybody a few teasers, hype the movie up, and then, once there's considerable buzz, and they have most of the film made, they'll release a full length trailer with Marvel all over it. All the people who didn't know it was Marvel will go "OMG! It's Marvel!" and all the Marvel fanboys will have a collective nerdgasm. This will result in the ultimate hypestorm and the theaters will be filled with families and nerdy men. I predict a huge opening.

Makes sense. It is in a strange position though, this and Interstellar are opening on the same weekend. They are going after different audiences, but I would definitely see Interstellar over this. I wonder if there will be any cannibalization because of that? I think it might benefit this film if they moved it back a week or so, and have it open around the time Frozen did.

This character does NOT look Asian. WTF?!

Aang on May 22, 2014


That's what I thought as well, but they could have given him him thick horned-rimmed glasses, pig tail and really slanted eyes just to say "Asian!", so I won't complain too much since Disney is trying to add more diversity for a change.

Diversity in the form of a white guy with an Asian name. BAHAHAHA go back to your cave.

Bruce Lee on May 23, 2014


I believe he's supposed to have kind of a non-distinct look. He lives in "San Fransokyo"...which is an amalgam of San Francisco and Tokyo.

Chris Groves on May 22, 2014


All the robot sounds were taken from the Pixar Animation Studios tag.

DAVIDPD on May 22, 2014


I didn't want to see Frozen based on their teaser but saw it and rather enjoyed it, so I will not make the same assumption as before.

mooreworthy on May 22, 2014


Robots involved? I'm there.
