Big Hero 6 [2014 Animated Disney Film]

While not yet officially announced by Disney themselves, it has been recently revealed this past February that Walt Disney Animation Studios is doing a theatrical animated film adaptation of Marvel's obscure hero group the Big Hero 6 in an attempt to bring them into public view.


Who are the Big Hero 6? They're a team of six Japanese mutants who work for the Japanese government and some of them have ties to the X-Men. They are as follows:

Sunfire (Shiro Yoshida) - A mutant who can fly and fights using plasma generated from his body. His design is inspired by 80's-era shounen manga protagonists.

Silver Samurai (Kenuichio Harada) - A mutant who can charge his sword with energy to slice through practically anything. He is based around traditional samurai armor and weapons.

GoGo Tamago (Leiko Tanaka) - A mutant who has the ability to change her body into a ball of energy and hurl herself at high speeds. She is inspired from super sentai heroes.

Honey Lemon (Aiko Miyazaki) - A mutant who possesses a purse than has an infinite amount of space inside it. Her design was inspired from Cutey Honey, a superhero-like magical girl.

Hiro Takachio - A young 13 year old mutant who possesses intelligence on the level of some of the greatest minds in the world. Looks just like a normal human boy.

Baymax - A robotic creation of Hiro's that acts as a father-figure and bodyguard to him. He is inspired by mecha robots and has the ability to transform into a dragon-like appearance.


No footage ore further details are currently available at this time, but the film will debut in theatres November 2014.

----------------------------

Disney's starting to utilize that Marvel licence eh? Now that their animation studio is doing a movie with Marvel's characters. Oh well, I'm not complaining.~

The interesting thing I find is that all 6 are Japanese heroes. It gives me a feeling it may do something Teen Titans-esque with the animation.

The film's existence has been officially confirmed and the release date for theatres is November 7th, 2014. Here's a slight introductory synopsis of the concept:

Quote:
Set in a fictional metropolis called San Fransokyo (a portmanteau inspired by San Francisco and Tokyo), Big Hero 6 will be centered on a young prodigy named Hiro Hamada and his self-created robot Baymax, both of whom uncover a criminal plot and must join a team of inexperienced crime fighters.
And also, a 30 second clip of some of the city to be featured in the movie "San Fransokyo":

It's CG animation, but oh well. Still looks impressive. As to be expected from Disney.~

I support helping obscure heroes get some help.

I had lost faith in that when DC butchered Cassandra Cain than tossed her under the rug but this has at least renewed my faith in Marvel for doing this. DC? Still not happy over their treatment of Cassandra.

It looks nothing like Japan. As usual.
It looks like one of those generic "Asian supermix town" featured prominently in so many western works lol

It's supposed to be San Francisco + Tokyo
But in reality it looks like San Francisco + Hong Kong from Giant Robo.
