What's new in the world of Disney?

Hi there,

I figure it is about time to visit the world of Disney animation! Walt Disney Animation Studios continues to be one of the premier contributors of innovative animated videos. Here's a sneak peak of at its newest adventure Big Hero 6, which premieres this November!

Big Hero 6 is an interesting concept for Disney to tackle. Big Hero 6 is a lesser known Marvel comic that is being rebooted for it's November premiere. It's official Disney synopsis states that Big Hero 6 "is an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax, a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada. 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, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. Determined to uncover the mystery Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called Big Hero 6."

Take a look at the trailer below!

When I first saw the trailer I was honestly quite confused. It doesn't feel like the Disney I've come to know and love. I was a tad confused about the characters, and didn't feel any attraction to the main characters. Upon a second viewing of the trailer though. the cuteness began to seep out. I'm interested to see if the character Baynor, the big goofy robot will connect with both child and adult viewers. Based off of the trailer, the artwork and writing seems to skew heavily towards the former. 

An early review from Vanity magazine states that "Displaying a special love for Japanese robotics, screenwriters Robert L. Baird and Daniel Gerson integrate elements of manga, anime and science fiction into the very fabric of the film, but also succumb to the same pitfalls faced by so many other superhero pics: Namely, after establishing its fresh and relatable origin story, the movie gets bogged down with a relatively generic villain's power-hungry schemes." 

We'll see what the public thinks when the movie reviews on November 6th, 2014. 

Until next time,
