With all the Marvel news coming out this week, you’d think that San Diego Comic-Con had started already. All before Hall H opens it’s doors, we’ve gotten a wide variety of news regarding Marvel’s comics, their live action cinematic universe, and their upcoming animated collaboration with Walt Disney Animation Studios called ‘Big Hero 6’. But the week isn’t over yet, so of course there’s even more Marvel news coming your way right now.
Earlier this week, the world was introduced to the voice cast of the next film from the studio that brought us ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ and ‘Frozen’. Then, the first full-length trailer was released giving us a glimpse of the team in action and their kabuki-masked villain. Now, another trailer has made it’s way online all the way from the Land of the Rising Sun and you can check it out below followed by the official synopsis:
With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.
A few things are noticeably different than the English trailer. For starters, we can see from this trailer that this movie follows the Disney trope of a death propelling the main character into action. I don’t speak Japanese, so I couldn’t tell you who the funeral is for at the beginning of the video, but I’m going to assume that it’s Hiro’s brother based on the video that he’s watching later. Next, we get a decent amount of new footage in this trailer. Rather than showing the scene in the police station, instead we get what is presumably the first time Hiro and Baymax meet. From there we get the same upgrade sequence we’ve been seeing, but there’s enough here to warrant a watch. Finally, It sounds like the movie is just being labeled as ‘Baymax’ in Japan. Part of me wonders why that is, but then another part of me finds it adorable because of how lovable Baymax is already. Despite all the marketing and merchandising surrounding the healthcare robot, there are other members of the team. However, none of them are as cute as Baymax yet.
What do you think about the international trailer for ‘Big Hero 6’? Are you prepared for another Disney movie with a funeral at the beginning? Do you have any theories about who Hiro may have lost? Share your guesses in the comments below.
