It’s been just a few days, but Disney has released more promotional material for ‘Big Hero 6‘ loosely based on the Marvel Comic, based on a young team of geniuses who become high-tech super heroes when a powerful force threatens their city of San Fransokyo.
First, just for fun, here is the foreign Portuguese trailer, which essentially remixes the first US trailers, but does add more footage and we get to see the heroes in action:
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.
The next clip introduces us to the movie’s cast in depth as they all demonstrate their pre-‘BH6’ personalities, aggressive Go Go, as stated in the synopsis, Wasabi is a neat-freak, Honey Lemon is a perky geek girl, and Fred is the ultimate science fan.
Speaking of Fred, here is a longer take on his introduction:
Here we get a somber moment between the two brothers as Tadashi expresses that he’s frustrated that the younger brother doesn’t apply himself enough.
And finally, a comical clip of what happens when your health care robot is low on battery.
This seems like a huge departure from the original ‘BH6’ comic, which featured adult super heroes working for the Japanese government, but they’ve only made a few appearances since their introduction in the 90s. That will probably help, because the movie looks so much better!
Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams and features the voice talents of Ryan Potter (as Hiro Hamada), Scott Adsit (as Baymax), T.J. Miller (as Fred), Jamie Chung (as Go Go Tomago), Genesis Rodriguez (as Honey Lemon), Damon Wayans Jr. (as Wasabi) and Maya Rudolph (as Aunt Cass). The movie arrives in theaters on November 7.
