Disney Animation has put up a sneak preview for the setting of their next animated action comedy, Big Hero 6. With the new Disney era underway, it’s exciting to see what the company is now doing with its new stable of properties (ie. Marvel and Lucasfilms). Big Hero 6 is a superteam in the Marvel Comics universe. The original comics were set in Japan, it revolves around the urges of the Japanese government to create a team of state-sanctioned superheroes for their disposal. As such a top-secret consortium of politicians and business entities known as the Giri is formed to recruit and train potential superhuman operatives for “Big Hero 6”. Some of the heroes include (but not limited to) are Silver Samurai, Sunfire, GoGo Tomago, Honey Lemon, and quite a few others.
The film is scheduled for a November 2014 release, but until then check out the preview below. And sound off on your thoughts as well!
