Monday saw the release of the full cast list for Disney’s animated “Big Hero 6,” and today, the studio has debuted the first full trailer for the film based on the relatively obscure Marvel Comics team.
Maintaining its focus on Hiro and Baymax, the trailer showcases the movie’s balance of humor and action while introducing the rest of the team, albeit in their civilian identities. It also introduces the story’s kabuki-masked villain and his army of telepathically-controlled micro-bots, and gives moviegoers a sense of what it’s like to live in the city of San Fransokyo.
The film, which arrives in theaters November 7, features Ryan Potter as Hiro Hamada; Scott Adsit as Baymax; T.J. Miller as Fred; Jamie Chung as Go Go Tomago; Damon Wayans Jr. as Wasabi; Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon; Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass; James Cromwell as Professor Callaghan; Alan Tudyk as Alistair Krei; and Daniel Henney as Tadashi Hamada.
Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, “Big Hero 6” is based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name, created by Men of Action Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau. The film is scheduled to debut Nov. 7, and centers on robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and his robot friend Baymax as they join forces with a team of new crime fighters to save the futuristic city of San Fransokyo (a hybrid San Francisco and Tokyo) from a criminal plot.
