In preparation for "Big Hero 6's" debut in Japan, Disney has teamed with comedian Tekken for a flip-book-style anime short that serves as an introduction to the film's major players. Set to the song "Story" by Japanese pop star AI, the music video promo runs through Hiro's origin story, as he loses his brother Tadashi and gains a puffy heathcare robot named Baymax. The robot then helps Hiro grieve in the video, giving him flowers and lollipops in an attempt to cheer him up.
"Big Hero 6" has already cheered up audiences in the United States, where it opened at the top of the box office after grossing $56.2 million in its opening weekend. The film fell to second place the following weekend thanks to the dimwitted might of "Dumb and Dumber To." "Big Hero 6" still added another $36 million to its domestic total over the weekend, bringing the film's earnings to $111.6 million.
