Leave it to Disney to capitalize on it’s acquisition of MARVEL for billions six years ago, by bringing to the BIG SCREEN a BIG TEAM originally formulated in Marvel Comics – but the names have been changed to protect the innocent – and that just happens to include an adorable marshmallow-man looking robot for good measure, get ready to experience the next Oscar Worthy animated film for 2015 – BIG HERO 6.
Hiro Haymada (voiced by Ryan Potter) is a computer genius lost in where to focus his energies and intelligence after the loss of his parents. When his big brother Tadashi (voiced by Daniel Henney) tries to steer him on the straight and narrow, he introduces him to very own science experiment – Baymax (voiced by Scott Adsit). Hiro never knew about the incredible scientific world his brother lived in at college, or about his truly awesome and quirky friends – GO GO (voiced by Jamie Chung), Honey Lemon (voiced by Genisis Rodriquez), Wasabi (Voiced by Damon Wayans Jr.) and Fred (voiced by T. J. Miller). This band of chemistry nerds & adrenaline junkies make the learning experience see to awesome to pass up, and Hiro is ready to join in on all the fun.
Hiro’s next move must be to get into College, so he sets out to prove exactly how smart he truly is, when tragedy strikes, bringing his world crashing down around him once again.
Just when it seems all is lost, Baymax comes to the rescue, showing Hiro that he still has many things to offer the world – especially now that some madman is trying to take over San Fransokyo – as they form a misfit band of Super hero’s to save everyone and everything they know and love…but can they?
I give BIG HERO 6 an A+: Gone are the days of Ice Princesses – can you feel the thaw? As Walt Disney Animation Studios brings us a film for all the SCIENTIFIC GENIUSES of the WORLD to enjoy – both boys and girls – and as always, they sprinkled this film with a little adult humor and enough superior animation that you will be on the edge of your seat for the entire 108 minutes of it. Also leave it these superior storytellers to bring a tear to your eye with real human drama, and then turn around and make each and every person watching this film feel that there is no reason that they too can’t become the SUPER HERO they have always wanted to be! The story is a must see for every child and adult alike, as each all of the characters are INCREDIBLE – including Baymax – because who doesn’t love a BIG Marshmallow man – remember GHOSTBUSTERS! – And rest assured that BIG HERO 6 is going to touch each and every person who views it, in a BIG WAY as it is definitely the must see movie of the week!
