DISNEY Preps New Animated Movie Based On Marvel's Comic Book BIG HERO 6
On 10 May 2013
Marvel comics have been an inspiration for every production company and now, Disney Animation Studios are taking advantage of it.
The less-known crime fighter “Big Hero 6” will become a CG-animated movie directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and it is set to be released in 2014. The movie will follow Hiro Hamada –the robot – and his friend Bay Max who join the superhero team called San Fransokyo.

The Marvel comic book was originally created by Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau in 1998. The action is placed in a Tokyo town which has a San Francisco vibe and explores the Japanese culture.
“Marvel properties take place in the real world,” Hall said. “We were looking for something to do where we could make our own world — bring in the Japanese influences, have recognizable landmarks mashed up with a Japanese aesthetic”.
We hope that Disney will keep the original characters like the samurai, the monster born from a child’s drawings and also the Power Purse.
“I was looking for something on the obscure side, something that would mesh well with what we do,” Hall said. “The idea of a kid and a robot story with a strong brother element, it’s very Disney.”

Marvel Chief Creative Officer, Joe Quesada is also participating in the project. “Don was a huge fan of Marvel. He understood what we did. I didn't have to explain our world to him. The relationship between Hiro and his robot has a very Disney flavor to it … but it’s combined with these Marvel heroic arcs.”Quesada said of Hall.
Disney also revealed the first video for the upcoming animated movie
