After much speculation, we finally have confirmation as to what Disney's first animated Marvel movie will be. It's not what you might expect. While there have been rumors, according to the LA Times, BIG HERO 6 will get the animated movie treatment.
The movie will be set in Japan and is described as an 'action-comedy' about a 'team of state-sanctioned superheroes.' Marvel was acquired by Disney in 2009 and this marks the first partnership between the two companies.
On Disney Animation's YouTube channel, the following clip was released:
The movie will feature CG-animation. Disney Animation Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter was pitched the idea for Big Hero 6 with a story containing 'Disney-friendly elements - a child hero, humor and a distinctive tone that played well with the animation studio's many Japanophiles."
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Big Hero 6,” an action comedy adventure about brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, the CG-animated “Big Hero 6” hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.
The question is, how many of you read the actual comic?
