Fortunately, the film appears to be living up to the hype with lots of positive early buzz, and some entertaining, impressive preview footage of the superhero story. Big Hero 6 is aimed at all ages.
The latest batch of sneak peek clips feature brief introductions to the members of the young superhero team. To this point, they haven’t appeared prominently in the trailers.
Based on a Marvel Comics series that debuted in the ’90s, Big Hero 6 follows a brilliant young inventor named Hiro who gets caught up in a mysterious super-villain’s plot to destroy the futuristic city of San Fransokyo.
He’s assisted in his mission to thwart the villain by his robot pal Baymax, and a group of other young engineers and science prodigies. They develop powerful, tech-powered suits to become their city’s new superheroes.
The quartet of new clips released by Disney features the first meeting between Hiro (voiced by Ryan Potter), Go-Go (Jamie Chung), Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.), Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), and Fred, a “science enthusiast” (T.J. Miller).
Big Hero 6 hits theaters November 7.
