Pixar has lost one of its most talented screenwriters. Daniel Gerson, who co-wrote both Big Hero 6 and the Monsters Inc. movies, passed away this weekend after a battle with brain cancer. He was 49.
Despite being completely vulnerable to attacks from safety pins, the Baymax robot from last year's Big Hero 6 was just about the best sidekick a kid could have—mostly because it was skilled at treating skinned knees and other injuries. This LED lamp version of Baymax isn't quite as talented, but it can ensure a kid…
We adored Disney's Big Hero 6. And now we have an exclusive look at all the secret little details hiding in plain sight inside the heroic film starring Baymax.
We found out a while back that, in an earlier version of Big Hero 6, the Hamada brothers put rocket boots on their cat, Mochi, transforming him into ROCKET CAT. Now, thanks to a deleted scene from the film, we can finally see Rocket Cat in action.
The animators behind Big Hero 6 hid a few Easter eggs from other Disney films in San Fransokyo, including a few from Frozen. See how Olaf the Snowman and Prince Hans found their way into Big Hero 6.
The image of Baymax's pudgy form busting out of his armour suit was one of the first we saw of Big Hero 6 - and now it's formed the basis of this neat bit of 3D printing.
CGI is wonderful and I love it when excellent animators use it for their films but there's something about the ol' trusty pen and pencil way of hand drawing (even if it's not done with a pen and pencil) that always makes me smile. It's like doing things simpler is sometimes better.
Not all of the concept designs for Big Hero 6's superhero costume designs were as bright and colorful as what we saw in the final film. In fact, some of the suggestions from the design team were heavy on the black and earth tones—and one put Honey Lemon in cat ears.
While most promos for movies use footage from the actual film, this Japanese promo for Big Hero 6 takes a different tack, using hand-drawn animation to highlight the emotional relationships at the center of the film. After watching this, I need a big Baymax hug.
In one iteration of Big Hero 6's story had Baymax battling (or perhaps failing to battle) a wrestler while a crowd of gangsters looked on. This concept art by Ryan Lang shows what could have been. Check out more alternative and developmental Big Hero 6 art below.
As you probably already know, before it was a great Disney movie, Big Hero 6 was a Marvel Comics property. What you might not know is just how radically different the characters first looked like when they débuted in 1998 - and now the team's creators are revealing their original concept sketches for the first time.
This would make more sense if Eve wasn't far less amiable than Baymax. She must take after her mother more than her father. On the other hand, they both are outfitted with weaponry that is out of place with their original functions.
The new movie Big Hero 6 represents the first-ever partnership between Marvel and Disney, two entities known for constructing fantastical universes. So it's not surprising that bringing the story to film also required building an entire city of the future: a blend of Tokyo and San Francisco named San Fransokyo.
Big Hero 6 went through a number of changes before becoming the superhero movie we've fallen in love with. And one of the things that was ultimately cut from the film was Hiro building a set of rocket boots for his cat, Mochi.
Big Hero 6 is on track to rake in a little over $56-million this weekend, edging out Interstellar for the top spot at the U.S. box office.
Disney's new film, Big Hero 6, is a celebration of science and the joy of innovation. In the guise of a superhero origin story, it tells a smart, inventive tale about young science geeks who grapple with issues around the responsible use of technology. It's one of the best science-fiction films in ages. Minor spoilers…
Big Hero 6 hits cinemas this weekend, and is practically guaranteed to have people gushing over Baymax in all forms. Why not get ahead of the curve and celebrate with Caramel Apples that look just like him? Adorable.
Big Hero 6 is Disney and Marvel's new robot adventure that takes place against the backdrop of the fictional San Fransokyo. It's a huge and beautiful new world, and although the plot isn't perfect, the movie is worth seeing for the robots, the city alone, and the jokes alone.
This week, Disney gives us its version of a superhero movie with Big Hero 6. We've got all the details on the huggable healthcare robot Baymax and the mashup city of San Fransokyo, plus how anime, Disneyland park mascots, and Clint Eastwood inspired the film.
