We Can Be Heroes

Big Hero 6 is Disney’s first foray into mining Marvel properties for all ages movie content, and today’s first glimpse at it shows us 14-year-old Hiro Hamada and his adorably squishy nurse robot buddy Baymax. If only his totorobot (yes I just made that up) was just a little more badass. Hiro and Baymax aren’t the only stars of the film: it’ll take four more to get to the titular six, and directors Don Hall and Chris Williams promise that two of those characters will be female (perhaps based on GoGo Tomago, Honey Lemon, or Sunpyre). Furthermore, they’re up front and open about how their superhero movie isn’t just for little boys: “It would be very easy for this movie to be seen as a boys’ movie, just like it would have been very easy for Frozen to be perceived as a girls’ movie,” says Hall. “But I think you don’t make over a billion dollars by having it just skewed to one thing.”
