While a lot of us were anticipating a sequel to the hit 2004 animated movie The Incredibles, At the very least, at the past D23 exposition we thought they would announce any news about it. But, the expo came and went. We didn’t get any Incredibles 2 leaks, but we got something just as good.

Disney is creating a 3-D animated movie called Big Hero 6. It will be the studio’s first big budget after acquiring Marvel Comic Company in 2009, and from the ‘first look’ footage provided at the expo, it looks pretty neat.


Here is a short summary of the plot from the comic book, expected to be included in the film:

In the comic books, at least, Hiro and Baymax are recruited by the Japanese government to be part of a highly capable crime fighting team, a plot Disney has so far indicated will largely remain intact as Hiro “finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo, [and so] joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city.” The city, just as it sounds, is a curious combination of Tokyo and San Francisco.

I feel as if a lot of fans are weary, but excited, to see Disney’s take on the comicbooks, as well as bringing more superheros into the 3-D animated world DIsney and like companies have spear headed into the industry.
