Disney’s Big Hero 6 Concept Art Explored

With just a few months left before Disney’s next animated feature hits the cinemas, it’s time we start paying closer attention to the world created for Big Hero 6.

Animation World Network was given access to some early concept art for the movie and was able to talk with Don Hall, co-director of the film, about the movie and the comic book it was based on.

“I was encouraged to explore the Marvel universe,” explained Hall, “and one of the projects I found was called ‘Big Hero 6.’ I’d never heard of it, but I liked the title and its Japanese influences — it just sounded cool.” Disney encouraged the filmmakers to take the existing property and make it their own. “We thought about sticking more closely to the source material,” he added, “but the idea of creating our own world was far too enticing.”

Disney rolls out first trailer for Marvel’s Big Hero 6

BIG HERO 6

We’ve been teased, we’ve been smothered in cute, and we’ve been introduced to the main characters of the movie, now it’s time for Disney marketing to let loose the hounds and really start promoting their next animated feature “Big Hero 6,” which is inspired by a Marvel Comic of the same name.

Released today is the first big trailer for the movie. In it, we get our first look at the movie’s villain – Yokai and a hint of the action that brings the friends together to try and save the day. Plus more Baymax, who is on pace to steal the show with cuteness.

I like that the movie doesn’t have that comic book style, nor does it really have a style that resembles any previous Disney animated feature. It’s kind of a cross between Miyazaki, Chris Sanders (Lilo and Stitch) with a small dose of Pixar thrown in (especially on the secondary characters).

We also have our first easter egg. Look on the back wall behind the police officer right around minute 1:15 in the trailer for a glimpse of a familiar face. Can’t see it? The answer is below the jump
