Posted on July 14, 2014 at 8:07 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


Disney has released a collection of new Big Hero 6 character images.  Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) directed the adaptation of the Marvel comic, which takes place in the high-tech city of San Fransokyo, and tells the story of a robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter) who, with his robot companion Baymax (Scott Adsit) in tow, teams up with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters to save the metropolis from destruction.  That team includes Fred (T.J. Miller), Go Go Tomago (Jamie Chung), Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), and Wasabi (Damon Wayans).The film opens in 3D on November 7th.

Hiro Hamada: Genius inventor whose flight suit allows him to magnetically connect to his robot Baymax, which allows them to team-up in battle.


Baymax: Director Chris Williams says that “there are moments when there’s real emotion that seems to poke through without breaking the rules of Baymax being a robot,” thanks to the voice acting of Adsit, who played the hapless Pete Hornberger in 30 Rock.


Fred: A huge sci-fi and comic-book geek, Fred’s outfit, “Fredzilla”, is an homage to kaiju, and he pilots the suit from behind one of the eyes.


Go Go Tomago: A taciturn, industrial-engineering student who’s initially more adept at fighting crime than her teammates.  Additionally, “She has also developed a bike with magnetic-levitation technology, which Hiro incorporates into her supersuit.”  This allows her to “roll around on these mag-lev discs, and they can detach on a whim and become blades she can throw.”


Honey Lemon: The empathetic, sweet, positive member of the group.  Hall adds that Rodriguez’ voice acting, “brings some of that goofy, slightly geeky but joyful thing to the character.”


Wasabi: A conservative, cautious character who plasma-induced lasers that come out of his arms and cut through anything.

Here’s the official synopsis for Big Hero 6:

“Big Hero 6” features brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, the CG-animated “Big Hero 6” hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 7, 2014.
