The story of Big Hero 6 tells the tale of Hiro (Ryan Potter): a scientific prodigy. After his older brother, Tadashi, is killed in an accident, Hiro finds a friend in the form of Baymax (Scott Adsit); a robot created by Tadashi. Hiro and Baymax find themselves in trouble when they discover a masked man using Hiro's nanobots for his own sinister purpose. To stop this supervillain, the duo are joined by Tadashi's friends and, through the brilliance of Hiro, the six become high tech heroes.
The animation to Big Hero 6 was amazing; and given Disney's recent track record, that is saying something. The details in the animation were fantastic as it capture the futuristic design of San Fransokyo and gave a lot of definition to the film's characters. The movie's animation also provided several beautiful shots as well as intense sequences that got my heart pounding. The film's second strongest element was its humor. Big Hero 6 had a lot funny moments for the whole family. The best moments, in my opinion, were the more subtle bits; such as the characters' reactions and the movie's witty dialogue. To put it simply, both the humor and animation provided the right tone as they gave Big Hero 6 a sense of individuality in its genres.
Big Hero 6 may not be the best animated movie of the year, but it is indeed among the best. The film has a simple but effective origin story; as well as characters that you can get behind. If any thing, Big Hero 6 gives Walt Disney Animation something different and hopefully this will not be the last time we see this team on the silver screen.
