Disney Announces First Animated Marvel Film

Big Hero 6When Disney first acquired Marvel Comics in 2009, there was a lot of speculation if the company so synonymous over the years with feature film animation would ever produce an animated film based on a Marvel property.  The answer was announced today.


Disney will be producing a CG animated version of Marvel’s Big Hero 6 that will arrive in November 2014.

Here’s the official logline:

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Big Hero 6, an action comedy adventure about 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 November 7, 2014.
