A New Big Hero 6 Teaser Boots Up
Visit Sanfransokyo to meet Disney's robotics prodigy

Having teased us with a snippet of gorgeous scene-setting footage, and, earlier, this week, some new stills, Disney’s animation team is finally ready to reveal more from its take on the Marvel universe, Big Hero 6. The first teaser trailer has landed and it is adorable.

Don’t go expecting Tony Stark or Steve Rogers to show up in this one: while it’s inspired by the Marvel title of the same name, the movie is its own beast, unhitched from the comic book company's cinematic incarnation.

“The universe we’re creating is not tied to the Marvel Universe,” co-director Don Hall told Yahoo earlier this week. “There’s no Iron Man or anybody like that. It’s a world of our own design.”

So who will we eventually meet in this new world? The teaser trailer at least introduces us to teenage robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who is intent on turning his slightly bulky techno pal Baymax into a superhero. They’ll soon join up with a group of crime fighters to tackle a criminal gang, and future promos will showcase the likes of Fredzilla, a man able to turn himself into a Godzilla-style lizard, as well as Go Go Tomago, AKA a young woman named Leiko Tanaka who uses a power suit to battle enemies.

Big Hero 6 promises to be a colourful romp, focused on the Disney-appropriate bond between and boy and his ‘bot, all set against a futuristic city and some decidedly deadly threats. Hall is working with Bolt’s Chris Williams to oversee a voice cast that includes Josh Hutcherson, Freddie Highmore, Samuel L. Jackson (not as Nick Fury, we figure), T.J. Miller, Maya Rudolph and Jamie Chung. Disappointingly, while America will see the film on November 7, we have to wait until January 30, 2015.

Derivative or just damn funny?
The trailer made me laugh out loud, but it seems a little derivative. Then again, the first Incredibles trailer wasn't even used in the movie, and look how that turned out. More
