Henry Jackman to Score Disney's Big Hero 6

Henry Jackman has worked with Disney before - he scored 2011's Winnie the Pooh, 2012's Wreck-It Ralph and he's just done Captain America: The Winter Soldier for Disney-owned Marvel - and now he's apparently working on the score for Walt Disney Animation Studios' Marvel adaptation, Big Hero 6, says Film Music Reporter!

Top is a new teaser poster for the film, courtesy of Disney story supervisor Paul Briggs; the posters are apparently popping up outside the WDAS building (see also, layout artist Tyler Kupferer's picture). Comedian TJ Miller recently announced that he'd be voicing Fred in the film, a friend of the film's hero Hiro. So we're drip by drip getting more details about Disney's next animated release, and it's good to hear a composer the calibre of Jackman's on board for it.

The film is "an action comedy adventure," which follows "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." Check out the extra plot and character details that Rotoscopers unveiled back in September here.

Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) and hits cinemas on 7th November in the US. In the UK? Not so much...
