Watch: New Big Hero 6 Trailer Focuses on the Characters

The second full-length trailer for Disney's Big Hero 6 is remarkable for a number of reasons. One such reason is that - in what's an extremely rare move for a trailer for a Hollywood film of this size - it actually focuses on the characters, rather than just a bunch of big action set pieces. Another reasons is that it's really, really good.

Now, all this isn't to say the new trailer is bereft of action (there is in fact a healthy dose of awesome flight and fight sequences towards the end), but front and centre is the heart-warming relationship between pint-sized boy genius Hiro and his robot pal Baymax. We also get much more of a look at the rest of the titular 6 in this trailer too. Fred (voiced by Silicon Valley's T.J. Miller) is particularly hilarious. And the song choice is top-notch.

Check the new Big Hero 6 trailer out below:

Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, stars the voices of Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Damon Wayans, Jr., Jamie Chung, Maya Rudolph and Alan Tudyk (bet he's the villain...), and opens on 7th November (US)/30th January, 2015 (UK). It'll be preceded in cinemas by the short film Feast (more on that here).

Also, you may notice Baymax, along with a few others (I am Groot!), is now in our logo at the top. This awesome redesign is once again courtesy of our resident Tintin-lover and logo-maker, Damien. Thanks to him, and we hope you enjoy it!

  1. Looks like another winner for Disney. They are on a roll.

    Too bad they aren't betting on the European audience wanting to see it (terrible release dates) - they are probably going to lose some money there. But hey ! 'Frozen' was only the biggest hit in French theaters last year and was released in early December, so I must be wrong.

    I'm sure the 'clever' thinking behind this is "Big Hero 6 is a mix between American and Japanese culture. Certainly it won't appeal to Europeans."
    You know what appeals to Europeans, Disney ? Nay, what appeals to audiences ? A good movie. If you think you have one, release it when it will hit big. Not when it will be overlooked as a non-event. Gah.

    But yeah, great trailer. Man I'm excited ! FEBRUARY 11TH !!! HYPED !

    PS : You're welcome William :)
    PS2 : Sorry about my diehard habit of putting spaces before the ?, ! and : - it's just the official French way, and I think it looks prettier.
