Disney formally announced a 3D animated film adaptation of Big Hero 6 today to the LA Times. The movie, directed by Don Hall, will focus on Hiro Hamada and his robot companion Baymax and his attempt to stop a criminal plot to destroy the fictional city of San Frantoyko. We first reported on the movie last June.
In an interview with the LA TImes, Hall said he was drawn to the property due to its lack of a continuity obsessed fanbase. The article also quoted Marvel CCO Joe Quesada, who said that the movie is a perfect mesh of Disney and Marvel, stating that "[t]he relationship between Hiro and his robot has a very Disney flavor to it … but it’s combined with these Marvel heroic arcs."
The movie will be released November 7, 2014.
UPDATED: Here's the first footage from the film.
