Big Hero 6 is Disney’s new 54th film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, with a huge significant change from the Marvel Comic it was adapted from.

The movie had a mix of both Disney elements and Marvel's. Thanks to screenplay by Robert L. Baird, Dan Gerson and Jordan Roberts, the movie had the Disney feel of happy, loveable story with characters you can relate to and understand, with Marvel's action theme and characters with complexes in their behavior.

Produced solely by Walt Disney Animation Studios, this wonderful family movie will both interest and captivate your mind. Disney didn’t miss their trademark of having lessons here and there for the viewer to pick up on, and they removed anything that will make the story similar to anything we have seen before.

The movie plot is about 14 year old Hiro Hamada, who lives with his aunt and older brother Tadashi in futuristic San Fransokyo. Hiro is highly intelligent and he loves, participating in illegal Bot fights, much to the dismay of his brother and aunt.

Trying to distract Hiro from such a life his brother Tadashi, introduces Hiro to his friends GoGo, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, and Fred. He also showed him Baymax, a personal healthcare robot Tadashi created, Tadahi and his friends attended Krei Tech and Tadashi was hoping the inventions that Hiro saw at Krei Tech will urge him to want to join. Tadashi succeeded, but his untimely death when the college mysteriously caught on fire halted Hiro’s interest in joining Krei Tech.

Hiro sad and alone activated Baymax by error, which then stumbled on one of Hiro’s inventions which was trying to reunite with its other parts, Baymax traced the invention to its source and exposed more about the death of Tadashi.

Some of the notable changes that Disney made, is making Baymax a product of Hiro’s brother Tadashi, while in the comics, Baymax is a monster (instead of the loveable and huggable robot that Disney presented) created by Hiro as a science project to serve as his butler and body guard.
Also in the comics it was Hiro’s father who died, while in this movie it was Hiro’s brothers’ death that inspired the formation of the group, his father was not mentioned in the movie.

Although the movie is great and the characterization memorable, I do hope many will appreciate the level of storytelling and fast paced action that this movie packs. It will be sad if this movie ends up to be one of those brilliant movies that didn’t get enough credit or celebration.
