Disney “Big Hero 6” opens in theaters everywhere on November 7, 2014. The movie is about a special bond that forms between a robotics prodigy Hiro (voice of Ryan Potter) and plus-sized inflatable robot, Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit). As the duo’s action pack adventure unfolds they discover a mysterious villain hiding in the mist San Fransokyo. Determined to unmask the villain, Hiro and his friends join together to transforms into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6″.
The story line of Big Hero 6 incorporates several different aspects that sets it apart, from other superhero films. I was blessed to sit down with some of the stars of the film at a press junket held at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank California. It was interesting to learn each actor’s point of view on what makes “Big Hero 6” so unique. I would share insert from each interview below. I thought I would share excerpts from the interview.
What makes Big Hero 6 rise above your typical superhero movie?
Difficult topics like revenge, loss, grief and death are balanced really well with comedy and heart. Which Disney does better than anyone else. Where as, Marvel is so great with action and superhero throughout the franchise, there’s a lot of wish fulfillment in this movie. I think even as adults, we think about, what would be our super power? What does it take to become a hero? How do you overcome loss? These are themes that are dealt with here.
Damon Wayans Jr. :
I also love, the idea, that these characters are normal human beings and what makes them Superheroes are their minds. Hiro making all these special suits for his friends. They’re not from a Planet Farkinon or somewhere that gives them their powers and it wasn’t a spider bite. It was just these guys will and their ingenuity combined with their costumes. I really love that its kinda about you’re superhero of your mind, first.
I hope that with this movie will inspire kids, want to be, scientists again. We’re living in a world, where a lot of people are putting their personal life on social media and some kids want to be famous. I hope that with this movie, we can inspire kids to want to be real super heroes with their brains and show they can achieve incredible things by getting an education.
