‘Big Hero 6’ to Open the Tokyo International Film Festival


Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming feature film Big Hero 6 will premiere at this year’s Tokyo International Film Festival held in Tokyo, Japan. It will be the opening film of the festival.

Co-directors Don Hall and Chris Williams said in a prepared statement:

“We are thrilled to premiere ‘Big Hero 6’ at the Tokyo International Film Festival; it is truly an honor to be selected as the opening film. The setting of our film, San Fransokyo, is a fictional, futuristic mash-up of two of our favorite cities in the world – San Francisco and Tokyo and the research we did in Tokyo informed every detail of the film. We look forward to bringing our film to this city that so deeply inspired us.”

The 27th Tokyo Film Festival runs from October 23-31, 2014.
