Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 54th animated motion picture Big Hero 6 is now available on all major digital download platforms. I got a copy on iTunes and watched the film and the bonus features using the Disney Movies Anywhere app on my iPhone 5S. I’m happy to report that the film is still just as great on the small screen as it was on the big screen (my original review is here) and the bonus features, although a bit sparse, are beautifully produced, entertaining, and informational.
Big Hero 6, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 54th animated motion picture, is an action-packed mashup of animated sci-fi movie going goodness. Combining a comic book/manga sensibility with some of the best action sequences ever in an animated movie along with tremendous authenticity and heart-felt emotion, the film delivers on all fronts.
The Walt Disney Studios, which was conspicuously absent from San Diego Comic-Con this summer, is going to be presenting at New York Comic Con this year instead. On the schedule for Thursday, October 9th is a presentation which will highlight two upcoming films: Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new feature Big Hero 6 and Disney’s live-action sci-fi pic Tomorrowland.
At the ‘Art of Big Hero 6‘ panel held recently at San Diego Comic-Con, new footage from the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios film was shown to the enthusiastic crowd in attendance. It was also confirmed during the presentation that 2D animation is truly not dead at Disney.
A new trailer has been released for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Big Hero 6 in Japan. It has a more serious tone than the U.S. trailer, but ultimately is a bit of a hybrid from what Disney has released in the U.S. (Although some are claiming “spoiler alert,” if you’ve been following the film’s progress since last year’s D23 Expo, you’ll know that the stuff revealed in the Japanese trailer was already spilled by co-director Don Hall last year).
