Last year, I set a simple, clear, well-defined goal—get invited to a screening of Big Hero 6 at Walt Disney Animation Studios. It was a goal that I wanted ardently and one that I etched into my psyche. I mean, I even wrote it down (because “a goal not written is only a wish,” true?). I figured that if mommy bloggers and other fan sites could get invited to a day at the vaulted Disney Studio lot, why not Animation Fascination and why not for this film?
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.
On November 19, 1994, Spider-Man: The Animated Series made its debut on the Fox Kids programming block on the Fox television network. Created by Marvel Films Animation and animated by Tokyo Movie Shinsha, the popular show ran for five seasons and has been a perennial favorite for animation and comic book fans alike.
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.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has dropped a new trailer today for Big Hero 6 and it’s epic.
In this episode the man, the myth, the legend himself, Greg Weisman, joins Tom Fonss and Marc Vibbert.
Weisman’s Shakespearian background, the origins of Gargoyles (and it’s twentieth anniversary), hopes for the possible futures of both The Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice, as well as voice acting on Star Wars: Rebels are all spoken of. Plus so much more…
Also Discussed: Doctor Who and Transformers – Beast Machines reviews, Donald Glover as Miles Morales/Spider-Man, Daffy Duck’s Quackbusters, and a flying Baymax.
