First look at animated adaptation of Marvel’s Big Hero Six

Big Hero Six

It has been running around the rumour mills for some time, but Disney have now confirmed that they are adapting their own Marvel comic Big Hero 6 via Walt Disney Animation Studios. The computer animated venture will be released on 7 November 2014. We now have two official images and a brief clip showing off the city streets of San Fransokyo.

Directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh), it follows the adventures of Hiro Hamada, a  robotics genius who joins a group of reluctant international superheroes to save the world from certain destruction.

The original team first appeared in Sunfire and Big Hero Six #1 (September 1998), and later had a very short lived series written by comics legend Chris Claremont.
