Despite the films Marvel heritage, don't go expecting Tony Stark or Steve Rogers to show up in this one: while it's inspired by the Marvel title of the same name, the movie is its own beast, unhitched from the comic book company's cinematic incarnation.
"The universe we're creating is not tied to the Marvel Universe," Hall told Yahoo earlier this week. "There's no Iron Man or anybody like that. It's a world of our own design."
So who will we eventually meet in this new world? The teaser trailer at least introduces us to teenage robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who is intent on turning his slightly bulky techno pal Baymax into a superhero. They'll soon join up with a group of crime fighters to tackle a criminal gang, and future promos will showcase the likes of Fredzilla, a man able to turn himself into a Godzilla style lizard, as well as Go Go Tomago, also known as a young woman named Leiko Tanaka who uses a power suit to battle enemies.
Big Hero 6 promises to be a colourful romp, focused on the Disney appropriate bond between and boy and his robot, all set against a futuristic city and some decidedly deadly threats. The film features a voice cast that includes Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Freddie Highmore (Bates Motel), Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained), T.J. Miller (Coverfield), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) and Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch). Disappointingly, while America will see the film on 7 November, we have to wait until 30 January 2015.
