Big Hero 6 – Big fun for everyone!
Walt Disney Animation Studios’s has a system, Denizen, that was used in Big Hero 6 to create bigger and more believable crowds. In Frozen, 270 unique characters were created, in Wreck-It Ralph it was 185 and 80 for Tangled. In Big Hero 6, they created 670 unique characters and each one of them has up to 32 different clothing look combinations, plus 32 different hair and skin which means 686,080 unique characters before there were any exact repeats! The employees were encouraged to create themselves in the system, and so, over 200 characters were created based on the employees, and you will see them in the movie.
Should I see it?
If you want to watch something light, but still has a great story, this is a family movie that will please everyone.

A group of genius friends and an inflatable robot team up to bring down the villain that terrorize the city.
Big Hero 6 takes place in the town of San Fransokyo and follows the life of Hiro Hamada, a young man with a brilliant mind that needs a little push to use it to its full capacities. After an unfortunate turn of event, Hiro teams up with friends that each created a genius technological product and creates a team of super-tech heroes to get revenge over the villain.
Like every Disney movie, the principal character will need to overcome obstacles to become who he was meant to be in the end. And this is what I love about animation movies, it shows us that what is easy is not always what is right and there is always lessons to learn from these movies, no matter what’s your age. Some parents will particularly like all the little securities facts that their children will learn during the movie. The script is well written, light and giving us many moments of laughter. Great thing is the jokes are not only for kids, there is even some that the kids won’t understand but the adults will, so it really is a movie for everyone. Two of the three co-writers worked together many times before for Disney (Monster Inc, Cars) and it shows with the quality of the script they delivered us.
No singing in this Disney movie, a fact that many parents will love! A very wise choice as it wouldn’t have fit well in the movie. Like always the graphics are amazing with precise details that are remarkably well done. As much as I have some reserve concerning the 3D technology, I think it was well executed, and worth paying for in my opinion. One of the strong point of the movie? Baymax, the big inflatable white robot, who is so lovable that it makes you want to have one in your home! It is fascinating how with a great story they can achieve to make us have emotions over a big white robot.
For a first Disney/Marvel animation movie, Big Hero 6 is a really great start and with the success it has, I have no doubt there will be many more movies like this in the future.
Don’t come at the last minute before the movie starts, there’s a short movie before the principal presentation that is more than worth seeing, you won’t regret it.
