I had heard of Big Hero 6 sometime in 2014 or maybe in 2013. I was about half-excited, I somewhat thought Pixar was making the movie but it was actually Disney's other animation studio that made Frozen too. I thought I would like it, but I didn't know I would love it!
The film begins with Hiro Hamada, and his older brother Tadashi. Both are extremly smart, as the young Hiro graduated high-school very early. His brother goes to a special robotics college, and he shows his brother his invention Baymax which is a robot that serves a doctor-like role. Hiro wants to go to this school too, but must make an invention to wow the professor. Which he does through many micro-bots that can be controlled by mere thought.
However a mysterious villain takes the design of Hiro's mini-bots and uses it for his own purposes. He tries to destroy both Hiro and Baymax when they discover his factory, but they manage to escape. Knowing he must be stopped, he decides to turn Baymax into a super-hero.
I was a bit shocked to learn this was based on a Marvel comic that (from what I've seen) is much different than the movie version. It doesn't really matter to me, because at the end I had been wowed so much. Baymax is one of the best Disney characters they've come up with in a long time. I haven't had an animated movie impress me so much since the first How To Train Your Dragon movie. The only bad thing I can say is that I easily figured out the identity of the villain, and the fate of one of the main characters before it was revealed in the movie.
