I have seen some adorable movies in my day, but “Big Hero Six” is by far the cutest movie I’ve seen in a very long time. This Walt Disney Animation Studios film is the first Disney animation to feature Marvel characters as it is based on the Marvel comic of the same name.
The story is set in a futuristic city called San Fransokyo where a 14-year-old boy named Hiro Hamada lives with his older brother and their aunt. The story centers around Hiro, who is a robotics genius, as he and his friends transform themselves into superheroes along with the help of Baymax, a robot that was created by Hiro’s older brother Tadashi.
Before seeing this movie, I figured it would just be another silly children’s movie. Although I still wanted to see it, I didn’t think it would be anything special. Boy, was I wrong. This movie is one of the most adorable, heart-breaking, funny, and beautiful movies that I’ve ever seen. I easily became attached to the characters because of their sweet and funny personalities. Along with the characters, the plot was very interesting and heart-wrenching. The whole movie kept me on the edge of my seat while also featuring the perfect mixture of cute moments and comedic relief.
Not only were the characters and the plot entertaining, the animation was beautiful. Of course, we all know that Disney does a great job with animation – movies like Tangled and Frozen are excellent examples of this – but this movie was, in my opinion, one of the best works of animation I’ve ever seen in a Disney film. Along with the animation, the music and setting were beautiful as well. The soundtrack to the film was very well chosen and fit perfectly with the events of the film. The setting of the movie was one of my favorite aspects of Big Hero 6 as the story is set in a city that is a mixture of American and Japanese cultures – hence the name San Fransokyo. This was very well represented with the mixture of Japanese and American characters, languages, and cultural aspects of the film.
A: Big Hero 6 is one of the best Disney films I’ve seen in a while. It had the perfect mixture of action, comedy, tragedy, and suspense which helped to create a perfect film for both children and adults to enjoy equally. However, if you are planning to see this movie, you might want to bring tissues with you, it’s a bit of a tear-jerker (or at least, it is for me.)
