Big Hero 6 is the newest animated movie by Disney and it’s about a boy prodigy named Hiro Hamada from the fictional futuristic city of San Fransokyo. If you’d like to find out more I’ve included a trailer for the movie below.
I give this movie four and a half stars out of five. I love Disney movies and really wanted Big Hero 6 to not be a disappointment and it totally exceeded my expectations. The entire movie was filled with beautiful graphics and was an emotional roller coaster that had me laughing one moment and crying the next. If you’re just heading out to the theaters now, I would recommend that you see this movie. Though if you’re like me and you don’t have kids and are over twenty, I recommend maybe watching a late night showing where there won’t be a ton of kids in the theater. This movie handles themes such as loss and grief which may be hard for young children to understand and you may get some kids crying loudly in your showing. Bring lots of tissues because this movie combined with Disney’s animated short Feast will have you crying – but in all the best ways.

The only thing I didn’t like about this movie was that the storytelling was a little forced at times. For me the appearance of the bad guy was really predictable and his character was not well developed. The movie gave a very plausible explanation for why the man would do what he did but never explains how he got to the point of trying to kill children. The minor details that bother me as a writer probably won’t detract from other people’s experience of the movie though and that is why I’m only taking off half a star.
The main character Hiro is extremely endearingly awkward and his interactions with the puffy robot Baymax are adorable. Throughout the movie you really fall in love with the characters. And as a bonus for Disney movie lovers there are a ton of Disney Easter eggs to keep an eye out for and a surprise appearance by comic creator Stan Lee.
