Although it is based on a Marvel comic of the same name, there are lots of changes to the names, the setting, the ethnicities of characters, the back stories, and several plot points. See more »
When we see Hiro's room for the first time, we can see 2 figures on the top of his computer. However, in the shot right after Tadashi's death, the top of his computer is bare. Then, after Hiro and Baymax return from the police station, the 2 figures are on the computer again. See more »

How to develop a lifelong love of the movies
A little over a year after I took my granddaughter Catrin (then almost three) to her first ever movie "Frozen" (which she utterly adored), I took her (now just four) to see this very different film from the same stable (Walt Disney Animation Studios) and I'm delighted to record that she loved it. We saw it in IMAX in 3D and we were both blown away.
Although this time the central character is a young boy - Hiro Hamada of the city of San Fransokyo - rather than two princesses, my granddaughter had no trouble relating to it because Hiro is so cute, his inflatable robot Baymax is androgynous, and two of his four friends - making up the six heroes - are very capable girls.
I reckon that "Frozen" plus "Big Hero 6" - with a few films in between - will give her a lifelong love of the movies.
