When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called "Big Hero 6."Written by

In the opening bot battle, Hiro goes up against Yama, a very large man controlling a battle-bot. When Yama turns and shows his back, the Japanese character for "mountain" ("yama") is embroidered on his jacket, as a joke about his large, 'mountain-like' size. See more »
When Hiro is betting at the bot fight, we can see he puts a messy pile of money on the betting dish. However, when he is taking the money in the end, the messy pile of money he put earlier is gone. See more »
The winner, by total annihilation - Yamaaaa!
Who's next? Who has the guts to step into the ring, with Little Yama...
Can I try? I have a robot. I built it myself.

At the very end of all of the credits, there is a scene between Fred and his superhero dad (a Stan Lee cameo). The Stan Lee credit runs after this special scene. See more »
In the UK version BBC Radio 1 presenters and Youtubers Dan Howell (danisnotonfire) and Phil Lester (AmazingPhil) were given the roles of Male Technician 1 and 2. This version, however, did not end up in the UK home release. See more »
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.
