The idea for Big Hero was loosely based on the Marvel comic book series; however, it only has the title and main character names in common.Marvel Comics’ Big Hero Six is based on Man of Action. It is about a group of fictional superheroes and stars Sunfire, Silver Samurai, GoGo Tomago, Honey Lemon, Hiro Takachiho, and Baymax.
In order to blend eastern and western culture, the movie is set in a city, combining Tokyo and San Francisco, called San Fransokyo. Animators even went to both of these cities for design inspiration.
Because San Fransokyo is a fusion of two cultures, its architecture is influenced by both. Some examples are Tokyo’s pagodas and neon lights, as well as San Francisco’s skyscrapers and Golden Gate Bridge. While its environment or ambience is also inspired by the Japanese manga series.
It took Disney 4-5 years, to develop this film and its story.

Big Hero 6 is known as having the largest cast in a Disney animated film. There are 15 main characters and at least 701 other characters in this movie.
One of the many new technologies utilized by the production was a piece of software called Denizen, which was used to generate 700 unique characters. This was one of many new technologies because the production wanted to create an innovative and contemporary animation concept in the Big Hero 6 scenes and atmosphere.
This is the first film, in which Marvel and Disney Animation, worked together to create a movie.
Big Hero 6 is developed by Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. Marvel Studios is a production firm that is a subsidiary of Walt Disney Studio, which is a division of Disney Entertainment, which is owned by the Walt Disney company.
Alan Tudyk, the voice actor of Alistair Krei, is also known as being the voice actor of the Duke of Weselton in Frozen and King Candy in Wreck it Ralph.
He has a distinguished acting and voice-over career. His unusual voice helped bring many animated characters to life, especially Walt Disney’s.
Big Hero 6 was a part of both the Tokyo International Film Festival and the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
Big Hero 6 had its international premiere on October 23, 2014, at the 27th Tokyo International Film Festival, and on October 31, 2014 at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival. TIFF and ADFF are two of the world’s largest and most competitive film festivals. The goal of these film festivals is to display films inspired by various countries’ cultures.
Big Hero 6 had a worldwide gross of over $657.8 million, making it the highest-grossing animated movie of 2014.
Animators used a Japanese bell and rice cookers, as inspiration for the shape of Baymax.
Baymax is challenging to conceptualize. A “stiff” and typical mechanical robot is always meant when the term “robot” is used. Baymax, though, is unique. He had a plush, cuddly appearance and was fairly large. Japanese anime was listed by the production crew as another source of inspiration.
The animators used ants as inspiration for the Microbots. At one point during the film, 20 million Microbots can be seen at once.
In the film, Hiro Hamada created micro-robots that could come together through electromagnetism and take on any form or perform any task that their designer could imagine. These were perceived as oblong, black objects.
In order to gain better perspectives for the emotional aspects of the story, Big Hero 6 film creators, talked to social workers who primarily work with teenage kids struggling with depression and grief.
Big Hero 6 is not simply an action-packed tale; it also deals with a variety of emotions, including love, friendship, comedy, and the struggle against depression.
It was a wonderful thing that the production crew was proactive in reaching out to social professionals to make sure the tale was on the right track and appropriate for the children who would be watching this movie and going through difficult emotional times.
In order to achieve the best look for Hero, the character design supervisor, Jin Kim, studied one of his daughter’s Japanese American friends.
Considering that Hiro is a boy who is half Japanese and half Caucasian, the movie’s character design supervisor made sure that the fictitious character could inherit the qualities of each culture that the character represented.
