And the Mystery Film Is...
Big Hero 6...
Yes, the adaptation of the Marvel Comics story that will be directed by Don Hall... Walt Disney Animation Studios' first feature film co-production with another studio... You already know that I'm super excited for this. Are you?
It was revealed yesterday that the film was penciled in for a November 21st release in Spain, of all places. However, since Disney announced that an animated film was coming out on November 7th next year, Big Hero 6 will open that weekend here in the states. Still no word on how it will be done (whether it'll be hand-drawn or computer) or anything else, but I'm hoping that we'll hear more about it soon.
Disney better play their cards right with this one. With comic book movie mania in full swing, they can score a real hit off of this. Also, as I have said many times before, this is a great way for the studio to go beyond fairy tales and adaptations of classic stories again. Disney showed that they were willing to do this with something like Wreck-It Ralph, so hopefully they continue to break from the norm with this film and more films like it.
So much potential, so many possibilities... I expect another grand slam from the studio.
