Disney has adapted the 1998 Marvel comic book, Big Hero 6, for the big screen and now we have a first look and release date.
Disney announced that Marvel's first animated feature film will be released in 2014, directed by Don Hall (Winnie The Pooh).
Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau were behind the original comic, with the movie said to be about a robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada and his robot companion BayMax, who join a team of superheroes in a high-tech city called San Fransokyo.
"I was looking for something on the obscure side, something that would mesh well with what we do,” Hall told the LA Times. “The idea of a kid and a robot story with a strong brother element, it’s very Disney.
"Marvel properties take place in the real world,” he continued. “We were looking for something to do where we could make our own world — bring in the Japanese influences, have recognizable landmarks mashed up with a Japanese aesthetic."
It's currently unknown which voice actors will be playing the roles.
