Great news – Disney/Buena Vista will be bringing Big Hero 6 to Blu-ray in the US on 24th February. A European release date hasn’t yet been confirmed but can’t be too far away.
This 3D computer-animated superhero fantasy-comedy film (bit of a mouthful) received critical acclaim, was nominated for an Annie Award for Best Animated Feature and a Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film. So what’s the story behind this action-packed comedy adventure, brought to you by the same team behind Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph?
Inspired by the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name, Big Hero 6 tells the story of a young robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada who forms a superhero team – including adorable inflatable robot Baymax – to combat a masked villain.
It’s well worth a watch –especially on Blu-ray. A range of supplements include deleted scenes, interviews with the animators, a guide to the film’s secret Easter Eggs (which include lots of references to mega-hit Frozen) and alternate sequences made just for fun. We’ll let you know when a European release date is confirmed.
