While Disney failed to wow attendees at the industry expo Cinemacon with news regarding its upcoming slate, one actor has taken matters into his own hands. Comedian TJ Miller (who will next be seen in HBO’s new series ‘Silicon Valley’ from Mike Judge) recently confirmed via Twitter that he will be featured in Disney’s Big Hero 6 as Fred /aka/ Fredzilla, whose powers include turning himself into a Godzilla-like monster and projecting a dinosaur avatar ‘that can only be seen from certain perspectives.’ In the comics, Fred also has claimed to spent part of his childhood living at a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. base in Japan.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Big Hero 6, an action comedy adventure about brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, the CG-animated Big Hero 6 hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.
