Disney’s Big Hero 6 arrives into theaters tomorrow, November 7, so what better way to spend Big Hero 6-eve with a new official installment of ‘Fun Facts’ direct from Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios? Below is the list of fresh fun facts, some of which you may know already, but hopefully we’ll all learn something new. So read on!
Walt Disney Studios and Disney Animation Studios have launched a new micro-site in support of Big Hero 6 (Nov 7, 2014), titled ‘Baymax Hero Lab.’ Via a series of questions and fun interactive activities such as a Big Hero 6-themed memory game and plugging the leaks in Baymax, the site aims to give you a super hero identity along with identifying your super power and teaming you up with one of the Big Hero 6 team members.
At a special event held earlier today at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took to the stage to give a sneak peek into Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — i.e., what will take place after Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron hits the big screen on May 1, 2015.
Captain America 3: Civil War will be released May 6, 2016, followed closely by Doctor Strange on November 4, 2016. The latter will be directed by Scott Derrickson who was in attendance at the event. According to Feige, Doctor Strange ‘will open up a whole new world for the cinematic universe.‘
Walt Disney Animation Studio’s Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014) held the prestigious honor of opening the Tokyo International Film Festival last night and to celebrate the occasion, Baymax himself was in attendance at the red carpet event. You can watch some footage from his international debut embedded below, along with a special message from the inflatable nursing robot himself.
Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios have provided us with high resolution versions of newly released stills from Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014). The new stills, which feature the team — both in and out of uniform — as well as a private moment between Aunt Cass and Hiro, have been added to the beginning of our gallery of stills from the film, which you can find embedded below.
In honor of the release of the first teaser trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015), Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have provided us with the first teaser poster for the film in high resolution.
Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Teasing a special announcement at the end of tonight’s episode of ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,’ Marvel today announced that it will finally be releasing the trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron during next week’s television episode. The trailer has previously only been shown to attendees of the Hall H panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and to a small room at the Marvel Unlimited Plus members-only event at New York Comic-Con.
Yesterday, we shared news of a new Japanese trailer for Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014) — known in Japan as Baymax. The new trailer featured two songs: ‘Top of the World’ by Greek Fire — as heard in the domestic trailer — and a ‘brand new’ song, ‘Story’ by American-born Japanese artist Ai. Although Ai had released the song previously in Japanese, it was never released in English until now as it will be attached to the end title credits of the film as opposed to Fall Out Boy’s ‘Immortals’ in the United States.
Walt Disney Studios Japan has released a new trailer for Baymax (its title for Big Hero 6) and unsurprisingly, it plays up to the heavy emotional tone of the film, in particular the relationship between Hiro and older brother Tadashi. While it clocks in at about the same length as the second domestic trailer, a lot of the flashy titles were removed and replaced with the emotional cues as you can see in the screen grab shown here. Unfortunately the trailer also features a minor spoiler (although if you’ve kept up on the Disney Infinity news, you may already know).
Although not quite as substantial as its bigger brother, internationally-supported Record Store Day enjoys a second go-around each year in respect to Black Friday. Although Disney’s contributions to Record Store Day have been few in number, they are often substantial and November 28, 2014 is no different. After enjoying CD, digital and even a couple of vinyl releases, the best selling soundtrack to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is returning to where it belongs: audio cassette.
The limited edition release is exclusive to Record Store Day and can be found at participating independent record stores.
