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.
Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios have recently released a series of clips from Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), which you can find embedded below.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph, comes Big Hero 6, an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot,and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called Big Hero 6.
To create the city of San Franksokyo for Disney’s Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), Walt Disney Animation Studios introduced a lot of new technology to make it happen: importing real world data from San Francisco’s county assessor’s office; creating a new rendering system called Hyperion (also used for Feast) to handle how light is handled; and creating Denizen, a piece of software to populate San Fransokyo with citizens (and tourists).
Rather than have to design and animate thousands of locals individually, Walt Disney Animation Studios created Denizen, a proprietary system created that revolutionizes how artists create and animate crowds.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a new teaser video from Patrick Osborne’s short, Feast, which will play before Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), which you can find embedded below.
Feast, a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation for Paperman) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.
Walt Disney Studios and Disney Animation Studios have shared a new clip from their upcoming film, Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014). The clip, titled ‘Low Battery,’ takes place after Hiro and Baymax first encounter Yokai and have gone to report the incident to the police. It’s part of a larger clip which was first shown to the attending audience at the recent New York Comic-Con panel. Note it appears that the audio is tremendously out of sync so hopefully it will be resolved soon.
As we previously announced on Twitter, Amazon has begun listing the original motion picture soundtrack for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014) with an anticipated release date of November 24, 2014. UPDATE: Disney has confirmed November 24 as the physical release with a digital release of November 4.
As we also confirmed last week, ‘Immortals’ by Fall Out Boy will be the end title track for the film and as a result, an official ‘music video’ for the song has been released. The single is also currently available on iTunes. You can watch the new music video embedded below.

This past weekend, Marvel Television gave attendees at New York Comic-Con the very first look at its upcoming series, ‘Daredevil,’ which will premiere on Netflix in 2015. Based on the popular Marvel super hero, and taking great influence from Frank Miller’s The Man Without Fear, the dark 13-episode series stakes itself in ‘gritty reality’ and will lead into additional series based on Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.
At the Marvel Unlimited Plus members-only event held earlier this morning at the New York Comic-Con, Marvel shared exclusive first looks at upcoming films Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron as well as the debut of the trailer.
In the Ant-Man scene, we hear the voice of Hank Pym as he introduced himself to a tiny armored Scott Lang as Ant-Man running through the streets. Pym introduces Lang to a relatively large fly that Pym is able to call on to take him where he needs to go.
