Admittedly it’s not much news in it of itself, but an updated synopsis for Ant-Man (July 17, 2015) provided to us by Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios assigns character names to many of the ensemble cast. Details are as follows:
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in
scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

If there is an emotion to be found in something, you can always count on Walt Disney Studios Japan to exploit it. In this case, they just published the Big Hero 6 music video for AI’s ‘Story,’ presented here in Japanese (if you want to hear the English version which has been released internationally, we have it here).
The music video, which features original animation, tells the message of the song as it applies to the film: when Hiro’s treasured relationship with older brother Tadashi is lost and he feels like he can never recover, he finds solace and a brand new relationship in Tadashi’s legacy, Baymax.
