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).
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.

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.

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.

The world may need to be saved, but first let me take a selfie. Just ahead of New York Comic-Con and its Main Stage Panel, Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios have launched a new viral site for ‘Big Hero 6′ (November 7, 2014).
Titled ‘Baymax Photobomb,’ the site allows users to upload, webcam or Facebook a photo and add one or more characters from Big Hero 6 to the image, allowing the user to determine placement, scale and rotation of the clip-art. When the desired heroes are added to the image, the site allows it to be shared across social media platforms.
