'Big Hero 6: Baymax Blast'When it comes to Disney and mobile apps, there are pretty much two things you can rely on: first is that there is almost always at least one tie-in app/game for a movie; second is that Disney Digital Books has consistently been releasing near flawless apps that go well above and beyond expectations. ‘Big Hero 6: Baymax Blast‘ betrays neither of these. In fact, I would go as far as to suggest that reading this review would be a mistake as it will take away from potential play time. Nonetheless, here it is.

LISTEN: ‘Story’ by Ai from Japanese Release of ‘Big Hero 6′

'Story (English)' by AiYesterday, 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.

WATCH: ‘Big Hero 6′ Japanese Trailer Marches Out All the Feels (Minor Spoiler)

'Baymax' Trailer ScreencapWalt 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).

‘Frozen Fever’ Book Scheduled for March; Short in April?

'Frozen' on Disney Blu-rayWhen the all new Frozen short, ‘Frozen Fever,’ was announced at the tail end of the tail end of the television special, ‘The Story of Frozen: Making An Animated Classic,’ speculation ran rampant that it would be attached to Disney’s live action Cinderella despite only being told it would arrive in ‘spring 2015.’ It was always our assertion that not only this would not be the case, but it hinted at a still possible home video release of a 3D Blu-ray for Frozen which we originally anticipated for this month (prior to the Sing-Along edition announced for November). While we were put on blast for being the site that cried wolf, new evidence points to this possibility.
