Walt Disney Animation Studios have provided us with a high resolution version of one of their newly released teaser posters for Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), featuring Hiro’s inflatable robot pal, Baymax.
Before releasing the first official teaser trailer for its upcoming animated film, Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), earlier today, Walt Disney Animation Studios quietly updated its official synopsis for the film, which did not go unnoticed by us.
While the majority of the changes were minor — mostly more of the flowery aspects and a bit of rearranging — we did happen to notice that one of the characters got a bit of a name change. Initially named Wasabi No-Ginger as he had been in the Marvel comics on which the film is based, his last name was officially dropped for the film, so he will now be known as simply Wasabi. The full, updated synopsis is as follows:
With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius — thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion — a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has just released this teaser for the first official trailer for its upcoming film, Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), which will debut online tomorrow, Thursday, May 22, 2014 at 12 pm ET/9 am PT. You can find the teaser embedded below.
On April 29, 2014, Walt Disney Records will release a three-track digital EP titled ‘Let It Go: Remixes’ according to a new listing on Amazon.
The album will contain the following remixes of the smash hit ‘Let It Go’ as performed in the film by Idina Menzel: Dave Audé Club Remix, Papercha$er Club Remix and DJ Escape & Tony Coluccio Club Remix.
For more information or to pre-order/purchase ‘Let It Go: Remixes,’ visit Amazon.
With what is undoubtedly an unprecedented move, Walt Disney Records is further capitalizing on the success of Disney Animation’s Frozen and its ‘Let It Go’ theme by releasing a ‘three disc set’ featuring fifty tracks consisting of official, international versions of the song, often in both film and end title formats, titled Let It Go: The Complete Set.
No official announcement from Walt Disney Records has been made yet, but he album showed up on Amazon last night as an MP3 album with a release date of April 15, 2014.
In honor of today’s Blu-ray release of Frozen (with a still unconfirmed release of the 3D Blu-ray in October), Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment and Disney Movies Anywhere released this featurette focusing on co-directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho, art director Michael Giaimo and others as they explore the Frozen suite at the Hotel de Glace in Quebec City, Canada. Long before the creation of the suite, however, the hotel itself was crucial to the animation process for Frozen as it served as reference material for the way light was reflected against the ice creations.
As part of its annual tribute to Oscar winners (and sometimes nominees), Mondo has announced it will be releasing its poster for Frozen by artist Tom Whalen at a random time tomorrow, March 18, 2014 (usually between 10 am – 12 pm ET, but never guaranteed). Those interested in attempting to grab a copy are advised to follow @MondoNews on Twitter for the on-sale announcement.
Known to sell out in mere seconds, the Mondo poster series entry for Frozen is limited to an edition size of just 440 pieces. It measures 24″ x 36″ and will retail for $50. For those that miss the opportunity tomorrow, there are no guarantees, but Whalen sometimes sells artist proof variants at his online store at a later date.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s confirmation of nothing to announce for the 3D Blu-ray edition of Disney’s Frozen has made fans feel as though they were left out in the cold, with many resorting to order the 3D edition from overseas, amidst fears of ‘double-dipping.’ Although there has been no official announcement, marketing materials obtained by Stitch Kingdom have indeed confirmed plans for an October 2014 release of the 3D Blu-ray/DVD release of Frozen.
Earlier this evening, during the live telecast of the 86th Annual Academy Awards presentation, Broadway diva and Tony Award winner Idina Menzel took to the Dolby Theatre stage to perform the Oscar-winning song ‘Let It Go’ from Disney’s Frozen.
