With the help of his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city. 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, the CG-animated “Big Hero 6” hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.

The source material looks to be some embarrassing artifact in that bygone era when corporations started noticing the small niche market of Anime/Manga growing in the US. Marvel tried twice with these guys and failed to licit any sort of interest amongst either camp.
