A computer-animated comedy-adventure about finding a very small fish in a very large ocean. Marlin is a more than slightly paranoid Clown Fish who is extremely devoted to his young son, Nemo, the only survivor after a hungry shark swallowed up Nemo's mother and her other offspring.
It's not Marlin's nature to explore unfamiliar waters, but when he and Nemo are accidentally separated near the Great Barrier Reef en route to Nemo's first day at fish school, Marlin gathers his courage and sets out to find his son. What Marlin doesn't know, however, is that while Nemo was looking at a boat passing on the surface, he was caught in a net and was sold to a tropical fish dealer, eventually ending up in a dentist's aquarium. As Marlin searches for his son, he makes friends with an amiable but absent-minded Regal Blue Tang named Dory, a Great White Shark named Bruce who is trying to cut fish out of his diet, a beach-rat Sea Tortoise named Crush, and Nigel, a Pelican who can take Marlin's search from the ocean to dry land.
Set in the recognisably hi-tech but endangered city of San Fransokyo, Big Hero 6 is loosely based on a Marvel Comics tale. After his older brother Tadashi is killed in a mysterious accident, teenage micro-bot obsessive Hiro (Potter) is befriended by Tadashi’s creation – Baymax (Adsit, 30 Rock), a kind and unusually snowman-like robot. Hiro then successfully upgrades Baymax’s operating system to turn him into a crime-fighting automaton that might help solve the riddle of Tadashi’s death. The relationship between Baymax and Hiro provides the core of this beautifully rendered animation from co-directors Hall and Williams, whose impressive track records include writing and directing credits on WINNIE THE POOH and MULAN. The result is an assuredly affectionate buddy movie with a futuristic twist.
