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.
