It has been running around the rumour mills for some time, but Disney have now confirmed that they are adapting their own Marvel comic Big Hero 6 via Walt Disney Animation Studios. The computer animated venture will be released on 7 November 2014. We now have two official images and a brief clip showing off the city streets of San Fransokyo.
Directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh), it follows the adventures of Hiro Hamada, a robotics genius who joins a group of reluctant international superheroes to save the world from certain destruction.
The original team first appeared in Sunfire and Big Hero Six #1 (September 1998), and later had a very short lived series written by comics legend Chris Claremont.
