The first trailer for Disney and Marvel’s first animated movie ‘Big Hero Six’ has been released.

Disney bought Marvel Studios a couple of years back and since then have been working on projects together in order to keep the Marvel superhero universe alive.

One of the projects was a new comic book range named ‘Seekers of the Weird’ which is based around a secret museum that was never opened at Disneyland, but with a Marvel twist.

Now, a trailer has been released for the first animated film to come out of the partnership, named Big Hero Six.

The press release for the film described the film plot as ‘an action comedy adventure about brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. 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.”

The film looks has the cutesie Disney twist on the Marvel comics ‘Big Hero 6’ with immediately likeable characters.

The comic was released in the 90s and was created by Steven T Seagle and Duncan Rouleau. Members of the Marvel team will also be involved in making the film adaption.

In the trailer, we see young Hiro trying to upgrade his seemingly bubble wrapped robot, Baymax, into a crime fighting, armour covered super robot.

He does this by creating brand new armour and spends the majority of the trailer trying to squeeze the armour onto the robots arms, legs, head and tummy.

Obviously it is in vain as all of the armour falls off and the robot goes back to trying to play football.

The film is set to premier January 30th 2015, and until then, you can watch the trailer here.
