Also in attendance Baymax himself seen here on the red carpet! BIG HERO 6 is set in the fantastical San Fransokyo and I think it’s pretty safe to say the much of the inspiration of this magical and fictional town comes from Tokyo itself. Before the screening co-director Don Hall called the film “a love letter to Tokyo” when he was explaining why Disney chose to premiere the film there. John Lasseter, chief creative officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios and the film’s executive producer also made the personal connection to Japan saying:

“Tokyo was a huge inspiration for this film…Tokyo is a special place and we hope Japan loves this movie because we poured our heart and soul into it…This film was made with a lot of heart. One of the things I love about Japan is its heart.”

BIG HERO 6 brings us along on the crime-fighting action adventures of a Japanese boy, Hiro Hamada, and his lovable and squishable robot Baymax based on the Marvel comics of the same name. The film will hit Theatres on November 7, 2014 just in time for the holidays!
