One of my most anticipated animated movies to come from Disney is Marvel's Big Hero Six. The movie looks like it's going to be awesome, and it has all the makings of a big hit. Actor and comedian T.J. Miller (Cloverfield, How to Train Your Dragon, She's Out of My League) has confirmed that he will be the voice of Fred in the film. Fred is a comic book fanboy and aspiring filmmaker in the story.
The movie is being directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Mulan, The Emperor’s New Groove). Here's a previously released synopsis:
“Big Hero 6” features 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. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studio.
Apparently Fred volunteers himself as a test subject for an experiment run by Hiro’s brother Tadashi, and then sticks around a tech lab research team to help out with their robot projects. Fred is described as “quirky and weird,” and in the comics he’s able to turn himself into a giant lizard creature called Fredzilla.
The stereoscopic 3D/CG film hits theaters on November 7th, 2014.
