Jamie Chung and Maya Rudolph Join Marvel's BIG HERO 6

It looks like Marvel and Disney Animation have cast Jamie Chung and Maya Rudolph to voice a couple of the characters in their upcoming animated feature film Big Hero 6. Chung has perviously starred in films such as Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch and the upcoming film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and Rudolph has been in films such as Grown Ups and Bridesmaids.

The actresses NBC bio lists Big Hero 6 as one of her credits. This makes her the second confirmed cast member. The first was comedian TJ Miller. Chung is voicing Go Go Tomago, a hotheaded bike messenger who can turn herself into a ball of energy. There's not word on who  Rudolph is playing, but I imagine it will be be the character Honey Lemon. The character is described as "a Japanese superhero and member of the Big Hero 6, who has a power purse in which she has access to another, unknown dimension from which she can pull out all kinds of items." 

This is seriously going to make for such a great movie. It's 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.

The stereoscopic 3D/CG film hits theaters on November 7th, 2014. This will be Marvels first big screen animated movie, and I'm really excited to see how it turns out!
