When Disney acquired Marvel Studios a few years ago, one of the things that got comic geeks really excited was the prospect of the studio making animated features with characters from the Marvel universe.

Big Hero 6 is the first collaborative animated film for the two creative powerhouses – a tale of a boy and his robot loosely inspired by a late-‘90s comic. Hiro, a 14-year-old prodigy, and his robot helper Baymax join a team of heroes working to defeat the “forces of antagonism” at work in the fictional city of San Fransokyo.

While there are other heroes on the team, including Go-Go Tamago and Wasabi No Ginger, Hiro and Baymax are “the beating heart of the movie,” according to codirector Don Hall.

If you couldn’t tell already, the story has a very anime-esque slant, but Hall and his codirector Chris Williams also wanted to infuse a traditionally Disney vibe as well. We’ll find out what the end results look like when Big Hero 6 hits theaters on November 7. Meanwhile, stay tuned for the first trailer, which arrives later this week.
