From the Walt Disney Animation Studios, the same team that brought you “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” also brings “Big Hero 6,” the story of a 14-year-old boy and robotics prodigy, Hiro Hamada, who befriends a robot, his older brother, Tadashi, created named Baymax. Baymax is a big inflatable robot designed to help people with injuries by scanning and knowing medical information. When Tadashi is caught in a fire at his college, Hiro has to work through his sadness. He discovers that the micro bots he created and thought were destroyed are being used by someone. Suddenly finding themselves in the midst of danger, Hiro, Baymax and his friends transform into high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6” as they set out to uncover the mystery in this action-packed comedy-adventure. The Walt Disney Animation Studios in my opinion has really knocked it out of the park with these recent movies. The animation quality of each is fantastic and Big Hero 6 is no different. It really looks like Baymax is made of an inflatable balloon and the way he moves and talks makes him a lovable character. The number of likable characters is refreshing, each with their own unique personalities. You really feel sad for Hiro. But there are many funny parts to the film as well. The humor in the film is funny to both kids and parents; I was really surprised by the humor and couldn’t wait until they made another joke. Big Hero 6 is the best family movie that I’ve seen all year. If you want to take your family out to see a good movie this weekend, make it Big Hero 6. Movies to look for in 2015 2015 is looking to be a great year for films, with the new Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is just the beginning of the Marvel/Disney series of hero films that are coming in the next few years. There’s also Jurassic World, based on the events of Jurassic Park but twenty-two years later. The park is reopened by another company and a new attraction gravely backfires. The new Star Wars: Episode VII is also premiering in 2015. People are having mixed feelings about this film after the last three films were only okay. But with J. J. Abrams directing, there is a lot of hope for the films.
