If you’re a parent then your DVD collection is probably full of the latest releases from the big movie houses; whether it’s Frozen or classic Disney we have a huge collection in our house and now there’s a new movie that from the trailer alone has already found a place in mine and Addy’s hearts. All hail the new animated superhero on the block…Big Hero 6.
Big Hero 6, which releases in UK cinemas on the 30th January 2015, is an epic and heartfelt action adventure from Walt Disney Animation Studios that follows robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion – a robot named Baymax – and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.
If you’ve not seen the trailer then sit down, take 2 minutes out of your day and prepare to have your heart melted:-
Big Hero 6 Trailer
We’re that excited that we’ve already pre-booked our tickets to see Big Hero 6 on its release date and Addy chuckles every time she sees the trailer. With any new movie there is also the accompanying merchandise. Any parent will know that merchandise to kids is like candy…they latch on to it and it becomes an obsession; Snow Globe Elsa from the hit movie Frozen is my case in point.
To tie in with the Big Hero 6 movie release there is some really cool Big Hero 6 merchandise from the folks at Disney. Whether you want to re-create your own scenes from the movie using the range of poseable action figures or pay homage to your fellow superheroes with a branded t-shirt there is something for girls and boys. My stand out favourite has to be the plush Baymax who along with being super soft and cuddly, has multiple sounds and phrases from the film. Just squeeze his chest to activate the sound effects.
All the toys in the Big Hero 6 range are available from all good toy retailers or at the Disney store and will no doubt hit our shelves ready for the movie release on January 30th.
In readiness for the movie release we received a special package today addressed to Addy which upon opening was from Baymax himself and contained a fantastic little note and a bundle of goodies. After a tough few weeks of being poorly it bought a big smile to her face and I love the fact she wrote her very own thank you note to the big man himself #proudmum
