Big Hero 6
14 year-old Hiro is a robotics wiz, wowing his scientist older brother with amazing inventions and winning a place at a prestigious university. However, when tragedy strikes, Hiro has to use his skills for much more serious and dangerous purposes. Gathering together a gang of cool scientist friends and a lovable inflatable robot called Baymax, he forms a team of futuristic heroes and sets about saving his home city of San Fransokyo. This action-packed animation brilliantly combines Disney’s traditional animation with the world of superheroes and also has a poignant message about the importance of friendship in difficult times.
