D23 News: Big Hero 6 Director Announced

10 Aug

By James Robert Shaw (The Wind up Geek)

More news from D23 at the Anaheim Convention Center this weekend. This time it’s an update to Marvel’s upcoming animated film Big Hero 6. It was announced that Don Hall was hired to direct the film. Don Hall’s previous credits as writer and/or director involves such well-known film titles as Winnie the Pooh (2011), Meet the Robinsons (2007) and The Emporer’s New Groove (2000).

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Big Hero 6, I offer a quick film synopsis as provided by Walt Disney Pictures:

Brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada 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.

Big Hero 6 is scheduled for release in theatres on November 7, 2014.
