BIG HERO 6

We’ve only seen two trailers for Disney’s upcoming animated film Big Hero 6, but the marketing team has been quietly making the promotional rounds by holding film panels during the D23 Expo and Comic-Con.  But if you are looking for something more extensive and in-depth, we’ve got it all right here.  Earlier this summer we were invited to Disney Animation Studios in Burbank to look at the animation process that goes into a film like Big Hero 6.  Our behind-the-scenes look also included an interview with directors Don Hall and Chris Williams, and producer Roy Conli.

Hall (Winnie The Pooh) was the first to be named director back in 2011, and Williams (Bolt) was named co-director December 2013. While the two have different aspects from a personality standpoint, the their love of Disney Animation and the source material brought them together for this project.

Our interview reveal a number of things, like did you know that a research trip to Carnegie Hall helped shaped the Baymax character?  How about the number of Japanese Animes that influenced the film?  How they managed to balance the work between two directors?  How many times the story changed throughout the years?  What it was like to work with Marvel on this film?  Read all about that and more after the jump.

No superhero movie is safe from plotholes, all of their scripts have them, and videos from Honest Trailers and How It Should Have Ended are more than happy to point them out. But for How It Should Have Ended, they provide their own alternate endings for said film.

Now with Marvel Studios releasing one successful film after another, some of the bigger plot holes in the film are a bit more obvious, like how come Iron Man, Thor, or Captain America didn’t call the Avengers to help when they had the chance. The film’s merely glossed over that, and expected us to accept the notion that just because it is a solo film, they are on their own.

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier hitting store shelves next month, the people over at How It Should Have Ended released heir latest video, How Captain America The Winter Soldier Should Have Ended. Hit the jump to check it out. [Read more...]
