Trailer Tuesday: A New Disney Hero

The love for ‘Frozen’ is still yet to thaw, with cuddly Olaf teddies surely the must-have for every home this coming winter. Regardless, with its themes of sisterly love and big Broadway barnstormers, you simply can’t avoid the fact that ‘Frozen’ is, well, a bit girly…

Thankfully, the creative spark reignited in Disney since John Lasseter took the Big Boss job looks set to remain alight with ‘Big Hero 6’. Although it’s infuriatingly getting a pre-Xmas release in the States and a post-Xmas release in the UK, the key thing here is that the same creative verve applied to ‘Tangled’, ‘Wreck-It-Ralph’ and, yes, ‘Frozen’ is not in short supply in the movie’s trailer – so it will hopefully be worth the wait!

The promo suggests an idiosyncratic spin on the recent superhero boom with interesting references from Eastern culture. An unkind person who doesn’t enjoy fun might say it looks to be recycling elements from ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Wall-E’, but if it’s even a tenth as good as those Pixar classics then I’m happy and my faith in the Mickey Mouse Empire shall remain unshaken.
