‘Big Hero 6’ Interview: Don Hall and Chris Williams Talk Disney’s First Marvel Animated Film

Big Hero 6 directors (L-R) Chris Williams and Don Hall

It has been quite an amazing journey for Big Hero 6 directors Don Hall and Chris Williams. When Disney acquired Marvel back in 2009, Hall found an obscure Marvel property that he would use as an inspiration for his follow up to Winnie The Pooh. Chris Williams then came on as co-director to help help him out.

Big Hero 6 may be an adaptation of a Marvel title, but this is a Disney movie through and through, and is a culmination of years of research at Carnegie Mellon, San Francisco, and Tokyo, as well as writing and rewriting the story over and over until it was just right.

The Academy Award-nominated* film is already out on Digital HD, but will be available on Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack on February 24. We had a chance to sit down with the directors for a one-on-one interview where we talked about going from the pages of the comic book to the film, the recording process, cosplay, the research, and working with Marvel. Hit the jump for the full interview.

Moderator Chris Hardwick introduced the panel for Disney’s upcoming Big Hero 6, their first animated feature based on Marvel Comics characters.

First up were directors Chris Williams and Don Hall, as well as producer Roy Conli. They started working on it and pitched it three years ago, right around the time of New York Comic-Con.

A clip is then shown. Set in San Fransokyo, a slightly futuristic city with a real feel to it, we find young genius Hiro not using his gifts in good ways. His brother, Tadashi, hoping to set him on a better path, lures him to his university lab. “Welcome to the Nerd Lab.” It is there that he is introduced to Baymax, a robotic healthcare companion (kinda resembles the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man), and the other nerds: Honey Lemon, Go-Go, Wasabi (“I spilled Wasabi on my shirt one time people!”), and Fred (who’s not really a student there, just a part-time mascot who thinks science is cool).

Bolt 3DBolt
3 Blu-ray Combo Pack
Directed by Chris Williams and Byron Howard
Starring John Travolta and Miley Cyrus
Walt Disney Pictures Home Entertainment
Release Date: November 8, 2011

When talking about the current state of Disney’s animation side of film production (and that’s Disney proper, not Pixar), things aren’t as good as they have been. Animated projects are not only seeing less and less respect with critics, but frankly, they don’t seem to be hitting the zeitgeist in general. However, there is the occasional gem.

Hitting theaters in 2008, Byron Howard and Chris WilliamsBolt has become something of a rarity amongst the general collection of modern day Disney animation releases. It’s not only one of the prettiest pieces of animation the studio has to offer, but it is both wonderfully charming performance wise, and is far more touching than anything Disney has seen hit theaters in quite some time.
