It’s been teased all week but now the first good and proper look at Big Hero 6, the first animated feature from Marvel and Disney, has arrived online and it should do just enough to get smiling and skeptical over what’s in store.

Much like [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073), Big Hero 6 aren’t as popular as say, the super team with a Norse god and playboy philanthropist billionaire. As a result, it’s given directors Don Hall (Winnie The Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) more freedom to play around with a film that Hall deems as ‘inspired by’ not ‘adapted from’ the titular group of heroes. Set in the city of San Frantokyo, the film sees young robot-building genius, Hiro Hamada and his robot, Baymax team up with a group of mismatched heroes; Wasabi-No-Ginger, Honey Lemon, GoGo Tomago and Fred. Together they wield powers consisting of being able to turn into a ball of flaming energy (GoGo) and in Honey Lemon’s case, a purse that holds tripped out powers. Take that Stark - why wear a suit when you can accessorise?

If the teaser doesn’t at least leave you a little tickled then I suggest you get your funny bone replaced immediately. Clearly the pairing of Hiro and Baymax looks to be a great one and I can’t wait to see more when [Big Hero 6](movie:425271) arrives in cinemas November 7.

What do you guys think? Could this be another avenue Marvel will undoubtedly dominate like some sort of costume covered money monster? Probably, right?
