For those of you that were concerned after Disney's controversial buy-out of Marvel Entertainment in 2009, you can quit worrying, because Big Hero 6 is here and it looks great.

The first trailer dropped last month, and shows the company at its naturalistic, witty best:

Released on November 7, the film is the first adaptation by Disney from the Marvel back catalogue; Big Hero 6 is loosely based on the comic of the same name, created by Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau.

The story revolves around robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada and his friends Go Go Tamago, Wasabi No-Ginger, Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. How's that for a line-up? The story looks to have lots of laugh potential, too:

When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.

On voice duty are Ryan Potter, 30 Rock alum Scott Adsit, Maya Rudolph and Jamie Chung.

Disney have released a new TV spot, which gives a pretty funny glimpse of Hiro and Baymax competing to make balloon animals:
