We recently had the opportunity to check out Big Hero 6 for ourselves, and I have to admit, we were really excited about this release. I had heard rave reviews from friends who had seen the movie, and I knew it would be right up our alley. After all, Sophie is basically obsessed with anything super-hero related, and claims she'd rather be a "super-hero-gamer-girl" than a princess, any day of the week. Hey, gotta love a gal with ambition, right?
With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy adventure that introduces Baymax, a lovable, personal companion robot, who forms a special bond with robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada. 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 Baymax and his diverse group of friends — adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred — who transform into a band of unlikely heroes. Bring home Disney's “Big Hero 6,” featuring comic-book-style action and hilarious, unforgettable characters -- it's fun for the whole family!

We gathered together as a family, and snuggled up to watch Big Hero 6. We knew it would be a great film, since it IS DIsney, of course...But we had no idea that this movie would become a fast favorite.
We absolutely loved watching Hero and Baymax, his clumsy yet adorable, robotic "Health Care Aide" take on the forces of evil. Hero and his band of pals work together to foil an evil plot and ultimately save the city they love, San Fransokyo. Of course there are obstacles along the way, but it's nothing that the Big Hero 6 team can't handle. The power of friendship and teamwork really do shine in this movie. As the mom of young children who like to fight, this is definitely a message I approve of!
If you haven't seen this action-packed adventure, I highly recommend doing so. This is one of those rare treats that the entire family can enjoy together. That's right...From parents to teen to preschoolers, we were all on the edge of our seats, cheering for Big Hero 6!
