Hiro Hamada gets diagnosed with puberty in first 'Big Hero 6' clip

Big Hero 6, the first animated Disney film to pull from the company’s acquisition of Marvel, appears to be sticking to both its superheroic and animated roots by keeping things funny amid all the action. As first seen in the initial trailer, the amusing interplay between protagonist Hiro Hamada and his personal healthcare companion Baymax has been paramount to selling the film. The first full clip from Big Hero 6 is no exception, showing off a hilarious encounter between the two in Hiro’s bedroom.

In the scene, Baymax, who previously belonged to Hiro’s brother Tadashi, responds with excessive concern to Hiro’s minor yelp of pain. Impelled to help, however, Baymax presses Hiro to find out what’s wrong despite the young boy’s protests.

Disney unveils adorable 'Feast,' schedules other short films for 2015

After the announcement of a Frozen short, Disney’s next three shorts have all been slated through 2015: Two hail from Disney’s own animation studio and one comes from Pixar, but all three look to continue the recent trend of impressive and heartwarming short films.

Feast is the closest film on the horizon, set to debut behind the Disney-Marvel collaboration Big Hero 6 on Nov. 7. From Disney Animation Studios and the director behind Disney’s Oscar-winning short film Paperman, Patrick Osborne, Feast follows Boston terrier Winston, the latest in a long line of adorable dogs in Disney films. Winston loves to eat the unhealthy food his owner drops on the floor, but both of their lives take quite the culinary turn when the owner’s girlfriend, a chef, moves into their home. Taking place over many years, the film is inspired by Osborne’s own habit of taking a picture of his life—and his meals—each day.

After Feast, Disney has two more planned shorts on the way. One will return viewers to the world of Frozen, as Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and more will reunite on screen in Frozen Fever sometime in 2015. The last announced short, Pixar’s Lava, focuses on a singing volcano looking for love. The short will screen behind Pixar’s next full-length film Inside Out, which arrives in theaters on June 29, 2015. Lava was originally planned to debut behind The Good Dinosaur, which was pushed from this summer to November 2015.

Can indie cartoon 'Hullabaloo' give new steam to hand-drawn animation? -- EXCLUSIVE Q&A

hullabaloo

Hand-drawn animation needs a hero, and the latest project to champion the technique is an upstart steampunk adventure  overseen by a group of veteran Disney and DreamWorks artists.

Hullabaloo is the Victorian era sci-fi story of Veronica Daring, a young scientist who goes on a quest to find her kidnapped inventor father. The title refers not just to the ruckus she causes, but is the codename for her secret, crime-fighting identity.

To complete her mission, Hullabaloo’s going to need friends, cunning, intelligence, and — in the real world, at least — some money. That’s where Indiegogo comes in with a fundraising campaign by creator James Lopez to raise $80,000 to produce a proof-of-concept short.

The dream: a full-length, hand-drawn feature film — something none of the major film studios plan to make in the foreseeable future.

'Into the Woods' director Rob Marshall answers all your burning questions

Before Disney released a trailer and an assortment of first- (well, second-) look photos at Into the Woods in late July, there wasn’t much information available about the upcoming movie adaptation of the beloved 1987 Broadway musical That’s why fans latched on tightly earlier this summer, when composer Stephen Sondheim indicated that the film had made certain changes to the show’s script—ones pertaining to death and sex and the elimination of fan-favorite songs.

Sondheim wasn’t pleased with the backlash. Despite the theater legend’s follow-up explanation, some fans had already decided that Disney was making a squeaky clean adaptation of an otherwise dark, adult show.

But director Rob Marshall, the man behind movie-musicals like Chicago and Nine, wants to put fans at ease by clearing up a few things. READ FULL STORY
