Funny how as the years rack up you can get even more out of animated movies than you ever did when you had a lot more time on your side.
Here's a prime example, "a Disney movie with Marvel DNA," as producer Roy Conli puts it, that mixes superhero and sentiment and leaves you hankering to hug or hang out with a giant inflatable medical robot called Baymax. How can something that looks so simple have such a profound effect?
Set in San Fransokyo, Big Hero 6 follows the adventures of Hiro (Potter), a teenage robotics wunderkind who teams up with brother Tadashi's (Henney) creation Baymax (Adsit) and college pals to solve quite the mystery.
As expected, there are plenty of scrapes and lessons learned along the way. What's surprising is just how much of an emotional attachment you form with big white blob Baymax, and just how much you project your own feelings about stuff onto him. Don't be surprised if you're tempted to buy a miniature version to keep somewhere at home to remind you of the important things in life.
With origins story established and box office buoyant, expect a lot more of Baymax and co on small screen or big. And even if you only see him the once in this lifetime it'll do your heart good.
Yes, "giant marshmallow", I am satisfied with my care.
