Here is what I came up with!

Big Hero 6 #movies

Big Hero 6

Have you seen the trailer yet?


Big Hero 6 is a new Disney movie coming out on November 7, 2014. I saw the trailer and knew it was going to be on the list of "must sees" here. We just saw Earth To Echo and that was a great family movie, I am sure this will be just as full of family and adventure. Garrett love robots and wants to build them when he gets older. I love movies and things that will help him reach that and advance in things he likes and wants to do. 

From the site: 
An action comedy adventure about a brilliant robotics prodigy, Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion, a robot named Baymax-Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city. 

Kids can already join in the adventure over at the Big Hero Shootout Game

Released On: November 7, 2014     Rated: Not Yet
Cast: T.J. Miller, Maya Rudolph, and Jamie Chung
Directors: Don Hall and Christopher Williams
Production: Walt Disney Pictures
