Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Tue, 16/09/2014 - 16:40

Meryl Streep is a dirty old witch in the first poster for Disney's upcoming musical Into the Woods. A modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods plays with intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. The classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel are all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

'Big Hero 6' TV Spot Puts Baymax's Ninja Skills on Display

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Tue, 16/09/2014 - 16:39

Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter) puts his robotic companion Baymax (voiced by Scott Adsit) through some intense training in the latest TV spot for Disney's Big Hero 6. As you can see in the footage below, while Baymax may think his ninja skills are "sweet," he still has a lot of work to do before he can help Hiro save their home city of San Fransokyo.

Check out the latest footage from Don Hall and Chris Williams' animated adaptation of the Big Hero 6 Marvel comic book, which also features the voices of Jamie Chung, Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr., Alan Tudyk, T.J. Miller and Maya Rudolph, before it hits theaters November 7.

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius-thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. 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 robot named Baymax-and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action, Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt), and produced by Roy Conli (Tangled). The film hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.
