|Big Hero 6 European Poster|
"Big Hero 6" is the big animated feature film release of the year. With nothing coming from Pixar this year, and DreamWorks Animation focusing solely on sequels, "Big Hero 6" is the film that animation fans are most intrigued by. It is the first Disney animated film in conjunction with Disney's acquisition of Marvel and could begin a brand new franchise. After the stunning success of Disney's "Frozen" last year, expectations are high.
Disney has been releasing artwork in dribs and drabs. The European poster gives the best view so far of the city of San Fransokyo.
Disney has released the following synopsis for "Big Hero 6":
“With all the heart and humour 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."
The release date for "Big Hero 6" is November 7 (US).

Here's more from the studio (nobody else knows anything about it) about the film:
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”).”
