It appear Marvel Studios is now making it’s way into the animation department. It is apparently based on a comic series of the same name, one I’ve never heard of. Animation has been in something of a slump this year with How to Train Your Dragon 2 not meeting the lofty expectations. While I didn’t enjoy Wreck It Ralph, a movie that had a similar feeling to it, so I’m not going to be expecting much at the end of the day. Based on the trailer it at least looks like fun but it’ll probably follow the same template as Marvel’s other movies so I don’t think that it’ll break any new ground.
Set in a fictional metropolis called San Fransokyo (a portmanteau of San Francisco and Tokyo), a young robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada and his self-created robot Baymax uncover a criminal plot and pull together a team of inexperienced crime-fighters, including Wasabi, Honey Lemon, GoGo Tomago, and Fred to solve the mystery surrounding the crime.

Miller as Fred, Jamie Chung as GoGo Tomago, Damon Wayans, Jr. as Wasabi, and Génesis Rodríguez as Honey Lemon.
