Ever since the teaser trailer for Disney’s Big Hero 6 was released, everyone has been dying for more information. And the info is slowly trickling in.
The first scoop is regarding changes in the film’s plot. According to various Japanese news sites that posted about the film (titled “Bay Max”), Hiro’s parents are both dead. This happened when he was very young, so he had to go live with his brother Tadashi, who mysteriously disappears one day in an accident.
It’s no surprise that the Japanese outlets got slightly more information that the US. For example, with Brave and Frozen, the marketing campaigns for those films were much darker than what we got here in the US.
Even though technically, little is known about the plot, Bleeding Cool News got wind of the plot and characters last year, which they worked with us to reveal on YouTube. In that iteration of the plot (from around Fall 2013), Hiro had a mom named Cass, who was still alive and part of the plot. Films, especially animated ones, go through many story changes even a few months before release, so it’s not disconcerting that this somewhat contradicts what was revealed last year.
