Overall, I really enjoyed the film despite it being an unoriginal concept. Even though the movie was cliche from previous superhero movies it still was entertaining to watch. I found the movie to be a little mix of the movie The Incredibles and the Scooby-Doo gang. The designs of each character at first, i was hesitant about because of reused animation from Frozen and Tangled but i found the other parts of the movie to be creative and new. The story development and message of the film, was interesting and i enjoyed the Easter eggs( a hidden item placed in a movie or tv show for close watchers) placed throughout the film. I would have liked to see more story development surrounding the other characters who make up the big hero 6 but i think Disney will have this story laid out if they decide to make a sequel. The model of design and soundtrack were very well thought out and i enjoyed the visualization of the ending credits related to a comic book. I personally believe this movie will win best animation at the Academy Awards and the production team certainly deserves the dynamics and crafts that went with the exceptional designs.
