Baymax hogs the spotlight in new trailer for Big Hero 6: watch now

Disney has released a new trailer for animated adventure Big Hero 6, which places the focus squarely on Baymax, one of the cuddliest robots ever to grace the silver screen.

Baymax is the companion of young inventor Hiro Hanada, who brings his robotics wizardry to bear when he and his friends decide to make a stand against a rampaging supervillain.

And while Baymax might be a lovable, bumbling buffoon by design, a quick armour upgrade turns him into a serious force to be reckoned with…

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

There looks to be a lovely lightness of touch on display here, with the sellotape gag a particular highlight of the latest trailer. And then there’s the fact that Baymax is undeniably adorable…

Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams and co-starring the vocal talents of Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit and Jamie Chung, Big Hero 6 will open in the UK on 30 January 2015.
