The title of the movie is a play on the name of the main character, Hiro Hamada, voiced by Ryan Potter, a 14-year-old boy living in the fictional future city of San Fransokyo, which as the name implies, blends aesthetic themes of San Francisco, California, and Tokyo, Japan. Hiro is a child prodigy in the field of robotics. He has created tiny robots he calls microbots, which become the crux of the film's villainous exploits. Hiro's microbot technology is stolen and mass produced by the evil tech CEO Alistair Krei. The narrative revolves around Hiro, following the sudden death of his brother Tadashi, teaming up with an unlikely companion named Baymax, a friendly robot created by Tadashi. Together they must put a stop to Alistair Krei's work.

movie facts

The name of the movie, Big Hero 6, is taken from a Marvel Comics series from the late 1990s. Though the two are far from identical in terms of characters and plot, they both focus on many Asian aesthetic themes, as well as superhero action, and the film takes many of the comic's character names for its own characters, though reimagining many of them. Hiro himself, as well as Baymax, are relatively faithful to the comic series, though Baymax's visual design is entirely different.
