It was either this or the latest Hobbit flick (will they ever end?).
Given that I have not had a clue about what’s going on after ten minutes of any instalment of the Tolkien marathon, it was a no-brainer.
Knowing that this animation was based on a Marvel comic meant that I didn’t exactly approach the cinema with a spring in my step, but sometimes you should leave your preconceptions at home.
Circumstances count for a lot, so after the horror of Martin Place, Peshawar and Cairns, this dose of Disney sweetness and light turned out to be a lovely way to end the year.
Set in the brilliantly conceived San Fransokyo, Tadashi and Hiro are nerdy brothers who are into robotics. After Hiro loses his older sibling – death and grieving are not what you normally expect from Disney, but it’s handled with great sensitivity – Hiro is taken under the wing of the loveable robot Baymax, a healer rather than a warrior, who looks like a puffy white version of the Michelin tyre-man.
When the nasties come, as they always do, Hiro and his teenaged gang of Fred, Go Go, Wasabi and Honey Lemon – an admirable mix of race and gender – combine their high-tech skills to save the day.
Cartoons are sometimes burdened by the voicings of famous actors. You can become detached through your identification of them, but in this case the lines are spoken by a cast of no-names, resulting in freshness and intimacy.
As for the moving images, it really is extraordinary how the animation studios can imbue their creations with such life, even a big white blob like Baymax, who manages to talk but has no mouth – and the tortoiseshell cat is great, too.
With an upbeat soundtrack, dialogue that is smart but not smart-arsed and a hopeful morality, this is one you should not let the kids have on their own.

Disney‘s California theme park is getting a giant makeover: its Hollywood Land will be redesigned into a snowy attraction called Frozen Fun, which will be filled with characters from the Frozen movie and musical performances. Frozen – the fifth-highest grossing film of all time – will get its first ever sing-along celebration named For the First Time in Forever. Olaf’s Snow Fest will be an immersive winter wonderland where visitors can listen to music from The Frolicking Fjords and The Tubadors. Other experiences include activities from the Kingdom of Arendelle, including a snow slide, snowman-building sessions and the chance to meet everyone’s favourite winter mascot – Olaf. “Olaf’s Snow Fest has so much to offer,” promises Disney on its website, “from beautiful photo opportunities to scrumptious treats and special Frozen souvenirs. It’ll be a great spot for making memories that’ll warm your heart.” Families can also meet the queen and princess at Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome, or warm themselves up at Freeze the Night! A Family Dance Party and Olaf’s Frozen Ice Rink. In case you’ve forgotten the tale, The Royal Theatre’s Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones will retell the Frozen story while dressed as the characters Anna, Elsa and the Faire Maidens. Disneyland’s new venture comes after Frozen fans helped to increase tourism in Norway. 80 percent of the visuals in the animated movie were inspired by the nation’s wintery landscapes and tour operators saw an uplift of 40 percent in booking in the year after the movie’s release. Official Disney tours of Norway include eight-day tours of Geirangerfjord and the storybook village of Bergen – the place that inspired the kingdom of Arendelle in the movie.

As a result, Christmas approaches with expectations, obligations and even expenses to meet. There can be a lot of pressure to get the right present, send the right message and make sure no one goes away disappointed or confused as to who they love and who loves them. In this economy, every dime and every word has to mean something and be well spent. You need not only to get your message across, but to do it meaningfully and within your budget.

I’ve been stumped trying to come up with a snappy shorthand to describe Big Hero 6, Disney’s animated tale of the friendship between a boy and his robot, a plus-size health-care droid named Baymax who resembles a more socially awkward Pillsbury Dough Boy. On the one hand, the movie borrows a key strand of its DNA — the boy-bot dynamic — from The Iron Giant, yet it’s really nothing like that 1999 film. With a plot built around the formation of a team of misfit heroes, it’s more like an Avengers origin story for the Saturday morning cartoon crowd. But neither of those elevator pitches feels exactly right.
My difficulty merely reflects the movie’s striking originality. Though loosely based on an obscure, out-of-print series of comics from Marvel, which Disney owns, Big Hero 6 is fresh and inventive enough in every important way — visuals, storytelling and, most significantly, in terms of character — to satisfy even the most jaded animation fan.
Let’s start with the look. Set in the fictional metropolis of San Fransokyo, a slightly futuristic vision of the City by the Bay, overlaid with a rich lacquer of Japanese style, Big Hero 6 is part of the recent boom in great-looking animation that includes The Boxtrolls and The Book of Life. You don’t have to be an obsessive to want to see this film more than once.
The story is equally engaging. When 14-year-old orphan — and high-tech prodigy — Hiro (voice of Ryan Potter) loses his older brother, Tadashi (Daniel Henney), in a suspicious fire, the teenager falls into a deep depression.
It is only Baymax (Scott Adsit), a robotic nurse that Tadashi had been working on for a college project, who is able to pull Hiro out of his funk. First, it’s by offering his services as an ad hoc therapist. Only later is Baymax recruited as an accomplice in Hiro’s investigation of the blaze, which seems to have been started by a cynical industrialist (Alan Tudyk) interested in some micro-robotic technology that Hiro has developed.
It’s a rusty plot straight out of Scooby-Doo. Here, however, it chugs along like a well-oiled machine, thanks mainly to the charm and character — yes, character — of Baymax. Initially, he isn’t much of a sleuth. The sluggish mechanical manikin — a skeleton of metal hydraulics surrounded by an inflatable skin — suggests a miniature Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade balloon, one that moves with all the grace of The Jungle Book’s Baloo, but with a full diaper. Baymax isn’t just slow on his feet — he’s slow-witted, too. If it doesn’t have something to do with medical diagnostics, he just isn’t very good at it. Still, he’s an adorable klutz. Only later will his medical expertise be put to good use, along with a couple of martial-arts upgrades that Hiro adds to the bot’s programming.
As Hiro and Baymax get sucked deeper into the story’s intrigue, four of Tadashi’s former classmates at what Hiro calls “nerd school” (Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr., T.J. Miller and Jamie Chung) also throw in with them. Like the robot, they aren’t born crime-fighters, yet each soon develops a real-world application for his or her pet research project: plasma blades, magnetic-levitation discs and other high-tech toys that turn out to be surprisingly effective against bad guys. Baymax even acquires a suit of armor that makes him look like an overweight Iron Man, one of many effective sight gags.
It’s a movie that’s as fun to watch as it is funny. But the real appeal of Big Hero 6 isn’t its action. It’s the central character’s heart. That may sound strange, to talk about a movie that’s built around a robot in that way, but Baymax — like WALL-E and other amiable automatons — ultimately wins the day, not by overriding his inner Florence Nightingale, but by harnessing it.
Big Hero 6 (US, 2014). Directed by Don Hall, Chris Williams. Voices: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chun, Daniel Henney. Editing by Tim Mertens. Running time: 102 minutes.
The best part of Big Hero 6—the awesomely odd exploding-fist sound cuddly robot Baymax makes when bumping knuckles with his pal Hiro—comes as a delightful surprise for audiences…which is fitting, since it was initially received the same way by the guys who actually made the film. “I remember having that feeling of like, ‘That’s really weird and strange, and it’ll never make it into the movie,” says co-writer Robert Baird, who was listening when the voice of Baymax (30 Rock alum Scott Adsit) loosed his first “balalalalalala.”
Of course, there’s more to the story than that. It takes a village to make an animated movie—which is why EW chatted with four separate Big Hero crew members to get the full story behind the fist-bump. Click here for more of EW.com’s Best of 2014 coverage.
ROBERT BAIRD, co-writer: There’s this fantastic relationship in the movie between Hiro and Tadashi, and we were always looking for ways to make it seem authentic. [Disney Animation chief creative officer] John Lasseter, who’s the father of five boys, said, “Brothers are physical, and they push each other a lot, and they say a lot with just a slap or a fist bump.” And we thought, of course—when they accomplish something, let’s have them do one of those. Our story artists Marc Smith and John Ripa, they went off and came back and said, “Maybe it would go something like this.”
MARC SMITH, story lead: The idea got thrown out that it would be some sort of handshake. John and I were sitting kind of on the sidelines. We both have children around the same age; I think I was showing John one of the [handshakes] my kids had shown me. It’s called a Turkey. There’s another one, a Snail. John had a more involved one.
JOHN RIPA, story lead: I was showing Marc that on the side in this meeting, trying to figure out what [Hiro and Tadashi] could do.
SMITH: That one included the little fist-splosion thing that ended up in the movie. We looked over and Paul Briggs, our head of story, was filming us.
RIPA: Which we deeply regret. I remember thinking, “I hope that video doesn’t ever wind up anywhere.”
BAIRD: They worked out this elaborate fist bump; it was a way to show this great relationship between Hiro and Tadashi. As the story progresses and Hiro loses Tadashi, Baymax becomes a real sort of surrogate brother to Hiro. We said, we’ve set up this great fist bump—Hiro has to teach him how to do that fist bump.
My writing partner, Dan Gerson and I, wrote these pages where we said, “Hiro teaches the fist bump to Baymax, then does this exploding fist sound.” Then we wrote, “Baymax does his robot equivalent of whatever that exploding fist sound would be.” We had the brilliant Scott Adsit get into the booth and record that scene. When he got to the exploding fist bump sound, he gave us this whole variety of different sounds—exploding sounds and digital robot sounds. And then he did this weird “balalalala” sound. I remember everybody in the booth laughing, and thinking, “Well, we’ll never use that. That’s too weird.”
TIM MERTENS, editor: Rob and his partner Dan come up with the script, and they pass it off to the story artists, and then they board certain scenes together. They’re passed off to me in an editorial turnover. So I’ll get the material and basically cut together a scene, then play that for the directors and writers and so forth in order to get some feedback. It’s definitely a process that lends itself to change, and constantly trying different things. You never know what might land until you actually try it—à la their “balalalalalala.”
As I was going through the takes [of that scene], I happened upon this thing and I pretty much just burst out laughing. To watch this robot learn human traits—whether it was that “psssh” sound Tadashi and Hiro had shared or this sound, it was going to be a great scene. And so I tried this, and they played it in editorial one day, and everybody just busted up.
BAIRD: Tim cuts together this 90-minute movie that’s just storyboards, and we play it internally. They’re watching the movie, Baymax makes that sound—and the whole theater just erupted.
MERTENS: And it grew from there. We kept trying to find places throughout the film to let this sound, this balalalalala sound, land. And I think we picked just the right amount.
BAIRD: It was incredible. Every time he did that sound, people would erupt with even greater laughter.
SMITH: We watch these movies over and over and over and over, and that was one of the moments in the film that always got a laugh. People have seen it 10 times, and it still got a laugh.
BAIRD: It is the same recording each time. He is a robot, so he would repeat the same phrase.
MERTENS: Every time he says “Hello, I am Baymax, your personal healthcare companion,” it’s always the same take.
RIPA: We started to add it in other places and keep it as a running sort of joke, until it becomes more poignant in the end.
BAIRD: At the very end, after Hiro has lost Baymax, all that’s left is that fist in his lab. We realized we had a real opportunity—something turns from comedy into poignancy when he does that fist bump at the end with the Baymax fist. He makes that little sound, and suddenly people go from laughter to—it’s just this bittersweet moment. It was a really beautiful thing.
RIPA: We had just had a screening, and we were in a notes session with John Lasseter. In that screening, Hiro didn’t do that fist bump at the end. I said, “He should do that thing, the Baymax thing, balalalala.’” And I remember John Lasseter at the time, he’s like, “I have it right here!” It was in his notes; he’d written that same thing.
SMITH: The fist bump was one of many little ideas—there’s things like Hiro on the back of the scooter looking at the reflection of him and Tadashi, which echoes later on in the film with Hiro and Baymax when they’re flying around the big building and they look in the mirrors. There’s another one—in the beginning, when Hiro says he’s going to do another bot fight, Tadashi grabs Hiro by his hoodie. Later on when Hiro is following the microbots, he almost walks into the bay—but Baymax grabs him by the hoodie again. It’s a very similar gesture. That was intentional.
RIPA: We try to find many little subtle moments [that make] you feel like Baymax is becoming a surrogate brother to Hiro.
MERTENS: It was interesting watching the movie in theaters after its release, because audiences sort of came to expect that sound. You can sense the audience anticipating a balalalala. I don’t think we could have spoon fed them enough of that.
BAIRD: I was out with my son playing Little League, and I was watching some other kids. They made a great play, and they ran up to each other, and I saw them do the fist bump and the balalalala. It almost made me cry.
People make their best efforts to make an event like a party or a sports event as much enjoyable as possible for the people attending. Of all the things and ways for attracting people and making the event a fun filled affair and one of the most interesting is using a mascot. The use of mascots in major events.Such as Cookie Monster Mascot Costume and Elmo Mascot Costume.
A detachable costume that has separate head, gloves, body and shoes is way better than a single piece costume. Apart from better circulation of air, detachable parts help in cleaning the dirty ones and convenience for the wearer who likes to take the gloves or head off every now and then. You must check the costumes if they have paperboard heads which are not easily breathable. Make sure you purchase a quality mascot head, which is carved out of lightweight material or made from a mold. You can also purchase a mascot costume personalized for you by crafting the name of your team or brand on it.
If you regard making your own mascot for business use is difficult, you may be wrong. On contrary to what you may think, mascot costumes from these online shops are very affordable, and you can get a great costume specially made for you with as little as 100 dollars. Aside from online retailers, many mascot shops provide bespoke services where you can order the exact mascot costume design that you want. Custom made company’s are very useful when it comes to branding and overprinting. You can personalize your mascot by offering it the slogan of your school or corporation.

Children shopped for Christmas gifts and wrapped them with the help of reindeer and elves Saturday outside Leach Theatre at Castleman Hall on the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus.
The youngsters also made Christmas cards, took home balloon animals and had little pictures painted on their faces.
They also watched the Disney movie, “Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” about Scrooge McDuck, who learned a lesson about generosity.
And, oh, yes, they had the chance to sit in Santa’s lap and tell him what they wanted.
At the showing of the fourth film in the 2014-15 Leach Theatre Family Film Series at Missouri S&T, the lobby of Castleman Hall was transformed for area families to have more holiday fun.
The 26-minute film was shown several times from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., so there was plenty of time to enjoy Mickey’s retelling of the classic tale by Charles Dickens and still enjoy the activities outside the auditorium.
Lunch was even served for a nominal fee.
The reindeers and elves (who looked a lot like Missouri S&T students) helped the children shop for gifts that cost no more than $1.50 each. Then, they helped them wrap the gifts. All of this was done, of course, in a secret area where parents and other grown-ups were not allowed.
Also in the lobby were various stations for arts and crafts.
Mickey and Minnie showed up to visit with the children.
And Santa sat in the foyer and visited with a long line of children, graciously allowing them on his lap for pictures in exchange for promises of cookies and milk on Christmas Eve.
The next movie in the Family Film Series will be Disney and Pixar’s “Monsters Inc.” on Saturday, Jan. 31.
