Japanese American boy Hiro (Ryan Potter) is hooked on battling robots. His older brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney) takes him to the school where he does technology experiments and Hiro is enthralled. He finds out that there is a contest to get in, and he sets out to develop “microbots” for the science fair to win him tuition to the school. But evil villain Alistair Krei (Alan Tudyk) steals his invention, so Hiro and his friends from the school set out to make things straight with the help of blowup “soft” robot Baymax (Scott Adsit) as sort of “nurse” robot that was built by his brother.

This film by the Walt Disney Animation Studios is technically a Marvel film. Things have gotten a little blurry at the different Disney Animation groups with the purchase of Pixar and Marvel. It is based on a comic book, but the characters and stories were widely changed, mainly due to the fact that several of the major characters in the comic are owned by 20th Century Fox due to their connection to X-Men which Fox owns. The story is still very absorbing and the theater was filled with people of all ages who seemed to be enjoying it very much. I found a couple things rather strange, but not being familiar with the comic book, maybe that is why. The city where this takes place is obviously San Francisco, but the common sights of the city are drawn using Japanese architecture. Seeing a Japanese style Golden Gate Bridge is rather strange. The town is referred to as San Fransokyo. Still I found the film quite interesting. It’s very new style animation, but the story is well done, and it’s all about the story. It’s a very unique story, and that adds a lot. A great mix of Eastern and Western culture.
