Walt Disney Animation Studios trotted out their upcoming feature film slate at this weekend's D23 Expo. And among the titles getting teased was the Marvel Comics adaptation, "Big Hero 6," which also led to the new teaser image above.


Although it was announced last year, there hasn't been a lot of news out of Walt Disney Animation Studios' "Big Hero 6," the adaptation of the pair of Marvel miniseries from Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau.

And while the feature film won't be out until 2014, we've got some concept art and a synopsis describing the journey of the five heroes recruited by a Japanese teen (here it seems the Disney script has created a Japan/U.S. hybrid state) to save their city of San Fransokyo from the criminal element.



A report from The Guardian says that the studio has no plans for any traditional 2D animation, meaning we have to get used to our shiny, CG future.



For its first third, Walt Disney Animation Studios' "Wreck-It Ralph" is good--very good. Better than really any movie before it, this feature from writer-director Rich Moore is one of the finest, sweetest homages to classic gaming, with loving nods to arcade games of the past via its story of a video game bad guy who wants to go good (John C. Reilly, perfect).

It's when the CG-animated feature digs its heels into one of the games created for the film, "Sugar Rush," that "Wreck-It Ralph" starts to feel a little rote, going through the usual storytelling motions while (most distressingly) ignoring all of the rich video game history with a series of bloated subplots that lose a little bit of the initial charm.


Next up from the Mouse House is an action comedy starring Kristen Bell on a quest to find her sister and undo a frosty curse, and Walt Disney Animation Studios has just released the first piece of concept art.
