After a few years of hit-or-miss quality films, Disney’s animation studio has been on a roll lately with flicks like “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Frozen.” It’s looking to keep the magic alive with its newest film, “Big Hero 6,” the first to feature characters from the Marvel universe.
Disney announced the voice cast behind the titular gang this week, and it’s full of faces both familiar and fresh. The “6” are:
– Ryan Potter (of Nickelodeon martial arts comedy “Supah Ninjas” fame), who’s playing main character Hiro Hamada, a 14-year-old genius who builds battle-bots.
– Scott Adsit (who played sad-sack producer Pete on “30 Rock”), who will voice Baymax, a plus-size robot built by Hiro who becomes the boy’s best friend.
– T.J. Miller (“Silicon Valley,” “Transformers: Age of Extinction”), who’s voicing Fred, a laidback fanboy with a fire-breathing alter ego.
– Jamie Chung (“The Hangover” series, “Once Upon a Time”), who will play Go Go Tamago, a fast, saracastic daredevil.
– Damon Wayans Jr. (“New Girl”), who’s playing Wasabi, a neurotic martial artist.
– Genesis Rodriguez (“Identity Thief,” “The Last Stand”), who’s voicing Honey Lemon. No description was released for her character.
Those leads are joined by Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, Alan Tudyk, and Daniel Henney in supporting roles.
“Big Hero 6” hits theaters on November 6.
