Is there will be a Big Hero 7? When it comes to animated films, Disney has always found a way to produce films that can move from hurting one’s heart to melting it while also reminding us of the basic pleasures of life. They are more than just children’s films because each of them is meaningful in its way, and each of them serves as a reminder and a lesson on love, hope, and life in more ways than one could ever think.
‘Big Hero 6‘, on the other hand, is possibly one of Disney’s most experimental projects to date, as well as one of its most successful. Not only is it the highest-grossing animated picture of 2014, but it is also the third-highest-grossing non-Pixar film of all time, behind only ‘Frozen’ and ‘The Lion King,’ according to box office records. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and earned nods for Golden Globe and BAFTA awards.
It is loosely based on the superhero team of the same name created by Marvel Comics. It revolves around Hiro Hamadi, a young robotics genius, and his relationship with Baymax, a giant inflatable healthcare robot he builds with his friends. Because Hiro, our protagonist, is also half-Japanese and half-American, the film is set in the futuristic town of Sanfransokyo, which is a hybrid of the cities of San Francisco and Tokyo. Hiro is shown throughout the film, grieving the death of his brother, Tashadi, who was responsible for the creation of Baymax. According to the story, Hiro and Baymax join together to form a high-tech superhero team to avenge his brother’s death.
Since the debut of ‘Big Hero 6‘ in 2014, which has received widespread critical acclaim and economic success, fans have speculated about the likelihood of a sequel. Since the film’s premiere, there have been several speculations and rumours about the possibility of a sequel. Both the filmmakers and the cast have expressed an interest in the case. Like the last one, the film concludes with a sequence in which the team reunites to continue their job as superheroes, laying the stage for their future adventures. Here’s what we know so far regarding the film’s continuation.
Plot of Big Hero 7
The remark delivered by Baymax in ‘Big Hero 6’ is not only the film’s most emotionally cathartic but also a warning of what may come next.
Hiro reunites with Baymax, GoGo, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, and Fred to save the day. “The nice thing is that my brother wanted to help a lot of people,” Hiro says before the credits. That’s what we’ll do.” After the credits roll, we are treated to a humorous Stan Lee appearance as Fred’s father, remarking, “We’ve got a lot to speak about”, implying a future Disney – Marvel partnership for a ‘Big Hero 6’ sequel.
Despite the lack of a second feature film, we did get our sequel in a way. The Disney Channel’s ‘Big Hero 6: The Series’ launched in 2017. Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley (‘Kim Possible’) conceived the series. The series picks off where the film leaves off and is a hit. The entire cast returns. ‘Big Hero 6: The Series’ just got a third season. Despite this, a sequel film titled ‘Big Hero 7’ is said to bring a new character to the squad of 6.
Unconfirmed rumours claim Tadashi Hamadi, Hiro’s older brother, and Baymax’s creator, Tadashi, will return in the sequel. The picture is based on the same-named Marvel Comics, and the Disney series has already been continued, so there is plenty of material for a feature sequel. Tadashi may reprise his role as Sunfire in the ‘Big Hero 6’ sequel.
Tadashi was created for the film and not a Marvel Comics character. Sunfire is a former Big Hero 6 team member and leader in the original comics. In the comics, Hiro mourns the alleged death of Sunfire, only to discover that he was always alive. Tadashi dies in a fire in the film, increasing the likelihood of him returning as Sunfire. There’s also talk of Tadashi as Sunfire returning as a villain, only to join the Big Hero squad to battle an even bigger villain.
Cast of Big Hero 7
Nothing new here. The original Big Hero 6 cast and voices will reprise their roles in the film sequel. As a result, we got Ryan Potter as Hiro, Baymax as Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung as GoGo Tomago and Maya Rudoph as Aunt Cass. Daniel Henney will probably return as Tadashi in the sequel.
We are still unsure if Rodriguez referred to the animated TV series or a possible theatrical sequel to ‘Big Hero 6’.
Also, since we don’t know much about the sequel’s primary adversary, we can’t say who will portray him, although a new cast member will probably be added.
Release Date of Big Hero 7
Since most of the theories concerning ‘Big Hero 6’ have been speculative, there is no definitive confirmation that ‘Big Hero 7’ will be made.
Considering Disney’s track record, the sequels to ‘Frozen,’ ‘Wreck It Ralph,’ and ‘Maleficent,’ were just released in the last two years. However, another Disney (Coco 2) superhero film, ‘Incredibles ‘, got a sequel after 14 years. There is still a chance for a ‘Big Hero 6’ sequel.
If ‘Big Hero 7’ happens, I expect it to be released in 2023 or later, as Disney quickly reveals its upcoming projects.
