Big Hero 6's Genesis Rodriguez has heard "rumblings" of a sequel

BIG HERO 6 directors Don Hall and Chris Williams recently said Disney isn't currently developing a follow-up, however star Genesis Rodriguez believes a sequel might be in the works. Rodriguez has been out promoting her new movie RUN ALL NIGHT, and the actress said she has heard talks of a BIG HERO 6 sequel during an interview with Screen Rant.

There’s rumblings of something else happening. I mean yesterday I just saw that it’s the third most grossing Disney animated feature, so this is huge for them. I doubt that they wouldn’t want to do another one. It was a huge success.

Genesis Rodriguez went on to say "Just like comic books, you could make it a complete different story and the superheroes reunited to attack someone else. So it’s a perfect little setup they got for a sequel if they wanted to."

I'd be shocked if Disney decided not to do a sequel. BIG HERO 6 received glowing reviews from most critics, was a big hit at the box office, and last month it won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. But I'm definitely down for another movie, and I am glad Disney isn't trying to rush a BIG HERO 6 sequel to the big screen.

Genesis Rodriguez's RUN ALL NIGHT will hit theaters on March 13, 2015.

I really enjoyed the film, and would welcome a sequel. There's so many different paths they could go down for the sequel. Now where is our Bolt sequel?

Disney is such a huge company and Big Hero Six made so much money that it doesnt surprise me that someone is thinking up a "Big Hero Seven". But the only chance that this movie has of getting a sequel over anything else at the House of Mouse is that this is based on a Comic book. Disney doesn't do true sequels as much as people think. There are so far only 4 true sequels, and they come out at the very least a decade apart. All those direct-to-videos don't count because no one considers them

And Pixar is a different studio. Disney has 3 movies green-lit for production right now, and none of them are sequels.

I'd more expect Big Hero 6 to turn into a animated series before it gets a true sequel

I want a sequel, dmmit

It was How to Train Your Dragon 2 for me last year and Big Hero 6 so far this year (we didn't get it until the end of January). My 7 year old soaked them up despite some of the dark themes involved such as a death in the family. Her fondness of Toothless wins out over Baymax although she hasn't tired of the Baymax fist-bump.
I'm deliberately excluding Frozen, by the way. I'll be going to see Cinderella this weekend, which I will probably enjoy but for my daughter it is primarily to see Frozen

I don't think I've figured out a twist faster than Big Hero 6. Just shows how redundant Hollywood is.

I guess Disney are just going to have to work on their Kiddies' version of the Usual Suspects.

My seven-year-old niece didn't figure it out, and she's kinda the market demo. If the parents figured it out early, good for them, they probably should have.

Check out the big brain on Jules. Seriously though it's a movie aimed at 7 year olds so the big plot twist has to be at a level that a small child would at least be able to connect the dots. Really not overly suprising that a grown man could figure out the "twist" when there are only 2 characters in the movie that could be the villain.
