Updated: Trailer tease; Pics from Disney's animated Marvel film, Big Hero 6

Update: A tease for the trailer is now available, and you can expect the full trailer tomorrow at 12pm EST (9am PST).

Last month, we received some news regarding Disney's first animated foray into the Marvel world, BIG HERO 6. Aside from several voice actors and a cool establishing shot of the city of San Fransokyo, where the bulk of the action will be taking place, Disney/Marvel has been pretty tight-lipped about the project. I imagine a part of that has to do with the general public's lack of knowledge about the story/characters.

Here's a brief synopsis to bring you up to speed:

Brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion, a robot named Baymax, Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city.

The directors behind BIG HERO 6, Don Hall (WINNIE THE POOH) and Chris Williams (BOLT) have some animated experience under their belt, and have decided to drop some stills our way to give us an idea of the art style being implemented.

Check it out:

As far as animated films go, the look is pretty standard but this will be a first for a Marvel property. Given the fall release date and lack of buzz (either good or bad), this could be a real sleeper. We may have a much better idea come this Thursday, as that's when the first trailer is scheduled to hit.

BIG HERO 6, featuring the vocal talents of Jamie Chung, T.J. Miller, and Maya Rudolph, will be released on November 7, 2014.
