Big Hero 6:

Apparently, some "genius" thought that Wolverine being set in Tokyo was good, but Disney/Marvel heroes who originate FROM TOKYO being set IN TOKYO was bad.(Kinda like how they changed Donald Duck's Maui Mallard game to "Cold Shadow") IT'S STUPID! IT'S UNESSISARY! I CAN'T CONTROL IT! SO WHY AM I ARGUING ABOUT IT?

A gun-wielding dog with delusions of grandeur driving across the Nevada desert is a no-no, but apparently, a fox living in an animal city trying to clear his name from a crime he didn't commit and fights with weapons is fine! Okay!

[up][up]You know the Wolverine movie wasn't made by Disney, right? Disney doesn't have the movie rights for Wolverine.

[up]No shit! The point is that it's pretty hilariously useless to change location/settings when you have the rights to use that setting. Everyone can use Tokyo as a setting if it's importaint to the plot.

No need to be rude. Your post seemed to assume that the same "genius" was responsible for both movies.

I still don't see much point in bringing up The Wolverine in relation to anything Disney's doing, though. Different film companies, different executives, heck, different audiences even.

The only logical reason I can see for not using the real Tokyo would be that they wanted the freedom to make their own city, with its own landmarks, history etc. Which is fine by me, except again, why use Big Hero 6's then? Why not just create their own original Pseudojapanese setting from the start? Or, maybe that's it- this project started as something else and THEN Disney said, "We'll use an existing brand name to sell it." It might explain why they decided to go with Big Hero 6 for a film, despite it being fairly obscure even among comics fans.

[up]Actually the director Don Hall was a huge Marvel nerd and pitched John the idea of doing Big Hero 6.

San Fransoyko just seems to be part of the continuing trend recently of just making countries/locations up based on real places instead of using the real places like Tangled's Corona or Frozen's Arendelle or even the offscreen land of Maldonia in Princess and the Frog.

[up][up][up]Sorry, but obviously Wolverine was made by 20th century Fox, but the point is a lot of companies have liberty of using Tokyo as a setting, and not one asian person or otherwise gets offended, so to make a setting different from it's original comic/manga because "We wanted it to be accepted by all ages and races" is just totally weak, but I guess it's not the first time this has happened. I can't think of any other Marvel movie with this problem, though.

[up][up]That makes THE most sense so far.[lol]

My best guess is that they want all their animated films to be timeless. A major metropolis like Tokyo is constantly changing, and having landmarks, brand names, and other icons on-screen would date the film horribly.

That kinda makes sense. Lilo and Stitch is kind of Timeless in that regard too.

You know, I just realized that this project is basically the reverse of Tiger & Bunny. While that series was a Japanese homage to American Superheroes, Big Hero 6 is an American homage to Japanese ones. T&B is even set in their own fictionalized version of an American city (Sternbilt City, which is obviously New York.) Now, T&B was an *excellent* production -heck, it got the morality and mystique of superheroes better than most modern comics do these days in my opinion- let's hope that BH6 does just as well.

(Heh, it might even be worth it doing a Fan Crossover between the two. wink)

Seeing from that point of view, I can accept it a bit better.

Does no one remember Heroman? An anime taking place in America, about American superheroes, and created by Stan Lee!! Basically the same kind of example as Tiger And Bunny. ...oh, and ALSO Marvel-related!

Okay, but could they NOT think up a name as lame as simply combining two town names together??? I feel awkward whenever I say it!!!

 118 Sijo, Tue, 20th Aug '13 7:54:43 AM from Puerto Rico
I remember Heroman but Tiger and Bunny was (as far as I know) a complete Japanese production, while Heroman had, as pointed out, Stan Lee working on it. What truly surprised me about T&B was how well it got all the American Hero tropes, even appearing to deconstruct them at the start (ex. heroes as corporate mascots) only to firmly reconstruct them later.

Anyone have an idea on when we can expect a new trailer that isn't only a few seconds long and actually gives us an idea of what the story and characters will be like?

I'm guessing we'll get a teaser with either Maleficent or Planes: Fire and Rescue. Or with Muppets Most Wanted, if we're lucky.

[up] Sounds logical.

By the way, anyone think that Big Hero 6 will show up in a future episode of Ultimate Spider-Man to probably build hype for the movie, like how the Guardians of the Galaxy showed up in an episode of USM for that same reason (if I'm not mistaken).

Do Disney films need co-directors? The reason I found Frozen so schizophrenic was the push of two directors which I feel hurt the film.

Most Disney films from the renaissance onward have had two directorsnote , and Frozen's second director was added pretty late in production.
