Seeing as there will be no Disney Canon film released this year, I think it’s a good idea for me to catch up on the Forgotten/Minor Characters posts for the Disney Canon films that I haven’t done yet. Today, we take a look at the 2014 film, Big Hero 6. I won’t go over the plot or my thoughts of the film here as I’ve done that already, so let’s go straight into the forgotten/minor character for this film: the General.
Well, it’s the review that you all have been waiting for: my review of the 54th Disney Canon film that won the Best Animated Feature Film Oscar in the 87th Academy Awards, Big Hero 6!
Too bad. Here’s my review!
Well, the 87th Academy Awards were yesterday and you can check the list of winners here. In terms of animation, Disney won the Best Animated Short and Best Animated Film Oscars for Feast and Big Hero 6, respectively.
I congratulate Disney on this, although I was sure that How to Train Your Dragon 2 was going to win. In the end, I only correctly predicted 12 Oscars this year and couldn’t beat my high score last year of 14. Oh well, there’s always next year, God-willing!

Well, it’s that time again: OSCARS TIME!!!! The nominations have been announced and can all be found here. But, I’ll just list the animated films nominations below:
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM:
– Big Hero 6
– The Boxtrolls
– How to Train Your Dragon 2
– Song of the Sea
– The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM:
– The Bigger Picture
– The Dam Keeper
– Me and My Moulton
– A Single Life
Let me just say that I (along with many other people) am SHOCKED that The LEGO Movie wasn’t nominated for Best Animated Feature Film! What the heck?!!!!
I’m also surprised that Glen Keane’s Duet wasn’t nominated for Best Animated Short Film!
What do you all think of these nominations? What do you think about the other categories? Let me know what you predict will win in the comments below! I’ll post my Oscars predictions in a few weeks.
Disney’s 54th film in their animated Canon, Big Hero 6, has proven to be a hero at the box office by not only topping the weekend box office, but becoming the 2nd highest opening weekend for an animated Disney film with $56 million!
Have you seen the film? How was it? How was it compared to Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, and Tangled? Let me know in the comments!
So, the Academy has announced that 20 films are qualified as contenders to be nominated for the Best Animated Feature Academy Award in the upcoming 87th Academy Awards ceremony. Due to there being 20, 5 of these films will actually make the nominations list. Which 5 do you think should make the list?
Big Hero 6
The Book of Life
Henry and Me
The Hero of Color City
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

The LEGO Movie
Minuscule – Valley of the Lost Ants
Mr. Peabody and Sherman

My picks are Big Hero 6, The LEGO Movie, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, and Song of the Sea.
THE FIRST TRAILER FOR BIG HERO 6 HAS BEEN RELEASED:
What do you all think? I know that it’s still somewhat of a teaser, but I absolutely LOVE it! I LOVE Baymax’s voice and his sense of humor! I LOVE the colors/animation/design of the world they live in! And I LOVE the absolutely terrifying villain who looks like a mix between Bane and the Phantom of the Opera!
