Both Disney animated movies and Marvel films in general are known for their love of Easter Eggs, aka references to other projects within the universe, but seeing as BIG HERO 6 encompasses both categories, things reportedly got a little crazy!
According to director Chris Williams, animators had so much fun adding in either Marvel or classic Disney easter eggs that he and co-director Don Hall had to pull them back and even take some out!
“I will say we generally have a lot of Easter eggs in this movie to the point that we had to really tell our artists to knock it off … It got to the point where Don and I are feeling like this is getting to be too much, too distracting. So we stopped them and then actually pulled a couple things out.”
However, Don Hall also divulged the major scene in which Marvel fans should really keep their eyes peeled! It turns out BIG HERO 6 has it’s own super fanboy character, Fred, and his personal space will have plenty of goodies.
“[Marvel] was actually pretty cool and gave us like the, you know, the nod to put a few… I would say Z level characters in the movie. As little Easter eggs. And they’re in Fred’s room. So it might be a good place to look.”
