We’ve already seen one teaser trailer for Disney’s animated superhero film Big Hero 6, but only knew a few of the talent that would be providing their voices. At the time, Chris Williams and Don Hall’s film already had Jaime Chung, T.J. Miller, and Maya Rudolph on tap. But with the film’s November 7 release already just a few more months away, it was a bit strange to see that only three people had been cast.
Now we finally know who will be voicing the remaining principle cast. Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Damon Wayans Jr., Genesis Rodriguez, James Cromwell, Daniel Henney, and Alan Tudyk have all been added. Disney has also released a set of images of the characters that will be seen in the film. Hit the jump to see the character descriptions, and images.
The studio has only released five character descriptions: Hiro, Baymax, Wasabi, Fred, and Go Go Tomago. Check them out below.
Hiro Hamada (Voiced by Ryan Potter): Robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada has the mind of a genius-and the heart of a 14-year-old: his state-of-the-art battle-bots dominate the underground bot fights held in the dark corners of San Fransokyo. Fortunately, big brother Tadashi redirects Hiro’s brilliance, inspiring him to put his brain to the test in a quest to gain admission to the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology. When a tragic event changes everything, Hiro turns to a robot named Baymax, and they form an unbreakable bond-and two-sixths of a band of high-tech heroes on a very important mission.
Baymax (Voiced by Scott Adsit): Baymax cares. That’s what he was designed to do. The plus-sized inflatable robot’s job title is technically Healthcare Companion: With a simple scan, Baymax can detect vital stats, and, given a patient’s level of pain, can treat nearly any ailment. Conceived and built by Tadashi Hamada, Baymax just might revolutionize the healthcare industry. But to the inventor’s kid brother Hiro, the nurturing, guileless bot turns out to be more than what he was built for-he’s a hero, and quite possibly Hiro’s closest friend. And after some deft reprogramming that includes a rocket fist, super strength and rocket thrusters that allow him to fly, Baymax becomes one of the Big Hero 6.
Fred (Voiced by T.J. Miller): Fanboy Fred comes off like a laid-back dude with no direction. But this sign-twirling, monster-loving, comic-book aficionado is sure to go places-when he’s good and ready. For example, Fred doesn’t hesitate to join “Big Hero 6,” and he has a lot of ideas for his super-hero skillset, too. His ferocious, fire-breathing alter ego comes complete with claws, integrated communications and a super bounce. But his sign-spinning may still come in handy.
Go Go Tomago (Voiced by Jamie Chung): Aptly named Go Go Tomago knows what it takes to be fast. She’s tough, athletic and loyal to the bone, but not much of a conversationalist. Popping bubble gum and delivering well-placed sarcasm are totally her speed. The daredevil adrenaline junkie is at her best on wheels, and when Go Go joins forces with Big Hero 6, she rolls like never before, using maglev discs as wheels, shields and throwing weapons.
Wasabi (Voiced by Damon Wayans Jr.): Wasabi is committed to precision. He’s super smart and just a touch neurotic, but the big and burly beatnik can’t help but join the cause when Hiro needs him most. As part of “Big Hero 6,” Wasabi amplifies his martial arts skills with jaw-dropping plasma blade weaponry. Sharp doesn’t even begin to describe this guy.
