We really loved Big Hero 6 here at FTN – well, a few of us just liked it – but one thing that we all really agree on is that we’d love to see a sequel arrive, expanding on the characters and events from the first movie.
Now directors Chris Williams and Don Hall are already being asked about sequels and they are clear that, as John Lasseter would say, ‘No sequel will ever get made unless the directors want one and feel strongly that there is a story that needs to be told’.
“If it’s not a great story, it won’t be a great movie,” says Williams.
“The crew deserves a great story. And we have expectations from the audience, who grew up with Disney animation. They deserve a great story too.”
So good news and bad, then.
They want a sequel, but if it’s not up to scratch it’ll never happen… and we can say no fairer than that.
