Welcome to the third episode of Woody’s Roundup, a segment here on The Reel Insider. In this segment, each Saturday I’ll put together all of the animation related news and share it with you along with my thoughts. I’m a huge fan of animation as an art style (not a genre) and I want to share it here more! So, let’s get started on this week! (March 15-21, 2015)
PS: I want to apologize for not posting basically at all this week, I’ve been really busy, I hope you guys understand.

I recently watched one of my favorite animated films of last year for the first time, Big Hero 6. I have to say that from seeing the trailers and posters, I didn’t think this film would be too great, but I was pleasantly surprised. It did not have the feel to it that I expected. The furustic, technology is cool aspect play a big part into the feel of the film, and I think it was a great choice. This film has some great action and great characters as well. Baymax is one of the most huggable characters ever created. You may not expect how incredibly funny and heartfelt Baymax can be, especially by the stiff, robotic animation he has to him. Another character I want to speak about is Fred. He could have easily been a really obnoxious character, but the way Disney (as well as voice actor T.J. Miller) went with him makes a great character. He provides some of the best moments from the film, especially from a comedy standpoint. If you have not seen this film I suggest you definitely do so. It’s a must see for Marvel and/or Disney fans, especially being it includes a Stan Lee cameo. From the beginning to the end, this film captures the heart, comedy, and action that makes the Disney Revival truly special.
