Sponsored postAre you as excited as we are about the release of Disney's Big Hero 6 on Blu-ray, Digital HD and DVD?  We absolutely loved the movie in the theater and have been eagerly awaiting the day we could add it to our Disney collection. Folks, that day is today. BaymaxBig Hero 6 is a heart-warming comedy adventure about the friendship that develops between a robotics prodigy, Hiro Hamada {Ryan Potter}, and an extraordinary robot, Baymax {Scott Adsit}. Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, and produced by Roy Conli, the film takes place in the fictional San Fransokyo, where a diverse group of friends comes together to form a band of unlikely heroes.

Why we love it

I'm always looking for movies that we can enjoy as a family that have a truly good message behind them and Big Hero 6 is definitely one of those films. Instead of just having one simple message behind it, I love that Big Hero 6 has a series of cursory and deeper themes that lead to some really awesome learning experiences for kids of all ages.

From darker themes focusing on loss to lighter ideas about friendship, there were some really important ideas explored in the film. The first theme being not to judge a book by its cover.

Our hero, Hiro, may be a young boy, but even though he is small, he has the power to do great things when he puts his mind to it. From his first robots made for fighting to his amazing robot invention, Hiro proves that size doesn’t matter and greatness comes from somewhere else.

Then when Baymax shows up unexpectedly we find that there is more than one way to help someone through their grief process and sometimes just being there is enough.

Which leads us to our next theme of friendship and how the different relationships evolve throughout the film. Trusting others and letting them in may seem scary, but everyone goes through times when they need others to lean on. Knowing when you need help isn’t a sign of weakness – it’s about strength.

We see this as the team begins by fumbling and failing at their task and then works to utilize all their strengths to become a team of heroes all working together seamlessly.

We also learn that doing something for others is rewarding. From Hiro’s brother working so hard to benefit the greater good to his friends taking him under their wing and offering any help he needs, we see this selflessness come out in numerous ways.

And, lastly, we can learn a lot about revenge. The film shows healthy and not healthy ways to deal with the idea of wanting others to pay for what they have taken from you. We see how anger can make you do things you would regret and how taking the higher road can pay off in the end.

Why you should pick up a copy TODAY

Aside from all these great messages and themes, Big Hero 6 is also just a great, fun movie for the whole family. With Hiro and his colorful group of friends that includes Go Go Tomago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and Fred as well as the lovable Baymax, there were some good laughs throughout the film and a whole lot of heart. Big Hero 6 charactersWe loved how well done the animation was that really brought the story to life as well as the gorgeous setting. It was really fun seeing sites and city skylines that look familiar but are also new and exciting. The scenes that take place above the city really bring the make believe city of San Fransokyo to life and make for some breath taking cinematography.

All this and more is why Big Hero 6 rocked the Academy Awards, taking home the gold for Best Animated Feature. I must say, I wasn't surprised at all by the win. It is well deserved. Even the theatrical short “Feast” won an Oscar, which we all loved in the theater.
