'Big Hero 7' release date, plot: Sequel may come out sometime in 2019


“Big Hero 6” was such a big hit back in 2014, and fans have been waiting for Disney to announce a sequel for some time now. While the studio has kept a tight lid on future projects, sources believe that it would only be a matter of time before Disney decides to push through with a follow-up to the first film.

Reports believe the sequel, which is unofficially called “Big Hero 7” for some reason, will probably come out in 2019 since Disney is going to be busy developing and promoting a host of films in the next two years. The movie will supposedly come out after “The Incredibles 2” and “Frozen 2.”

While Disney has yet to announce that they are working on a sequel, there are already theories circulating saying Tadashi Hamada could return as a villain since his body was never found after the explosion. Professor Callaghan will allegedly bring Tadashi back to life and use him to fight Hiro and the rest of the group.

Some fans even believe Tadashi would become Sunfire, a character who was briefly a member of the team in the comic book version of “Big Hero 6.”

This is just a fan theory so readers should not take it seriously. It should be noted that Sunfire is actually an “X-Men” character, so his presence in a film not produced by 20th Century Fox is highly questionable. Silver Samurai is also a member of Big Hero 6 in the comic books, but Fox holds the rights to the character.

In an interview with Variety last year, “Big Hero 6” co-director Chris Williams stated that a sequel would not be made unless it has a great story to tell.

“If it’s not a great story, it won’t be a great movie,” said 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.”
