"Never in my wildest dreams would I ever think I'd be a part of a film that would be potentially nominated for an Academy Award," said the film's star Ryan Potter, voice of Hiro Hamada.

"I think the people who created this film deserve any accolades they get," said Scott Adsit, voice of Baymax.

Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, Big Hero 6 is an action-packed animated comedy following the special bond between plus-sized inflatable robot Baymax (voiced by 30 Rock's Scott Adsit) and boy prodigy Hiro Hamada (voiced by Supah Ninjas' Ryan Potter). Hiro transforms Baymax and his other friends Go Go Tomago (voiced by Sucker Punch's Jamie Chung), Wasabi (voiced by New Girl's Damon Wayans Jr.), Honey Lemon (voiced by Identity Thief's Genesis Rodriguez) and Fred (voiced by Silicon Valley's T.J. Miller) into a band of high-tech guardians called Big Hero 6.

The film hits theaters Nov. 7th.
