Here’s Why ‘Big Hero 6: The Series’ Looks Different Than the Movie
Big Hero 6” moves to the small screen on Monday night, swapping the 3D animation of the original for a more traditional, hand-drawn look. But other than its new look and different medium, the Disney Xd series aims to retain the key elements that made the original movie such a hit with audiences. From “Kim Possible” executive producers Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle, “Big Hero 6: The Series” features much of the film’s voice cast, including stars Ryan Potter and Scott Adsit, and same cultural mash-up world of San Fransokyo.

‘Big Hero 6: Baymax Returns’ Review: Often Hilarious, But Hardly Heartfelt

  • Collider.com
In 2014, Disney's CG-animated adaptation of Man of Action's Marvel comic Big Hero 6 surprised movie-going audiences with a hilarious, heart-warming, and incredibly heroic tale. Sure, Scott Adsit's inflatable caregiving robot Baymax stole the show, but just beneath the cute one-liners and sound effects was a mature story of loss, revenge, and redemption. Big Hero 6 was, at its core, about the relationship between Tadashi Hamada and his younger, 14-year-old brother Hiro, a relationship that's torn asunder when Tadashi sacrifices himself to save another. It's a moment that sets …

Amy Sedaris on the Biggest Challenge in Modern Comedy and Why Michael Shannon is So Darn Funny

Amy Sedaris on the Biggest Challenge in Modern Comedy and Why Michael Shannon is So Darn Funny
Amy Sedaris is a comedy legend thanks, in part, to Jerri Blank. When Sedaris was in her mid-30s, she originated the “Strangers With Candy” role, playing a 46-year-old high school freshman who looked like she was pushing 60. She was “a boozer, a user, and a loser,” and it showed.

Now, Jerri still shows herself in ways good and not so good.

“[Today people] recognize you from Jerri, which means I’m starting to look like Jerri Blank,” Sedaris said in an interview with IndieWire. “So [that] just makes you feel old.”

But with fake age comes real experience. Though her most famous character barely starts to tell the story of an acclaimed sketch performer, playwright, advice columnist, and author, the series and its effect on modern comedy is undeniable.

My 5: ‘StarTalk’ Host Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Favorite Comedians

My 5: ‘StarTalk’ Host Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Favorite Comedians
“For so many people, learning is a chore, but laughing is not. If we can combine learning with laughing, you can teach anybody, anything,” says famed American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who does exactly that as host of the National Geographic talk show StarTalk, which returns on Sunday, Oct. 1 with a new season of facts, laughs and plenty of A-list guests.

While the show regularly features scientific commentary and cosmic queries, it’s all delivered with a comedic punch. And in today’s polarizing political climate, Tyson says “it’s a comedian’s obligation to challenge social, cultural and political norms.” If they are not, then no one is being challenged to think, he adds.

So it makes sense then that so many funny people, including Ben Stiller, Jay Leno, Larry Wilmore and Whoopi Goldberg, have stopped by the show. “When a comedian is on the show as a guest, I don't seek

Emily S. Whitten: Awesome Con Round Up

  • Comicmix
Sweet Christmas, everyone – this year’s Awesome Con was busy as all get-out and chock-full of cool things to see and do, and con season is rushing by so fast that I’m just now getting to my recap! (We can also blame the con crud for this, alas. It’s been following me around for a solid month.) As always, there were way more activities than one mere mortal could get to. And on top of that, this was the first year where I really saw multiple events surrounding the con that were either not directly affiliated with the con but inspired by it, or connected to it but not part of the main con experience.

So let’s start there. First off, I was part of a pre-con round-table interview Awesome Con set up with the inestimable Stan Lee. Stan answered many great questions. He talked about what

Why the Oscar-Winning Producer of ‘Big Hero 6’ Made Big-Screen Nature Documentary ‘Born In China’

Why the Oscar-Winning Producer of ‘Big Hero 6’ Made Big-Screen Nature Documentary ‘Born In China’
After winning the Oscar for 2014’s “Big Hero 6,” producer Roy Conli was lured to what seems to be a far-flung project: a Disneynature doc, “Born in China,” which explores the life cycles of wild pandas and other native Chinese wildlife. However, he said that it was less about the animals and more about their collective capacity to communicate complex emotions and ideas.

“I’ve always loved the structure of multiple stories,” said Conli, a longtime Disney Animation executive who famously mounted the premiere of “Angels in America” at the Mark Taper Forum in 1992. “There are multiple characters that you need to fall in love with, and they will add up to one story. That was the same with this. You had five species, but you concentrated on three animal families.”

Other Disneynature movies have had more singular topics (“Bears,” “Monkey Kingdom”), but director Lu Chuan’s “Born in China
