Good , But It Is Overrated By Some
This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
I was hoping for a continuation of the movie, and when I found out we were getting one, I was beyond stoked. The animation looked bad in the promos I saw, but somehow the animation in the full show ended up somewhat fluid. It's not the best and its animation doesn't beat DuckTales or Gumball, but it's still passable. The characters are great and act just like they did in the movie. The new characters, like Karmi and Mrs. Granville are decent characters as well. Karmi is mean and arrogant, but what people dont seem to understand is that those qualities are part of her character and the writers made her like that on purpose. Think of Pacifica from Gravity Falls. She started as a cliche mean blonde girl, but ended up turning into a very likable character. Karmi will likely end up dropping most of her negative qualities as well, and become more of a helpful associate. However, a of these characters Paul in comparison to Obake. He is the main villain of the show who has plans to take down Big Hero 6. He has a mysterious past as he was shown to have gone to the same school Hiro and his friends go to (see episode "Small Hiro One"). The other villains, Globby and Noodle Burger Boy, are not that interesting, but they are good enough, and as the series continues to grow, I'm sure well get more likable villains (other than Obake). Cant wait to see where the series goes from here.
The series have likable characters, intelligent writing, humor and heart. What more could you want from a children's TV show (or any show for that matter)? I enjoyed the animation style too, because I really miss the traditional 2D animation. Don't get me wrong, I love 3D movies, with each new one in the cinema, the CGI gets more impressive and enjoyable and I would certainly miss them if they stop making them. It is just that traditional animation has its charm too and the number of 2D movies has gone significantly down in recent years. Anyway, in the case of Big Hero 6 nothing of the spirit of the original movie is lost in the transition to 2D TV show. And for those who are fond of cats, there are cute cats now and then in the background, the subtle (or less subtle) anti-cat attitude, other movies and shows love to indulge in, is completely absent from these series.
Kids have to be realistic here, they can't expect the same animation quality for the series than the movie. Sure, the transition from the CGI of the film to the 2D animation of the series takes a little while to get used to but by the end it flows perfectly. And kids must understand appearance is not the only thing in a movie or a series. Big Hero 6 The Series feels like a sequel, the humor is there, the action is there, and most importantly the heart is there.
The animation is crap, the movie was so beautiful, but this? This reminds me of the direct-to-video sequels Disney made in the late 80's and 90's. I can not stand it. Why has it has to look like an 70's cartoon drawn in a sweatshop. There is no need for it too look this bad. As you can see I am disappointed because I love the movie and well.....aaaargh!
