This movie is one that many told us was their favourite Disney movie to date. After Frozen, and many classics before, that was a tall statement. So, our family of five just had to see this one in theatres, to see for ourselves what the huge buzz was about. Indeed, this film is one that will make you laugh, cry, and cheer out loud for the characters.

My girls loved this one, and were so excited to watch it when a copy arrived at our door a few weeks ago. They watched with great interest and then again the next day when they had a friend come over to play. By far their favourite moment in the film is the “Bah-a-la-la-la” Baymax fist bump.

That big white fluffy character, Baymax, will quickly make his way into your heart, so innocent and dedicated to his friends. Plus, his sense of humour will make you chuckle many times over, overall a very likeable character. I can see Big Hero 6 being one the whole family will watch over and over, it’s one to add to that Disney home library.
