"Sweet and sharp and exciting and hilarious, Big Hero 6 comes to the rescue of what's become a dreaded movie trope - the origin story - and launches the superhero tale to pleasurable new heights," said Alonso Duralde of The Wrap.

"There's enough that's new and different about "Big Hero 6" to get excited about, especially for those still too young for Marvel's more intense live-action fare," said Peter Debruge of Variety.

"An animated comedy-adventure that cannily combines the emotion, humour and - courtesy of a cuddly inflatable robot - cuteness expected from Disney with a heavy dose of Marvel-style superhero action," said John Hazelton of Screen International.

Big Hero 6 hits on November 7, 2015, and could take a considerable chunk out of the takings of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.
