Though I have declared my growing superhero movie fatigue, it's pretty hard to resist Disney's new pairing with Marvel.

Though I have declared my growing superhero movie fatigue, it's pretty hard to resist Disney's new pairing with Marvel.

"Big Hero 6" is Disney's 3-D animated adaptation of a Marvel comic, and it's a shameless crowdpleaser, big on heart, laughs and action.

Set in a hybrid metropolis called San Fransokyo, it follows a young robotics enthusiast named Hiro (voiced by Ryan Potter) who develops a friendship with a puffy robot named Baymax (Scott Adsit of "30 Rock").

The bonding between the lovable Baymax and Hiro is straight out of "E.T." (not that that's a bad thing), but we also get an origin story for an unlikely crimefighting team, a la "Guardians of the Galaxy."

The air of commercialization of Disney films can be a drag, but even when "Big Hero 6" feels like a video game - and a visually cool one at that - it's got plenty of heart. It's got the sort of tearjerker moments that have mostly been coming from the Pixar side, and it's quite funny to boot.

I'm sure the shelves are already lined with Baymax toys for Christmas, but it's easy to fall for the loveable 'bot and 'bot brain.
