North American publisher Yen Press is set to publish the manga adaptation of Disney’s upcoming Big Hero 6 movie.
The film itself is based on a Marvel comic book series and having graced cinema screens later this year, the property will be returning to the page in manga form.
The Big Hero 6 manga first launched in the September issue of Kodansha’s Magazine Special and is the first manga series to previews a Disney movie story before it lands in cinemas.
The film follows the adventures of a robotics genius, Hiro Hamanda as he finds himself at the centre of a plot that threatens to destroy his home town.
Hamanda enlists the help of his robot friend, Baymaz and a team of inexperienced super heroes, including Go Go Tamage, Wasabi No-Ginger, Hney Lemon and Fred.
Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, the film is the first animated Disney movie to feature Marvel characters since The Walt Disney Company bought Marvel Entertainment in 2009.
