About the film
When a catastrophe strikes the futuristic city of San Fransokyo, boy prodigy Hiro Hamada and his group of friends must defend their home. Hiro is a talented, yet misguided teenager, who focuses his gifts on illegal, back-alley robot fights. Wishing to channel Hiro’s intelligence into more productive means, his brother Takashi insists he join him at the local institute of technology. There Hiro meets the team of Go Go Tomago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Fred, and the inflatable robot Baymax. Together they combat a villainous professor bent on destruction and chaos.
Education and outreach programs at Asia Society Texas Center are made possible through generous funding from the George and Mary Josephine Hamman Foundation.
