I’m just going to start this review off by saying, Lionsgate, you can go ahead and cancel that Power Rangers movie you’re working on, because Disney just beat you to it and did it a hundred times better than I could have imagined! Now, before I get too far ahead of myself let me back up and explain what I’m talking about — I got to see an early showing of Big Hero 6 that was hosted by the great representatives at Disney, and they asked us to wait to review it. By respecting their wishes I’ve been sitting on this review for almost a month now, about to explode from the need to talk about this movie, because simply put, this movie is so good you have to talk about it! This is one of those movies where after you see it you have to go out and find people who have also seen it so you can all geek out over how fun it is, and then go and see it again of course. Read on for the full review below!
