News about a possible Big Hero 6 sequel have made their rounds and several plot rumors have surfaced indicating that the sequel might be darker than the first one. Meanwhile, Roy Conli revealed that the world of Big Hero 6 will be featured in Kingdom Hearts 3.
As reported by MNR Daily, Tadashi might come back as the villain Sunfire in the upcoming film. Even though he was assumed dead in the previous film, reports suggest that he might come back as a villain with powers of his own. Many speculate that he might come back as the mutant, Sunfire, whose capabilities include projecting plasma out of his hands.
Meanwhile, speculations have also surfaced that the sequel might be much darker than previous film. As reported by Movie News Guide, the recently released black painted action figures of the characters could be a hint that the upcoming film might be darker than the first one. Other rumors also suggest that it might be a visual representation of Hiro's struggle of having to fight his own brother.
But even as the waiting game for new details continue, Roy Conli, producer from Walt Disney Animated Studios, fans can have a sneak peek of the world of Big Hero 6 in the upcoming third sequel of the game franchise Kingdom Hearts 3.
Conli also pointed out that the film and game franchise both share the themes of friendship and light over darkness. Also, as reported by Screenrant, Sora will enter the world that Hiro and the gang live in and the game will take place after the events of the first film.
Pertaining to the sequel's plot, not much has been officially revealed yet, but Big Hero 6 directors, Don Hall and Chris Williams assured fans that they will work on the sequel only if they have a good story to tell, and won't force producing it solely for money.
"John Lasseter's [chief creative officer] very supportive of the directors, and he won't force them to put out a sequel unless they have a story that [they are] really excited about. It has to feel like a story that really has to be told, or deserves to be told. It can't be just cashing in on the success of a previous film." Hall said.
More details about the upcoming Big Hero 6 sequel are expected to be revealed as production progress.
