Big Hero 6 (2014, PG)

After the death of his brother, Tadashi, young tech whizz Hiro teams up with a group of young scientists and his brother's medical robot, Baymax, to find the person who caused the accident which resulted in Tadashi's death. Hiro learns about making the most of his potential and how to cope with grief. A bright, innovative and inspiring animation from Disney.


This resource includes watching questions, questions about Disney's writing process, and a STEM task on creating your own problem-solving invention. We recommend this workbook would be most suitable for Primary 5-7 although we are happy for you to use as you see fit.

Big Hero 6 is currently available to watch on Disney Plus. This film is a PG due to mild threat and scary scenes. This film also handles the subject of grief.
