AN INTERVIEW WITH JAMIE CHUNG FOR THE BLU-RAY, DIGITAL HD AND DVD RELEASE OF BIG HERO 6
Big Hero 6 is an action-packed comedy-adventure about a robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada. This 14-year-old hero learns to harness his genius, thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends.
When a devastating turn of events catapults the gang into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion – a robot named Baymax – and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery.
Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, and it’s produced by Roy Conli. With the Blu-ray, Digital HD and DVD about to be released, we talk to actress Jamie Chung to find out more…
How would you describe the story of Big Hero 6?
JAMIE CHUNG: Big Hero 6 follows the story of a group of friends who join together to solve a huge mystery. At the heart of the story is a big, white, inflatable medical robot named Baymax and a kid called Hiro. Baymax is the most loveable robot you’ll ever meet!
The movie is filled with crazy gadgets and gizmos. What are your favorites?
JAMIE CHUNG: The purse is amazing! It reminds me of Penny’s book from Inspector Gadget.
How many recording sessions did you have for the movie?
JAMIE CHUNG: I worked on the movie for about a year and I used to do one or two sessions every month. The longest session was six hours long, but most of them are much shorter than that. I’m sure it’s different for Scott Adsit and Ryan Potter, who play Baymax and Hiro. They had a lot more lines than us.
Who are your biggest heroes?
JAMIE CHUNG: Who is my biggest hero? This sounds so cliché, but it’s definitely my mom – especially in terms of sacrifices and selflessness.
What would you do if you were a superhero for the day?
JAMIE CHUNG: For the sake of the drought in California, I would love the power to control the weather. I would make it rain a lot. We’d sort out the drought in no time.
Why should we watch Big Hero 6?
JAMIE CHUNG: Big Hero 6 is a story about family and it’s a story about friendship – but the movie is action packed and it’s got a lot of heart, so there’s something for everyone. It’s hilarious, too. It’s awesome!
