The Movieguide Awards make its way to Hollywood once again to celebrate its happy, friendly & positive movies. This year, we were able to meet the producer of Big Hero 6, Brad Simonsen, and animator, Nathan Engelhardt & talk to them about their movie’s screening at the awards. Simonsen admits that he is honored to be a part of an uplifting event that he and his family support all the time. He goes on saying he is grateful to continue the legacy at Disney with Big Hero 6 and Frozen & wishes success upon another movie he has in the works, Zootopia, coming in Spring of 2016, which has a “beautiful theme” like the rest of the movies he produced. When asked to describe Big Hero 6, Engelhardt mentions that the movie touches themes like having strong friendships & never feeling alone; plus, they mix in with Marvel-like action scenes. For those who have not seen the movie, check it out. It is a heart-warming kind of movie. We look forward to their next project, Zootopia, coming out next year.
