  • Yes, I know that Once Upon a Time has started a trend on the show were story archs involve main stream Disney films and characters (Frozen, Maleficant, 101 Dalmations, ect.) and they seem to fit into everything that has happened in Storybrooke pretty well. But, If this is the case, maybe they would give Big Hero 6 it's own storyline on the show and add some twists to some of the characters from the movie? What do you think? Which Big Hero 6 Character do you think Emma could find common grounds with? Who would be arch's main villian?

    • It will never happen. Once Upon a Time is an urban fantasy, and Big Hero 6 is a superhero movie. It wouldn't fit, because it's a completely different genre. But, I get the feeling that explanation won't satisfy the overly-picky users around here, so let me go into even more detail about why Big Hero 6 will never get an arc in Once Upon a Time.

      Yes, I know 101 Dalmatians was not a fantasy. But, its setting was normal enough that they could fit it in with Once Upon a Time's mythology without too much trouble. 101 Dalmatians was set in 18th century London, and featured a spotlight-stealing fashionista as the main villain. It did not feature anything especially out of the ordinary for the time period it was set in. By that, I mean it did not feature anything fantastic. So, it was not too hard to re-work the setting to fit into an urban fantasy series.

      Big Hero 6 is an action sci-fi film featuring robots and pocket dimensions. All of the amazing feats accomplished in the film are done using advanced technology. Advanced technology is a little far removed from Once Upon a Time’s fantasy theme. Baymax would be a bit out of place interacting with Captain Hook and the Evil Queen. Now, you could say that Once Upon a Time’s cosmology includes many different worlds based on many different eras, so it would not be entirely impossible to assume that a futuristic environment could exist in the show's universe. However, that is ignoring two thing. Number one, introducing sci-fi elements in a fantasy show could be perceived as a "jump the shark" moment, and the show would lose viewership. Which means it will be less profitable. Which means it's too much of a risk for network executives to allow. Number two, the show is called Once Upon a Time. When you go into a show called Once Upon a Time, viewers tend to have certain expectations. Specifically, they expect something oriented around fantasy. Introducing something more sci-fi oriented like Big Hero 6 could be a little off-putting to new viewers.

      I really, really shouldn't have to go into so much detail in order to explain something so obvious.

    • That would be interesting, but I doubt it will happen.

      Unlike the previous two people who posted here, yes, I do believe that Big Hero 6 can make it into the series for two reasons. Firstly, Victor Frankenstein is from another era that isn't "fairytale" storybrooke. He believes in science as opposed to magic. The Big Hero 6 gang can be in a similar category. San Fransokyo can be its own world like Oz, Wonderland and Neverland.

      Secondly, Big Hero 6 is too popular not to be featured. And before people make the claim "Big Hero 6 is Marvel", technically, the comic is Marvel. Besides, Disney's Big Hero 6 is not canon to the Marvel universe, rather, it is canon to the Disney Animation universe. What this means is that Disney's Big Hero 6 can be implemented into Once Upon A Time with no problem.

      Back to topic, Here's how I think OUAT will represent Big Hero 6...

      Hiro Hamada: Hiro would most likely be Henry's friend as they are relatively the same age. Hiro would probably want to enlighten Henry on how to be nerdy and tech-orientated. However, what Henry fails to realise is that Hiro wants Henry to be a part of a criminal syndicate that is led by Mr. Yama. This is because Hiro wants to have someone his age to relate to in the gang. He would tell Henry about his stories of him and Tadashi in the adoption centre... Hiro needed to have Baymax re-construted to give to Mr. Yama as he requested it as part of his ultimate plan.

      Baymax: Baymax is going to be Tadashi's breakthrough creation. Whilst growing up, he wanted to create a healthcare robot to serve San Fransokyo's children centre (an adoption building). His creation is special in that it will be the very first robot to have self-programmed artifical intellegence. Hiro aided in the majority of Baymax's creation. Unfortunately, without Tadashi's permission, Hiro completed Baymax and registered Baymax under his name. Because of this, Baymax has been programmed to serve Hiro and they start to bond with each-other.

      Tadashi Hamada: This is the character that would be closest to Mary Margaret and David. He would be the tour guide for the Storybrooke gang as they would need guidance and advice. Tadashi needs advice and assistance from Mary Margaret and David on how to build his upcoming project: Baymax as Hiro is too busy with bot-fighting in order to help him out. Tadashi can reflect on his and Hiro's experience of being orphans which can be valuable advice. Tadashi is in a relationship with Abigail but is unaware of her true intentions as Mr. Yama's right hand lady. Tadashi is unaware of Hiro's gang affiliation with Mr. Yama

      Fred: Fred is another person that would be with the Storybrooke gang. He would be hanging out with the side characters like The Seven Dwarves and Granny. He'd be the person that states all the news that is happening within San Fransokyo. Fred is Tadashi's closest friend. His personality would be directly from the movie and he'd usually be allied with the gang. He would be suspicious of Abigail, however, he keeps it to himself until he has concerete evidence. Fred is unaware of Hiro's gang affiliation with Mr. Yama

      Abigail Callaghan: Tadashi's girlfriend and one of the villains of OUAT. A talented hacker, her motivation is to over-ride San Fransokyo's technology to do her bidding. She believes that San Fransokyo is unfairly benefits the rich in expense of the poor, so, to help eradicate this issue, she collaborate with Mr. Yama in secret in order to take control of the city. Robert Callaghan adopted her and took good care of her under her presence. Callaghan's family was rich, however, as Callaghan was also a commanding officer for San Fransokyo's army, he had to leave home, and so, she was psychologically abused by her adoptive mother and sister whilst he was away as they reveal that they would never accept Abigail into their high class family. After she ran away from her "family", she eventually met Mr. Yama and they both bonded by their shared hatred of the upper class of San Fransokyo.

      Mr. Yama: The "obvious" villain in OUAT. Mr. Yama is the Scarface/Al Capone of Once Upon A Time. This Gangster makes vast amounts of profit out of bot-fighting and looting from his lackeys. His background is that he comes from a rich and wealthy family, however, because he was hospitable towards a homeless family and his family did not accept that, he was kicked out from his family. Angered by the ideology of the rich, he vowed to reconstruct the mentality of the more fortunate by running an underground crime syndicate to swear revenge on the rich. The specialty about Mr. Yama is that he is associated with Hook as he was the person that was able to provide him the finance necessary to be able to pay the salary of his pirates. In return, he wants Hook to have David and Mary Maragret killed or he'll kill Henry.
