Maya Rudolph Joins BIG HERO 6, Is Likely Voicing Honey Lemon
TheWrap is reporting another awesome addition to the voice cast of Marvel and Disney's Big Hero 6. Comedian Maya Rudolph (SNL, Bridesmaids, Idiocracy) has taken an unnamed lead role in the animated film. I have to assume the role is team member Honey Lemon, as Leyu Yoshida/Sunpyre is owned by Fox (unless they're able to share the character). The film co-directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, already has TJ Miller voicing Fred and Jamie Chung is voicing GoGo Tomago. It's release date is set for November 7th, 2014.
“Big Hero 6” is a comedic action-adventure movie about brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion — a robot named Baymax — Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city.”
