Big Hero 6 is an animated action adventure produced by the Walt Disney Studios. It’s the story of a special bond that develops between a plus-sized inflatable robot named Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada, who team up with a group of friends to form a band of high-tech heroes.
“Family Fun & Flix gives families the opportunity to visit our Union County parks, enjoy a free movie, and take part in activities that promote healthy habits for children,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Mohamed S. Jalloh.”
