Marvel's "Big Hero 6" is heading to the big screen. According to EW, Disney Animation is at work on the animated film about a Japanese super team.

Created in 1998, "Big Hero 6" is a spin-off of sorts from "Alpha Flight." Assembled by the Japanese government, members have included Sunfire, a one-time member of the X-Men, Silver Samurai, a foe of Wolverine and Fred, a Godzilla-esque monster.

According to EW, "Big Hero 6" is in early development. Its On The Grid reports no writer is attached, but "Kung Fu Panda's" Kristina Reed will produce. Blue Sky Disney, a fan site, reports "Winnie the Pooh" director Don Hall will direct.

"Big Hero 6" will likely join "Guardians of the Galaxy" as one of the non-"Avengers" flicks in development. Marvel is already at work on "Iron Man 3" with "Thor 2" and "Captain America 2" also heading for production.
