Very sweet messages about honoring the memory of the departed, recognizing the importance of healing, encouraging the furthering of a legacy, seeking justice versus revenge, and surrounding yourself with friends and family when you're going through a tough time. Hiro's grief journey will show kids that getting through tragedy is sad but possible with a little help from those who love you. The movie also stresses education, particularly in science and technology. A bit of "fat" humor centered on Baymax's size and round belly, but it doesn't feel mean spirited. Major theses include empathy, courage, curiosity, and teamwork.
Positive Role Models & Representations
"Nerd" is used, but mostly in a positive way ("nerd school," "nerd lab," "just a bunch of nerds").
Related merchandise/tie-ins are available in stores: figurines, plush dolls, games, books, apparel, and more.
Ease of Play
No overt alcohol or drug use (although adults do consume drinks at a reception), but Baymax acts "drunk" when his battery life is depleted.
