During the Credits
The first three minutes of the credits of Big Hero 6 are presented with various manga-style 2D animations of characters and things from the film and some newspaper headlines and stories, including:
“College Genius Awarded Grant: College Grant given to Hiro Hamada,” “Big Hero 6 Saves Orpha-“, and “Tadashi Hamada Building Opening,” “Robot Stops Runaway Cable Car.”
The next five and a half minutes of the credits roll over the final 2D animation.
After the Credits
There is an extra scene at the end of the credits of Big Hero 6. It begins about eight and a half minutes after the credits start and lasts about one minute.
As he stares up at the family portrait in his mansion, Fred says, “Dad, I just wish I could share my accomplishments with you. You mean so much to me, and honestly, I’ve always felt a distance what with you being on the family island all the time, and… I just wish you could see how-“ He inadvertently activates a secret panel when he touches the painting. The wall slides open to reveal a small room stocked with superhero costumes, weapons, gadgets, and a control center. Fred enters the secret room, and as he inspects one of the underwear, he’s startled by a voice behind him. Fred turns around and sees a figure standing in the shadow of the doorway, and when the man steps toward Fred and into the light of the secret room, it is revealed to be his father, who looks like and is voiced by Stan Lee. “Son,” he says. “Dad?” asks Fred. His dad picks up the underwear and says, “I wear ’em front! I wear ’em back!…” Together, the father and son finish Fred’s underwear quote from earlier in the film: “I go inside out, then I go front and back!” Fred hugs his dad, who says, “We have a lot to talk about!”
After the stinger, there’s about half a minute of running time that includes one last credit for the extra scene and finally the typical studio logos.
