5 Reasons Why Inside Out is the More Feminine Version of Big Hero 6

I love both Inside Out and Big Hero 6. I highly recommend them both.

5 Reasons Why Inside Out is the More Feminine Version of Big Hero 6

But I couldn’t help but notice the similarites between the 2 movies. Generically, I would say that Inside Out is a little more feminine in that it’s ultimate a psychological thriller featuring a girl as the main character; contrasted to Big Hero 6, which is an action movie featuring a boy as the protagonist.

I feel so strongly about my theory that I figured it was worth sharing with the world, in the convenient package of 5 reasons Inside Out is the more feminine version of Big Hero 6.

  1. Both movies are made by Disney: Inside Out is Disney/Pixar; Big Hero 6 is Disney/Marvel.
  2. Both movies take place in San Francisco, which is a big part of the action.
  3. Both movies feature a sensitive, yet gender flexible protagonist. Inside Out‘s 11 year-old Riley is a hockey playing girl. In Big Hero 6, Hiro is a 14 year-old an artistic (not athletic) boy. Inside Out isn’t a girl movie, though I would imagine girls would choose to see it over Big Hero 6; and vice versa
  4. Both movies feature a team of 6 individuals who ultimately save the day. In Inside Out, the 6 are Riley (the protagonist herself), along with her 5 emotions: Joy, Sadnes, Fear, Disgust, and Anger. In Big Hero 6, the 6 are Hiro (the main character himself) along with Baymax, Fred, GoGo, Wasabi, and Honey Lemon.
  5. Both movies contain a lovable beast-like character who must sacrifice his own life in order to save everyone else: In Inside Out, it’s Bing Bong. In Big Hero 6, it’s Baymax.

While I’m sure I could come up with more similarities, those are the first 5 that came to mind. Do you agree with my analysis?

I feel that both movies are gender flexible, yet serve as an equal answer to each other.

Also, if you found any other similarities, feel free to share them.
