How does Hiro find healing and move forward after losing his brother?

Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright talk about the stages of grief as seen in Big Hero 6 as Baymax and Hiro’s friends help him through his grief and find healing and meaning after loss. They talk about the themes of choosing who we want to be and how Hiro’s grief process helps him figure out who he wants to be, honoring the departed, the brother relationship between Hiro and Tadashi, and the truly incredible animation and physical comedy of Baymax. Also, this movie broke us. (Yes, there are tears. #cryingwithalan)
