The second glimpse released to the world of Disney’s upcoming animated adaption of the Marvel superhero property Big Hero 6 is more than a little topical, showing Hiro Hamada and Baymax enjoying a little soccer in time for the start of the World Cup — or, at least, trying to.

The fourteen-second clip was released to the Big Hero 6 Facebook page on Thursday, coinciding with the opening matches of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. While the animation of Hiro keeping his ball in the air is new, Baymax being unable to pick up his own ball due to his build may look somewhat familiar to anyone who saw the first teaser for the movie, released last month.

STORY: Disney Releases First 'Big Hero 6' Trailer (Video)

Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams, and based on the Marvel superhero team of the same name. The movie is scheduled to open November 7. Now, here’s hoping we get to see Groot being a goalie (or maybe just a goal) to promote Guardians of the Galaxy before the soccer tournament finishes.
