LOS ANGELES, Feb 22 (Reuters) - - Disney Animation's "Big Hero 6," a comic book-inspired tale of a teen science genius who befriends a huggable robot and forms a superhero team, won the Oscar for best animated feature film on Sunday.

This is the second consecutive Academy Award win in the animated feature category for Walt Disney Co's <DIS.N> animation studios, which won the Oscar last year for musical blockbuster "Frozen."
