Big Hero 6 moves to the small screen!
The adventures of Hiro, Baymax, and the rest of the Big Hero 6 team are heading to Disney XD.
Fans of the Oscar-winning 2014 Disney film based on the Marvel comics have been looking forward to word of the eventual sequel teased by the aftercredits scene. According to Entertainment Weekly, that sequel will now come in the form of a new animated series, picking up right where the film left off!
Picking up immediately after the events of the 2014 film, the new series will further the adventures of 14-year-old tech wunderkind Hiro and his medical robot-turned-cuddly hero Baymax. Hiro, now something of a legend at the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, will face “daunting academic challenges and the social trials of being the little man on campus. Off campus, the stakes are raised for the high-tech heroes as they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.”
The other core characters from the film — including Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Fred, and Go Go — will also return, lest there be no eponymously-named superhero team, Big Hero 6.
The series is set to hit screens next year, with no solid premier date announced as yet. Here’s hoping they can wrangle as many of the original voice actors featured in the film back into the studio on an ongoing basis!
