Hiro and Baymax captured our hearts on the big screen, but it’s not over yet.
Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide announced today a Big Hero 6 animated TV series based off the hit movie that will continue the stories and adventures in San Fransokyo. Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, the creators and executive producers behind Disney Channel series “Kim Possible,” will be serving as executive producers.
“Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid, unique characters. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to further develop these characters into a world class animated series — full of fun, action and the kind of endearing storytelling that only Mark, Bob — and Baymax — can deliver.”
The 2017 premiere of Big Hero 6 on Disney XD will also feature the return of control freak Wasabi, scientist Honey Lemon, fanboy Fred and no-nonsense Go Go, who together form the legendary superhero team, Big Hero 6, alongside Hiro and Baymax.
As the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro now faces 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.
