Big Hero 6 is an upcoming television series set to follow the Academy Award winning film Big Hero 6. The series is currently set for a Fall 2017 release.
The series will immediately follow the events of the film. Hiro Hamada is the newest prodigy at the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology. He faces the usual academic challenges as well as being the new person on campus. Meanwhile, he still teams up with Baymax, Honey Lemon, Wasabi-No-Ginger, Fredzilla, and GoGo Tomago to protect the city as Big Hero 6 from various scientifically enhanced villains.
President and Chief Creative Officer of Disney Channels Worldwide Gary Marsh said "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."
It is unknown what this means for the film's potential sequel. MTV spoke to Honey Lemon actress Genesis Rodriguez who stated "We spoke during Oscar night and we're like, 'Well, maybe now that we got the Oscar, this might happen.' There's nothing definitive. There's talks of something happening. We just don't know what yet." This could be the results of those talks, or something to keep fan interest until the sequel eventually comes.
The cast was officially announced on November 3rd, 2016. Maya Rudolph, Jamie Chung, Scott Adsit, Alan Tudyk, Ryan Potter, Genesis Rodriguez, David Shaughnessy, and Stan Lee all reprise their roles from the film.
On March 14th, 2017, Disney XD renewed the series for a second season.
Starting November 24th, 2017, Disney will release six shorts each consecutive Friday.
On November 20th, 2017, DisneyNOW will launch an online application called Pocket Baymax. The program allows users to create a customizable, interactive virtual assistant.
