Remember in 2014 when the world gave us Big Hero 6, the first superhero film to win an Academy Award? Well true believers, we're getting more of San Fransokyo's favorite superhero team. A Big Hero 6 animated series is coming to Disney XD. It will follow the events of the film as Hiro attends the Institute of Technology facing academic challenges while the team protects the city from scientifically enhanced villains. Currently set for a 2017 release, Kim Possible alums Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley, and Nick Filippi will create the series.
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 potential sequel. MTV spoke to Honey Lemon actress Genesis Rodriguez who admitted that there were talks going on but nothing definitive. This could be the results of those talks, or something to keep fan interest until the sequel eventually comes.
