The first season of the Big Hero 6 TV series hasn’t actually aired, but Disney XD is all-in. They’ve already greenlit a second season of the show that’s spun-off from the excellent 2014 film.
The first season of Big Hero 6 will hit our screens in Spring 2018 and comes from Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Nick Filippi, the creative team behind Kim Possible.
Delightfully, some of the cast of the original film is back, so we’ve got Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass, Jamie Chung as Go Go, Scott Adsit as Baymax, Ryan Potter as Hiro, Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon and Alan Tudyk as Alistair Krei all returning. The new additions include Khary Payton as Wasabi, Brooks Wheelan as Fred, David Shaughnessy as Heathcliff and the big guy himself, Stan Lee is back as Fred’s dad.
The show is a sequel to the movie, and “picks up immediately following the events of the feature film and continues the adventures and friendship of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax. Along with their friends Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred, they form the legendary superhero team Big Hero 6 and embark on high-tech adventures as they protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains. In his normal day-to-day life, Hiro faces daunting academic challenges and social trials as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.”
Big Hero 6: The Series will air on Disney XD in Spring 2018. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
