Following the popular Big Hero 6 animated movie, a new animated TV series is on its way to Disney XD in 2017.
The series picks up immediately following the events in the film. Hiro is the newest prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, and he faces daunting academic challenges …. not to mention the social trials of being the little man on campus. Off campus, the stakes are raised for Big Hero 6 as they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.
The villains for the series are unknown, but Hiro will be joined by Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Fred, Go Go and Baymax .
“Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid, unique characters,” says Disney Channel President Gary Marsh. “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 movie premiered in 2014 and made over $650 million worldwide.
