After the amazing year it had, we knew we would see Big Hero 6 again in some form. It appears today Disney has confirmed that an animated Big Hero 6 TV series will premiere on Disney XD in 2017.
The original film won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film in 2015. This series will join the Marvel heavy roster on Disney XD, alongside Ultimate Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Avengers Assemble.
“Here’s what we know so far: 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.”
No word on who the villains will be, but one thing is confirmed, all of the heroes including the lovable Baymax is returning!
