‘Big Hero 6’ TV series is coming to Disney XD


The adventures of Hiro, Baymax and friends will continue on the small screen. Big Hero 6 is being adapted into an animated series which will air on Disney XD in 2017.

The series is set after the events of the movie with 14-year-old robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada trying to fit into San Fransokyo Institute of Technology. He’ll be one busy kid since he’ll also have to protect the city from an array of scientifically-enhanced villains with the help of the Big Hero 6 superhero team.

“Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid, unique characters,” president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide Gary Marsh said in a statement. “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 Big Hero 6 animated series is currently in production and is being developed by Kim Possible creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley.
