Disney greenlights Big Hero 6 TV series

Disney is developing an animated TV series based on the studio’s 2014 movie, Big Hero 6.

The Big Hero 6 animated series will debut on Disney XD in 2017 and is being developed by the creators of the hit Disney Channel show. Kim Possible.

“Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid unique characters," said Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide.

"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.”

Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series picks up immediately following the events in the feature film, and continues the adventures and friendship of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his cutting-edge robot Baymax.

Alongside Hiro and Baymax on their journey are control freak Wasabi, scientist Honey Lemon, fanboy Fred and no-nonsense Go Go, who together form the legendary superhero team, Big Hero 6.
