‘Big Hero 6’ Series Coming to Disney XD

A new animated television series based on Disney’s Oscar-winning feature film Big Hero 6 is now in production, heading for a 2017 premiere on Disney XD. Emmy-winning producers Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley — creators and EPs for Disney Channel’s Kim Possible — are serving as executive producers. They are joined by fellow Kim Possible alum Nick Filippi, who is also supervising director. The series was announced Wednesday by Disney Channels Worldwide president & CCO Gary Marsh.

“Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid, unique characters,” said 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 Big Hero 6 series, produced by Disney Television Animation, picks up immediately after the film’s events, continuing the adventures of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his friendly, cutting-edge robot companion, Baymax. Together with control freak Wasabi, scientist Honey Lemon, fanboy Fred and no-nonsense Go Go, they form the legendary superhero team: Big Hero 6. As a fresh-faced prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro faces daunting academic and social challenges, trumped only by the high stake threats facing the city rom scientifically enhanced villains.
