Disney’s new animated series Big Hero 6: The Series will launch on Saturday, June 9th according to COMINGSOON.net. It will launch with back to back episodes the first on Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT and the second one on Sunday morning at the same time. Following the premiere weekend, new episodes will debut every Saturday through September and will be available on the Disney Channel, DisneyNow and Disney Channel VOD platforms.
Big Hero 6: The Series is based on the Academy Award winning animated feature film Big Hero 6. The series will continue to follow the 14 year old genius Hiro alongside his robot Baymax as they journey into high tech adventures protecting their home city from scientifically enhanced villains. Joining them on their adventures will be their friends Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred.
Executive producers McCorkle and Schooley had this to say about the new series:
“The ‘Big Hero 6: The Series’ crew has been busy cooking up exciting new adventures for Hiro, his best friend Baymax, and the rest of the Big Hero 6 team as they continue their journey together in San Fransokyo. We cannot wait for the audience to come along for the fast and funny ride.”
The cast for the animated series is made up of Maya Rudoph as Aunt Cass, Ryan Potter as Hiro, Scott Adsit as Baymax, Jaime Chung as Go Go, Alan Tudyk as Alistair Krei, Khary Payton as Wasabi, Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon, Brooks Wheelan as Fred and as Fred’s dad the legendary Stan Lee.
Big Hero 6 was a great film and it would be interesting to see the team back in action. With a series like this on television it would be safe to say that there probably isn’t a sequel to the film coming up anytime soon. Either way it looks to be a great show to share with your kids.
