Meet Baymax Again on Disney XD in 2017!

Did you love Baymax, Hiro, and their friends—control freak Wasabi, scientist Honey Lemon, fanboy Fred, and no-nonsense Go Go—so much that you’ve found yourself longing for more of their adventures? Disney XD made your wishes come true today with the announcement that an animated television series based on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Oscar®-winning feature film inspired by the Marvel comics, Big Hero 6, will premiere on the network and its platforms in 2017.

The series’ creators and executive producers are Emmy® Award-winning producers Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley—of Kim Possible fame—and they’ll be joined by their Kim Possible colleague Nick Filippi, who serves as executive producer and supervising director. 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 compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax. As the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro now faces daunting academic challenges and the social trials of being the little man on campus. Off campus, the stakes are raised for the high-tech heroes as they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.

San Fransokyo, here we come!
