Looks like Disney is following up on its success with obscure Marvel title Big Hero 6 with a newly announced animated series coming to Disney XD
The series looks to continue the narrative where the feature animation left off.
Hiro is the newest prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, and he faces daunting academic challenges …. not to mention the social trials of being the little man on campus. Off campus, the stakes are raised for Big Hero 6 as they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.
Disney Channel President Gary Marsh spoke on the news:
Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid, unique characters. 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 villains for the series are unknown, but Hiro will be joined by Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Fred, Go Go and Baymax.
Big Hero 6 TV series is slated to air in 2017 on Disney XD
