Ready to be excited Big Hero 6 fans? Disney recently announced that a sequel to the smash hit film will arrive in the form of an animated television show, set to air on Disney XD platforms sometime in 2017!
Gary Marsh, Disney Channels Worldwide President, said in a statement, “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…”
The Big Hero 6 TV show will pick up directly where the movie left off, with young Hiro Hamada facing “daunting academic challenges” and “social trials” on the campus of the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, while also helping his friends keep San Fransokyo safe from “an array of scientifically enhanced villains.”
