Disney XD is developing a TV series adaptation of its 2014 animated feature “Big Hero 6” which will premiere on the cable network in 2017.
Picking up immediately after the events of the film, the new series will further the adventures of 14-year-old tech wunderkind Hiro and his medical robot-turned-cuddly hero Baymax.
Hiro will face “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.”
Characters like Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Fred, and Go Go will also return for the show which “Kim Possible” creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley will executive produce.
