Disney XD has ordered a second season of Big Hero 6 The Series ahead of the show’s first-season debut this fall.
Inspired by the Marvel comics created by Man of Action, Big Hero 6 The Series is based on the Academy Award-winning Disney feature film that took home more than US$657 million at the global box office.
The series is executive produced by Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Nick Filippi, the team behind Disney Channel’s Kim Possible. It stars Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass, Jamie Chung as Go Go, Scott Adsit as Baymax, Ryan Potter as Hiro, Brooks Wheelan as Fred and comic book icon Stan Lee as Fred’s Dad.
The show’s first season picks up where the film left off and will continue to tell the story of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his best friend/robot Baymax.
