We’re not sure how much you like Big Hero 6 (personally, I felt as though it was the best Spider-Man movie I’ve ever seen) but the 2014 top grossing and Best Animated Feature Film, based on a Marvel comic, is headed to Disney XD in the form of a brand new animated series set to hit TV screens in 2017. The series is being executive produced by a couple of Disney Channel alums, Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley (Kim Possible).
The Big Hero 6 series will feature Hiro Hamada, his healthcare companion, Baymax, and the rest of the Big Hero 6 team immediately following the events of the film. 14-year-old Hiro is to face “social trials” on the campus of San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, while the team of heroes faces “an array of scientifically enhanced villains.” throughout the city.
This isn’t the sequel that was hinted at last year by Marvel’s very own Stan Lee, and no word on how this might affect that. But here’s hoping we get both!
