“Big Hero 6 The Series” is set for an epic debut on the Disney Channel with a premiere weekend event this summer.
The small screen adaptation of the hit Disney animated movie will kick off with back-to-back episodes on Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10 from 9:00-10:00 a.m. EDT/PDT.
Ryan Potter is set to reprise his role as 14-year-old robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada.
Jamie Chung will also be returning as the voice of electromagnetics specialist Go Go alongside her Big Hero 6 squad teammates Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), and Baymax (Scott Adsit). Khary Payton will be replacing Damon Wayans, Jr. for the role of Wasabi from the film while Brooks Wheelan will be in place of T.J. Miller for the character of Fred.
The star-studded voice cast also includes Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass, Alan Tudyk as Alistair Krei, David Shaughnessy as Heathcliff, and Stan Lee as Fred’s dad.
Episodes will broadcast every Saturday through September on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW, and Disney Channel VOD platforms.
The series’ plot will be a continuation of the events of the 2014 Disney film based on the Marvel comics’ title of the same name.
An hour-long television movie titled Baymax Returns premiered last November offered a glimpse of what is yet to come to the young heroes of San Fransokyo.
In anticipation of the weekend event coming in June, Baymax will also be featured in a series of shorts to be shown on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel YouTube beginning on May 1.
