Disney XD has given a second season order to Big Hero 6: The Series ahead of its Season 1 debut this coming fall.
The all-new animated show is based on Walt Disney Animation Studios' 2014 feature film, which is inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name. Scott Adsit, Alan Tudyk, Ryan Potter, Genesis Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Jamie Chung, David Shaughnessy and Stan Lee are all set to reprise their roles from the Big Hero 6 film.
Joining the original cast will be newcomers Khary Payton as Wasabi and Brooks Wheelan as everyone's favorite superhero fanboy Fred. Additional guest cast will include the likes of Jenifer Lewis as Professor Granville; Andrew Scott as the villain Obake; comedian Andy Richter as Globby; Diedrich Bader as Bluff Dunder; Susan Sullivan as Fred's mother; Sean Giambrone as Richardson Mole; John Ross Bowie as Mel; and Haley Tju as Karmi.
The show picks up immediately after the events of the movie and continues the adventures and friendship of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax. Along with their friends Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred, they form the legendary superhero team Big Hero 6 and embark on high-tech adventures as they protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.
Hiro will also face daunting academic challenges and social trials as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.
Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Nick Filippi, who previously worked on the Disney Channel series Kim Possible, are executive producing the new show. Filippi will also serve as supervising director for the Disney Television Animation production.
Big Hero 6 was named the best animated film at the 2015 Oscars, and would go on to gross a very impressive $657.8-Million at the worldwide box office.
