Baymax Returns in New ‘Big Hero 6’ Animated Series Sneak Peek
Disney’s Big Hero 6 promotion has been pretty off and on after debuting its opening credits and a first clip, but the team is finally back in action. A new sneak peek gives us our best look yet at the sequel series, along with new and returning voice cast.
The series hasn’t yet set an official November premiere date, but we at least know it’s already renewed for Season 2. The newest sneak peek from Disney XD also gives us a better idea of how the team looks in a 2D animation style, while simultaneously adding the subtitle “Baymax Returns” for a likely event premiere. Here’s the synopsis:
The series picks up immediately following the events in the feature film, and continues the adventures and friendship of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax. Alongside Hiro and Baymax on their journey are control freak Wasabi, scientist Honey Lemon, fanboy Fred and no-nonsense Go Go, who together form the legendary superhero team, Big Hero 6.
As the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro now faces 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.
Returning from the original film will be Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass, Jamie Chung as GoGo Tomago, Scott Adsit as Baymax, Ryan Potter as Hiro, Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon, David Shaughnessy as Fred’s butler Heathcliff, and Stan Lee as his father. The Walking Dead star Khary Payton will take over for Damon Wayans Jr. as Wasabi, with SNL’s Brooks Wheelan filling in for T.J. Miller as Fred.
New to the series are Sherlock star Andrew Scott as the villainous “Obake,” Andy Richter as Globby, Jenifer Lewis as Professor Granville, 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.
