Big Hero 6 will be hitting out television sets in 2017.

Disney XD will be adapting the Oscar winning film into an animated series with Kim Possibles creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley heading up it’s development. The show has already entered production and is slated for a 2017 premiere.

The Hollywood reporter have released the following plot summary of the new animated series:

“The series picks up immediately following the events in the movie, and continues the adventures of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his robot Baymax. Joining the pair on their journey is control freak Wasabi, scientist Honey Lemon, fanboy Fred and no-nonsense Go Go, who together form the Big Hero 6 superhero team. As the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro faces daunting academic challenges, not to mention the social trials of being the little man on campus. The stakes are also raised for the high-tech heroes when they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.”

No further information or artwork has been released but we are hoping for a similar aesthetic to the film – that should mean plenty more instances of Baymax getting to grip with the human world is now very much a part of.
