Prior to the Season 2 premiere of ‘Big Hero 6: The Series’ in May, the Disney Channel has ordered a third helping of Hiro, Baymax, Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go, and Fred. The first season consisted of 22 episodes and began airing in November 2017. The second season arrives on May 6.
‘Big Hero 6: The Series’ is based on the 2014 animated theatrical film of the same name, with most of the voice cast reprising their roles. Ryan Potter (Beast Boy on DC Universe’s ‘Titans’) voices 14-year-old genius Hiro Hamada, with Scott Adsit as Baymax, Jamie Chung as Go Go Tomago, Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon, Khary Payton as Wasabi, Brooks Wheelan as Fred, Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass, David Shaughnessy as Heathcliff, and Alan Tudyk as Alistair Krei, with Stan Lee making cameos as Fred’s father. Sadly that probably won’t continue. Payton replaced Damon Wayans Jr., who voiced Wasabi in the film, while Brooks Whelan replaced T.J. Miller as Fred. Season 3 will include guest voices provided by Christy Carlson Romano, Andy Richter, Jenifer Lewis, Haley Tju, and Mara Wilson.
Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Nick Filippi, the team behind previous Disney animated hit ‘Kim Possible’, serve as executive producers.
It is known that in Season 2, Hiro and his friends/teammates will receive new upgraded armor to help them in their battle to protect San Fransokyo. When they are are not battling scientifically-enhanced supervillains, they attend the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, where Hiro sometimes has trouble fitting in due to his age.
The ‘Big Hero 6′ movie was the highest-grossing animated film of 2014, and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and the Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Animated Movie. The TV series has received two Emmy nominations, and an Annie nomination. The series varies from the movie by being traditional 2D cel animation instead of CGI.
