Big Hero 6 is one of Disney Animation’s most recent hits. The film resonated with audiences as an exciting, colorful loose-adaptation of the Marvel Comics team – much of which is thanks to the film’s lovable characters.
The “boy and his dog” trope has been done to death so many times through literature, cinema and television. Thankfully, Big Hero 6 made sure that the central relationship between Hiro Hamada and Baymax was simultaneously hilarious and endearing enough to bring some exciting action to the screen.
By the time Big Hero 6 ended, fans were left wanting to see more adventures with Hiro, Baymax and the rest of their team that consists of GoGo Tomago, Honey Lemon, Wasabi and Fred. Thankfully, Disney XD will premiere Big Hero 6: The Series, which will utilize traditional animation and will take place immediately after the events of the original film.
Disney XD has released the official title intro for the new series, which you can watch down below:
Here’s the synopsis for Big Hero 6: The Series.
As the new kid at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro faces daunting academic challenges at the prestigious “nerd school” and the social trials of being the “little man on campus.” Luckily, Hiro has his brains, his ingenuity and his best friend bot to help him find his way. But it’s off campus where things get dangerous. Along with neat freak Wasabi, bubbly mad scientist Honey Lemon, fanboy Fred and no nonsense Go Go, the friends form an unlikely, but awesome super hero team – Big Hero 6. Together they face madness and mayhem as a colorful array of science-enhanced villains threaten San Fransokyo.
Big Hero 6: The Series will premiere this Fall on Disney XD.

7 Animated Marvel Movies That Should Be Made
There are a lot of great Marvel stories that won’t get live-action adaptations. Now, DC dominates the animated movie side of things, but now that Marvel has Disney behind them they should start developing a few direct-to-video projects.
Sony is releasing an animated Spider-Man movie in 2018 featuring Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker, a smart way to introduce the fun character to a larger audience. Some stories just don’t need live-action adaptions, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be turned into animated features. Modern 2D animation is looking better than ever, and I think the Mouse House need to invest a little bit of time into these endeavors.
So here are my top 7 Marvel stories that should be turned into animated movies. I know some of these characters might be owned by studios other than Disney, so Fox and Sony should be paying attention also. Are yours not on the list?
