‘Big Hero 6: The Series’ is an American superhero comedy show that airs on the Disney Channel. It first premiered on November 20, 2017. The show has been produced by Disney Television Animation and has been developed by Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, the creators of ‘Kim Possible’. Schooley and McCorkle also serve as executive producers along with Nick Filippi.
The show is based on the 2014 Disney movie, ‘Big Hero 6’, which won the Oscar for the best-animated feature. The film itself is based on the comics of the same name, which is published by Marvel Comics. The events of the series pick up after the events shown in the film and have traditional hand-drawn animation. The series was initially planned on being released on Disney XD before being moved to the Disney Channel. It is centered around Hiro who must prove his scientific knowledge academically while trying to be a hero at the same time.
While the series has definitely garnered fans, critics have not been as open with praising it, as they were with the movie. The humor in the series does stand out as heartfelt, but it somehow falls a bit short when it comes to characterization. Anyway, despite the criticism, the show has been renewed for another season. Here’s everything we know about it.
