After a solid year of previews, clips, and hints at what’s to come. However, we officially have a premiere date! Monday, November 20th at 8pm on Disney Channel and Disney XD will be the premiere of Big Hero 6 The Series: Baymax Returns.
The one-hour premiere will focus on Hiro’s recreation of Baymax using the chip he finds at the end of the film. (Sorry if that spoiled anything, but you’ve had 3 years to watch. I have no sympathy for you.)
Here’s the official description of the premiere from Disney:
“Set in the fictional city of San Fransokyo, “Baymax Returns” explores the moment in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Academy Award-winning feature film after Hiro believes that his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax is lost in the portal forever and discovers the chip his brother Tadashi designed to create Baymax. 14-year-old tech genius Hiro begins school as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology and sets off to rebuild Baymax, but his overconfidence and penchant for taking shortcuts leads him and the newly minted Big Hero 6 team – Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred – into trouble.”
Well, that sounds like a fun start! After the one hour premiere, we’ll have to wait a few months before actual episodes start premiering. Early 2018 will see weekly episodes released on Disney XD, but the Disney Now app will have two episodes premiere immediately following the one-hour episode.
All I know is that I’m excited. The clips we’ve seen are great and the intro song has been stuck in my head for months. Be sure to check out the premiere on November 20th!
