‘Big Hero 6′ fans can rejoice, because Disney have announced plans for an animated television show that will revolve around Baymax, Hiro and their posse. ‘Big Hero 6’s’ small-screen adaptation is still in the early stages of development, but the current plan is for it to premiere on Disney XD at some point in 2017. Disney and Marvel have also confirmed that the series will pick up immediately where the Academy Award winner for Best Animated Feature left off, adding that 14-year-old Hiro has become a hero figure at the San Fransokyo Institute Of Technology because of his antics alongside Baymax in ‘Big Hero 6′.
