Big-Hero-6-Series

Amidst the plethora of news, throwbacks, and all-around Disney goodness shared at D23 Expo 2017 this past weekend were some first-look sneak peeks of two upcoming Disney XD programs.

First up, Big Hero 6: The Series. This follow-up to the 2014 Disney hit will switch the story to traditional 2D animation, but will still highlight the action-packed adventures in San Fransokyo of 14-year-old Hiro, his robot Baymax, and their hero squad. Just released, here’s the intro theme for the show:

Big Hero 6: The Series stars Ryan Potter as Hiro, Scott Adsit as Baymax, Jamie Chung as GoGo, Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon, Khary Payton as Wasabi, Brooks Wheelan as Fred, Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass, Alan Tudyk as Alistair Krei, David Shaughnessy as Heathcliff, and Stan Lee as Fred’s dad. The show premieres fall 2017.

Next up, as the calendar turns closer to the premiere of the DuckTales reboot, Disney released a clip from an episode called “Daytrip of Doom!” Here we see what everyday life is like in McDuck Manor with its new arrivals. Looks like everyone isn’t quite used to each other just yet!

 

DuckTales will debut at midnight on August 12 with an hour-long premiere entitled “Woo-oo!”, which will air for 24 hours straight on Disney XD. The official launch of the series will follow on September 23, the 30th anniversary of the original series. DuckTales stars David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck, Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck, Danny Pudi as Huey, Ben Schwartz as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan as Louie, Kate Micucci as Webby, Beck Bennett as Launchpad, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, and Lin-Manuel Miranda will guest star as Gizmoduck. (Don’t miss our recap of D23’s DuckTales panel!)

Both Big Hero 6: The Series and DuckTales are produced by Disney Television Animation.

  • I don’t care what anyone says. Song Of The Sea should’ve won the award for Best Animated Feature Of 2014; Not Big Hero 6. Also, Big Hero 6 was such a formulaic movie with no creative substance and I guaranteed that the upcoming series will be just as the same as the movie was. Then again, it’s Disney and Disney is known for not taking risks and breaking boundaries when it comes to telling new stories.

      Well I liked How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Boxtrolls equally. But Big Hero 6 was better. To each their own anyway

      • Harith Sami

        I think HTTYD2 was the better movie, in my opinion.
        What I was expecting from BH6 back then was the equivalent of Overwatch today, mostly the world building and some of the heroes.

        • Manuel Orozco

          Over watch? Whatever you say but at least HTTYD 2 was on par with 1

    • The superhero stuff was kinda formulaic. What made it unique was its focus
      on loss and how to deal with it. But yeah, I get where you are coming from.

      • Manuel Orozco

        And let’s not forget the racially diverse group of main characters.

  • Manuel Orozco

    Both shows are equally promising but I’m excited for Big Hero 6!

  • aquapyro

    It really is a blend of a Manga inspired and American comics mashup. Also there are thick black lines. Something you don’t that often these day

    • Manuel Orozco

      A refreshing animation style indeed. Probably might be the most exciting used of anime inspired western art since Avatar.

  • Yellow

    I don’t get why Ducktales isn’t premiering til September. Most kids are back at school by then.

    • Manuel Orozco

      I was hoping sooner too and would make the summer even more Disney packed than it has become so far.

  • Harith Sami

    If I made the BH6 series I will chose an animation that is more fluid and fast. You can see that the action parts in the intro (which is suppose to be exciting) feels limited in motion and frame-rate which is a negative when you have an action-based show.

  • Oh, it’s Donald’s bathing that crosses the line for Scrooge. XD

  • Lol that Ducktales clip was so awesome!! Seriously can’t wait for that show to premiere, like the hype is becoming real for me!
    Big Hero 6 feels a bit underwhelming for me for some reason but I am still remaining hopeful it’ll be another great Disney show, the story has so much potential! :DDDD

  • I like the art style they are going with for BH6. Ducktales clip was good also.
