Disney XD teasers offer looks at the upcoming animated Spider-Man and Big Hero 6 shows
Disney XD has today shared some teases of their upcoming Marvel animated series Big Hero 6 and Marvel’s Spider-Man. Check out both the Disney XD teasers in the players below alongside a third video that celebrates the channel’s upcoming slate.
Set to premiere in 2017, the Big Hero 6 series picks up immediately following the events of the feature film and continues the adventures and friendship of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax. Along with their friends Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred, they form the legendary superhero team Big Hero 6 and embark on high-tech adventures as they protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains. In his normal day-to-day life, Hiro faces daunting academic challenges and social trials as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.
Originally inspired by the Marvel comic of the same name created by Man of Action, the Big Hero 6 series will see the return of Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass; Jamie Chung as no-nonsense, speed genius Go Go; Scott Adsit as huggable robot Baymax; Alan Tudyk as tech guru Alistair Krei; Ryan Potter as tech genius Hiro; Genesis Rodriguez as quirky scientist Honey Lemon; David Shaughnessy as the butler Heathcliff; and Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee as Fred’s dad.
Joining the Big Hero 6 series are also Khary Payton and Brooks Wheelan Join as Wasabi and Fred, respectively. Those parts were originally voiced by Damon Wayans Jr. and T.J. Miller in the 2014 feature film.
Marvel’s Spider-Man, meanwhile, will tell the story of an unsure but courageous teen who has to figure out how to be a super hero from the very beginning. Look for both series to debut later this year on Disney XD.
