Disney has revealed plans to launch a major new TV series based on the popular Big Hero 6 series. In preparation for that television event, Disney DX and the Disney Channel will both air a new hour-long movie titled Baymax Returns, which is comprised of several short pieces all intended to build up support and hype for the Big Hero 6 series premiere.
On course to air on television in November, Baymax Returns will serve as a sort of “prequel” for the 2018 arrival of the Big Hero 6 TV series. Put together by Disney Animation Studios, the Marvel-created Big Hero 6 series is based on the Academy Award winning film of the same name. Along with the aforementioned productions, a pair of special, fully-formed preview episodes of the television series will also be available only on the DisneyNOW app and Disney XD VOD. Baymax Returns will take place after the narrative of the movie, and connect the dots between the film and the TV series.
You can expect Baymax Returns to air on Disney XD and Disney Channel on November 20, 2017.
