Big Hero 6: The Series
Big Hero 6: The Series is an animated series produced by Disney Television Animation, and based on the 2014 Disney movie Big Hero 6. It was created by Kim Possible creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley. The animation utilizes traditional 2D animation, rather than the 3D animation from the film.
The series continues the adventures of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro Hamada and his robot best friend Baymax. Joining the pair on their journey is neat freak and scaredy-cat Wasabi, chemistry scientist Honey Lemon, comic fanboy Fred, and athletic electromagnetical engineer Go Go Tomago, whom together form the Big Hero 6 superhero team. As the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro faces daunting academic challenges, not to mention the social trials of being the little man on campus. The stakes are also raised for the high-tech heroes when they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.
Why It Rocks
- It is very written, as it takes place after the events of the film, and continues the series from there.
- All of the characters from the film are still the same.
- Amazing traditional handdrawn animation.
- Amazing voice acting as all of the voice actors (except T.J. Miller and Damon Waynes Jr.) reprise their roles in this.
- There are even special guest stars like Stan Lee, and Gordon Ramsay.
- Very cool new villains like Obake. Yama also appears as a major antagonist.
- Great theme song
- Tadashi Hamada has not appeared in this show since he died at the beginning of the movie.
- It tries way too hard to be like one of THOSE shows sometimes
- Some toilet humor.
- Honey Lemon, GoGo and Wasabi are still pretty underdeveloped characters whose backgrounds and real names we don't even know about.
- Some characters look familiar to characters from other shows, movies or video games.
- To lesser the extent point, Di Amara looks similar Alex Wesker from Resident Evil: Revelations 2 (an almost mediocre version but without charm)
- T.J. Miller and Damon Wayans Jr. are the only two actors from the movie who did not reprise their roles as Fred and Wasabi because they were replaced by their new actors Brooks Wheelan and Khary Payton for the show.
- Daniel Henney didn't return from the movie because of his character, Tadashi Hamada dying at the beginning of the movie.
- Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle, the two creators of the series, previously created Kim Possible.
