I personally can't wait to watch this! I loved the movie and Disney XD has done a pretty good job with their animated shows. It's a bit of a bummer that two of the originals aren't coming back but at least we have most of the cast returning.
Big Hero 6: The Series will air on Disney XD sometime in 2017. Are you excited to see Big Hero 6 on your screens again? Will you be watching? Comment below!
