Disney XD's upcoming animated series "Big Hero 6," based on Walt Disney Animation Studios' Academy Award-winning feature film inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, will reunite much of the original cast for its 2017 debut. Reprising their roles are: 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.

The film, from Walt Disney Animation Studios, was inspired by the Marvel comic created by Man of Action.

The 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.

Additional guest cast includes: Jenifer Lewis ("black-ish") as strict Professor Granville; Andrew Scott ("Sherlock") as villain Obake; comedian Andy Richter as Globby; Diedrich Bader ("American Housewife") as Bluff Dunder; Susan Sullivan ("Castle") as Fred's mother; Sean Giambrone ("The Goldbergs") as Richardson Mole; John Ross Bowie ("Speechless") as Mel; and Haley Tju ("Bella and the Bulldogs") as classmate Karmi.

Emmy Award winners Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Nick Filippi, the team behind the global hit Disney Channel series "Kim Possible," serve as executive producers. Filippi also serves as supervising director. "Big Hero 6" is a production of Disney Television Animation.
