This Summer, Baymax is back in search of those needing assistance with the release of Baymax!, a sequel to 2014’s Big Hero 6, on Disney+.
The first-ever animated series from Walt Disney Animation Studios will follow Baymax, and his creator Hiro, as he tries to provide assistance for everyday folk around San Fransokyo.
The spinoff will reunite some of Big Hero 6’s original cast for six episodes, including Scott Adsit, Ryan Potter, and Maya Rudolph.

A second trailer, released this month on National Streaming Day (20 May), further explores the communication barriers that come with being a robot offering support, as Baymax learns to socialise through some awkward interactions.
