In 2014, Walt Disney Animation Studios released “Big Hero 6,” which raked in an impressive US$56 million (AU$76 million) on its opening weekend. But more than just a money-maker, the film was adored by its viewers, who will soon see the return of their favorite characters on the small screen.

While no official announcement has been made on the number of episodes that are being produced, the new 2D television series is set to debut on Disney XD sometime in 2017. To appease fans until then, Disney has confirmed that the beloved characters from “Big Hero 6” will be voiced by the original actors.

Ryan Potter will reprise his role as Hiro Hamada, the 14-year-old genius that turned Baymax from a simple medical assistant to a crime-fighting robot. Meanwhile, Baymax will also be portrayed by his original voice actor, Scott Adsit. Maya Rudolf is returning as Aunt Cass, the guardian of Hiro.

The rest of the “Big Hero 6” members will be, for the most part, played by their original voice actors as well. Jamie Chung will reprise her role as GoGo, the feminist electromagnetics specialist who uses her knowledge to develop disks that work as skates and weapons. Honey Lemon is returning as well, thanks to Genesis Rodriguez. Her character is a chemist, who uses a mechanical purse to quickly formulate various balls she uses as traps and explosives.

Alan Tudyk will also return as Alistair Krei, the millionaire entrepreneur and tech guru. Stan Lee has also signed on to voice Fred’s dad, who made a quick cameo in “Big Hero 6.” However, TJ Miller and Damon Wayans Jr. will not be returning as Fred and Wasabi respectively.

While the television adaptation of “Big Hero 6” is clearly underway, there remains the looming question regarding a movie sequel. There has been a lot of talk regarding the possible plot, but Disney has made no official announcement. Last year, however, Lee did confirm in an interview with The Toronto Sun that one was underway. “We have to come back for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2,’ ‘Big Hero 6,’ ‘The Avengers’ [and] ‘Captain America,’” he said. “I don’t even know how they decide what to do next, because every one of them is so exciting and the public is waiting for them.”
