Baymax Series on Disney+

Just saw a trailer on Disney+ of a animated series figuring the Baymax character from Big Hero 6.

The trailer looked very funny and it will be worth checking out when it starts.

I wonder how they would do the character in the parks?

I don’t know much about this IP, but I believe it was a cartoon before…and now, it is a series. I like it when DIS tries to keep the smaller brands going. Without D+, this probably wouldn’t have been possible for BH6.

I believe Baymax is that big balloon thing, so I guess I too would wonder how it would be a character walking around in Disney World. That makes me think too – should there be a live-action BH6? Could that cross-over with the Avengers MCU?

Yes, Baymax is an inflatable healthcare provider. It was a comic, not a cartoon. And yes, there are plushes, tumblers and other Big Hero 6 merch at various souvenir stores.

And while there used to be a Baymax character meet & greet at Epcot, it appears there are no plans for him to return as characters and live events return to the park.

I do not see a live action Big Hero 6 series. And I’m not sure of crossover opportunities, since the story is set in a futuristic San Fransokyo, though if the multiverse cracks open again, who knows.

Who notes Big Hero Six was also a popular animated Disney XD series for 4 seasons from 2017 to 2021…
