Way back in the spring, we learned that Disney XD would bring back the superhero team Big Hero 6 in their own animated series. At the time, all we knew was that it would pick up shortly after the events of the first film and the series would be executive produced by Kim Possible creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley along with another Kim Possible vet, Nicholas Filippi, who’ll serve as supervising director. But now we have word on the voice cast, and fans of the movie will be very pleased to hear who’s on board.
Find out all the Big Hero 6 animated series voice cast after the jump.
In a press release, Disney has announced that Ryan Potter will reprise his role as Hiro and Scott Adsit will provide the voice of his trusty, puffy robot Baymax. In addition, Jamie Chung will be back as the speedy Go Go and Genesis Rodriguez returns as the brilliant Honey Lemon. However, the rest of the superhero team will have a slight change. Damon Wayans Jr. and T.J. Miller won’t be back as Wasabi and Fred, and those roles will be voiced by The Walking Dead‘s Khary Payton and former Saturday Night Live cast member Brooks Wheelan.
Other returning cast members from the Big Hero 6 movie include Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass, Alan Tudyk as techy guru Alistair Krei and even Stan Lee as Fred’s father, who had a cameo after the credits of the movie. That’s an impressive assembly of talent for an animated series on Disney XD. As far as I can tell, not since TRON Uprising has such an assembly of big screen talent come together for an animated series on the channel. And that’s just the primary cast.
Guest voices on Big Hero 6 will include Jenifer Lewis (black-ish) as strict Professor Granville; Andrew Scott (Sherlock) as villain Obake; comedian Andy Richter as Globby; Diedrich Bader (Office Space) 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.
The Big Hero 6 animated series is set to debut sometime in 2017, and here’s the official synopsis:
