Disney XD has placed an early order for a second season of the highly anticipated Big Hero 6 The Series ahead of its official premiere this fall. Based on Disney Animation’s Academy Award-winning feature adaptation of the Marvel comics, the Big Hero 6 show is executive produced by Emmy winners Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Nick Filippi (the Kim Possible team). The announcement was made by SVP of Programming and General Manager for Disney XD, Marc Buhaj.
“Mark, Bob and Nick have delivered a dynamic adventure series that follows the Big Hero 6 superhero team, led by audience favorites Hiro and Baymax,” said Buhaj. “We are honored to have the opportunity to further expand the elaborate world and engaging characters of Big Hero 6 The Series with this early second season order.”
Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series picks up immediately after the events of the movie, and continuing the adventures of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro (voiced by Ryan Potter) and his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax (Scott Adsit). Along with their friends Wasabi (Khary Payton), Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), Go Go (Jamie Chung) and Fred (Brooks Wheelan), 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 … all while Hiro faces daunting academic challenges and social trials as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.
So Kubo and the Two Strings didn’t win the the award for Best Animated Feature. It also lost the award for Best Visual Effects.
This amazing movie lost to two Disney movies.
But you know what? That’s okay.
Kubo and the Two Strings is a story about loss. Even more, it’s a story about a boy who had something stolen from him but pressed on anyway. He still showed unending love and appreciation for what he had.
Kubo and the Two Strings got nominated twice. It was the first animated movie in a long time that was nominated for Best Visual Effects. It stood up there alongside Rogue One and Doctor Strange.
Even if it didn’t quite make it all the way – and even if the Oscars lean toward Disney – it proved itself just by being nominated.
All of us Kubo fans: let’s take a page out of Kubo’s book and say that we are thankful it had a chance, and that we will continue to love this movie through thick and thin.
A place-an island-covered in towns and cities and parks and forests and lakes and even more things I can’t even imagine it. And in the heart of this island there’s a building-a school-an academy, large, massive, grand, reaching to the sky it could put Hogwarts to shame.
But it’s the students who are the true wonder: Magic users, princesses, street rats, elite aristocrats, animals.
Now imagine a girl with long flowing yellow locks excited to be there even though she had to beg her overbearing mother to let her go.
A mute redhead who appeared at the docks soaked to the bone but smiling and holding a fork and wanting to see what the surface world is really like.
Imagine a girl only attending cause the school didn’t apply their students maids.
Imagine a small town girl who got there with nothing but hard work and can’t stand the obnoxious rich pretty boys who don’t even appreciate that their there.
Imagine a girl who is there to not only learn how to be a queen but to control a gift that is more like a curse.
Imagine a girl who spends more time at the sea than in school.
Imagine the other small town girl who got there on a scholarship and hears of the ‘beast’ hiding in the dungeons of the school.
Imagine the anthropomorphic animals excited to join the humans with magic in their blood and crowns on their heads but are still looked down upon, especially when you’re a bunny wanting to be more than the world says you can be.
Imagine a mean and snobbish girl who might as well be a sea witch becoming the queen bee of the school. A boorish pretty boy whose bucket list is to date every girl in school. A handsome but deceitful prince who wants to graduate with even more power. A sheep who thinks there are some creatures that are above others.
Imagine the possibilities, the love stories, the adventures…
