Along with their friends Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred, 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. In his normal day-to-day life, Hiro faces daunting academic challenges and social trials as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.

Additional guest cast includes: Jenifer Lewis ("black-ish") as strict Professor Granville; Andrew Scott ("Sherlock") as villain Obake; comedian Andy Richter as Globby; Diedrich Bader ("American Housewife") 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.
