SAN FRANSOKYO - Disney XD's animated "Big Hero 6 The Series" is set to launch MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EST), with a one-hour primetime television movie, "Baymax Returns," simultaneously on Disney XD and Disney Channel, and available on the DisneyNOW app and Disney XD VOD.

Set in the fictional city of San Fransokyo, "Baymax Returns" explores the moment in Walt Disney Animation Studios' Academy Award(R)-winning feature film after Hiro believes that his compassionate, cutting-edge robot Baymax is lost in the portal forever and discovers the chip his brother Tadashi designed to create Baymax. 14-year-old tech genius Hiro begins school as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology and sets off to rebuild Baymax, but his overconfidence and penchant for taking shortcuts leads him and the newly minted Big Hero 6 team - Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred - into trouble.

The series, which will debut in early 2018 on Disney XD, continues the adventures and friendship of Hiro, Baymax and the Big Hero 6 team, picking up immediately following the events of the feature film.

Recurring guest voice cast includes Jenifer Lewis as Professor Granville, Haley Tju as Karmi, Andrew Scott as Obake and Andy Richter as Globby.

Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley and Nick Filippi, the team behind the Emmy Award(R)-winning global hit Disney Channel series "Kim Possible," serve as executive producers.
