Production has begun on Disney XD’s Big Hero 6 animated TV series. The announcement was made by Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide.
‘Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid, unique characters,’ said Marsh. ‘We are thrilled to have the opportunity to further develop these characters into a world class animated series — full of fun, action and the kind of endearing storytelling.’
Emmy Award-winning producers Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley (Kim Possible) are the executive producers. Big Hero 6 is set to premiere in 2017. For more, follow the jump.
Big Hero 6 – the movie that’s as huggable as its roly-poly healthcare giver – has become the top-grossing animated film of 2014.

After careful consideration – and with some trepidation – I’ve finally put together my final list of my favorite movies from 2014. It was the first time in a long while that I saw more than 200 movies and a lot of them were incredibly good (a lot were incredibly bad, or boring, but I’ve already dealt with those).
As usual, these are the films that got me laughing, crying, engaged in conversations and generally made my brain fizz in a good way. As usual, anyone who says it was a crap year for movies just wasn’t paying attention.
Also note that two movies – Selma and Boyhood (despite their importance in terms of history and/or unique concepts) did not make my favorites list – not because they were bad films. They were not. They were very, very good ones. They just didn’t connect with me as much as these twenty did.
With the inconceivable Oscar® snub of The LEGO Movie, there’s a good chance that Disney’s Big Hero 6 – a terrific film, itself – could snap up the Best Animated Film award.
To see why Big Hero 6 has resonated so well with audiences, take a look behind the making of the film – Hiro’s Journey, narrated by Go Go Tomago herself, Jamie Chung – following the jump. (Note: if you haven’t seen Big Hero 6 yet, beyond this point there be spoilers!)
The Boxtrolls and How To Train Your Dragon 2 led the nominees for the 42nd Annual Annie Awards – with The Boxtrolls nabbing 13 noms and Dragon securing 10. Both are included in the Best Animated Feature Category where they are joined by Big Hero 6, Cheatin’, Song of the Sea, The Book of Life, The LEGO Movie and The Tale of Princess Kaguya.
The Annie Awards are given in recognition of achievement in animation for film and television. The complete list of nominations follow the jump. The Annie Awards will be presented on January 31st.
It was only a matter of time before Disney tackled an animated Marvel movie. Picking an extremely obscure title allowed the company to set up a unique world and introduce a group of genuinely fun characters.
Loss leads to superheroic adventure in Disney’s Big Hero 6. It is one of the best films of the year – in any genre.
