Baymax has returned to save the world, one patient at a time. In the Big Hero 6 spinoff series Baymax!, Scott Adsit reprises his role as the huggable healthcare companion, which premieres on Disney+ on June 29. Baymax! is the first-ever animated series from Walt Disney Animation Studios, and is a sequel to Big Hero 6 the movie, Disney’s 2014 adaptation of the Marvel comic book. Each episode of the Disney+ Original series shows the healthcare bot-turned-superhero employing his new unique abilities to help citizens in need in the magical city of San Fransokyo. The June 29 premiere date was revealed on the series’ new Disney+ landing page.

“We get to explore more of the city of San Fransokyo, this vast, fantastic, colourful canvas,” Big Hero 6 director Don Hall stated at Disney’s Investor Day 2020 when unveiling Baymax! “The show centres on Baymax’s original plan, which was to be a nursing robot.”

“Each episode introduces a new character: a patient who Baymax will assist,” Hall said, describing the inflatable robot as “a hero for the times” for his “single-minded devotion to just helping people.” Baymax will “have a new capability that will let him quickly cruise around the streets of San Fransokyo hunting for patients,” according to Hall, an upgrade over Big Hero 6.

Baymax previously appeared in Disney Television Animation’s hand-drawn sequel series Big Hero 6: The Series, which aired on DisneyXD for three seasons. Baymax debuted in 2014’s Big Hero 6 as the robot brainchild of Tadashi (Daniel Henney), the older brother of robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter).

Baymax and Hiro were cast as members of the techy superhero squad Big Hero 6, which also included San Francisco Institute of Technology students Go Go (Jamie Chung), Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.), and Fred (T.J. Miller), and Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez).
