CBTVB: Disney Announces Voice Cast for Big Hero 6 Cartoon

By Muuka Muyumba

Disney Animation’s big 2014 hit, Big Hero 6 is set to recur on Disney XD next year. The film was based on an obscure Marvel comic property of a team of wannabe superheroes in the city of San Fransokyo, led by boy genius Hiro Hamada. After the death of his brother Tadashi, Hiro seeks to protect his city from the criminal element that took his brother’s life by using his genius to turn his brother’s nursing robot, Baymax, into a battling droid.

The most exciting new is that the series is getting some of the film’s heavy-hitters back on the small screen. Maya Rudolph (Aunt Cass), Jamie Chung (GoGo), Scott Adsit (Baymax), Alan Tudyk (Alistair Krei), Ryan Potter (Hiro), Genesis Rodriguez (Honey Lemon), David Shaughnessy (Heathcliff), and Stan Lee (Fred’s Dad) will all be returning to voice their characters from the film. Wasabi and Fred, however, will be voiced by Khary Payton (The Lion Guard) and Brooks Wheelan (Saturday Night Live) respectively.

The series also brings some new characters to the fore with veteran actor Jennifer Lewis (black-ish) as Professor Granville, Andrew Scott (Sherlock) as the villain Obake, comedian Andy Richter as Globby, Sean Giambrone (The Goldbergs) as Richardson Mole, John Ross Bowie (Speechless) as Mei, Diedrich Bader (American Housewife) as Bluff Dunder, Susan Sullivan (Castle) as Fred’s mother, and Haley Tju (Bella and the Bulldogs) as Karmi.

Big Hero 6 opened on November 7, 2014 and made $223 million in the domestic box office and $658M worldwide. Some critics felt that there was a failure in storytelling with a less-than-convincing villain, but the film has an 89% Rotten Tomatoes rating and went on to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. The series will live immediately after the events of the movie, and may be a larger signal that Disney isn’t making a sequel to the Oscar-winner.
