Disney has revealed the cast for their new animated series based on their hit movie Big Hero 6. The Great news is that most of the original cast is on board to reprise their roles. The not-so great news is that one actor’s name is missing and will not be back to help protect San Fransoyko.
When I first wrote about the news of Big Hero 6 coming to TV back in March, I expressed my hope in the cast returning. I also expressed how I hoped that T.J. Miller would be back to voice Fred most of all. Sadly his name and Damon Wayans Jr.’s names were absent from the cast list. But the good news is everyone else is coming back.
Ryan Potter (Hiro), Scott Adsit (Baymax), Jamie Chung (GoGo), Genesis Rodriguez (Honey Lemon), Alan Tudyk (Alistair Krei), May Rudolph (Aunt Cass), David Shaughnessy (Heathcliff) and Stan Lee (Fred’s dad) will all be returning to their roles with additional guest voice actors including Jenifer Lewis (“Blackish”), Andrew Scott (“Sherlock”) and Andy Richter.
So we lose T.J. Miller but gain Stan Lee? I’m alright with that.
The series will be helmed by executive producers Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, who are the creators and show runners of Kim Possible. It’s scheduled to air sometime in 2017 and be a continuation of the movie with our heroes protecting San Fransoyko while attending the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.
