Off campus, the stakes are raised for the high-tech heroes as they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.
“Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid, unique characters,” “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 that only Mark, Bob — and Baymax — can deliver.” said Disney Channels Worldwide president Gary Marsh.
