The new Baymax! series on Disney+ is the continuation of Disney’s Big Hero 6, which was released at the box office in 2014 as an adaptation of the Marvel comic book by the same name. But Baymax! is a first for Walt Disney Animation Studios in that it will be the studio’s first-ever animated series.

The series was announced in November 2021 during Disney’s first-ever Disney+ Day. Today Disney announced that the new Baymax series will be streamable beginning June 29.

Baymax is the lovable character from Disney’s Big Hero 6. He’s also a hero. He’s quiet. He’s smart. He’s observant. He’s kind. He’s patient. He’s helpful. He is the ultimate health care companion, as he was created to be by Hiro’s brother Tadashi. And he always makes sure you’re satisfied with his service.

Disney’s new animated series inspired by the lovable health care companion sees Baymax just the way we remember him–with a natural bent toward exceptional customer service and a willingness to help no matter the call, no matter the scenario, no matter what. In a trailer for the new series, Hiro’s Aunt Cass falls and hurts herself and is unable to work, so it’s Baymax to the rescue! He offers to help Aunt Cass run her cafe while she’s recuperating.

Not only can Baymax offer assistance if you’re bleeding, sneezing, or choking, he can also make a mean caramel latte!

The new Baymax series was created and written by animation filmmaker Don Hall. Hall was also the director of Disney’s Winnie the Pooh, Big Hero 6, Moana (as co-director), and Raya and the Last Dragon, according to GeekTyrant.

Fans of Baymax can see him in action in his brand-new animated series, set to hit the Disney+ platform on June 29!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
