The series was announced on Wednesday by Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide.
"Our colleagues at Walt Disney Animation Studios have created a brilliant new world, inspired by Marvel, with vivid, unique characters," Marsh said. "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."
The series will pick up right where the film left off, following the adventures and friendship of 14-year-old tech genius, Hiro, and hit compassionate, cutting-edge robot, Baymax. In addition to the challenge of protecting their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains, Hiro will also face daunting tasks as the little man on campus as a student at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology.
