    Given this is going to be a continuation, I think it's safe to expect they'll try to adhere to the style and designs of the movie as much as possible while using traditional animation :).

    Probably in their style. They also did the Buzz Lightyear cartoon, and it looked more similar to Kim Possible rather than the Toy Story films.

    Hopefully they'll use the same, traditional disney-style character art as translated in Disney's traditional means of animation... I mean of course, it's Disney!

    I'd rather not. These franchises don't really mix the way Disney set them up.

    I'd actually like a crossover, or at least some teasers of the MCU heroes for us to speculate that their canon, or at least live in their own animated Marvel Universe.

    I almost forgot about the show believe it or not, but I am glad to hear that they do want to give more insight to the show before its debut, I have been seeing that trend going up for most animated cartoons, but its good in deed that more will be said eventually.

    This is great news! I'm curious when this show will air. Same with Tangled: Before Ever After (another Disney animated movie turned into a show). I wasn't super hyped for this show when it was announced. I loved the movie and wanted to see a sequel like Wreck-It Ralph, another Disney movie I loved which is getting a sequel (YES!). But now I'm totally on board for a new series.

    I'm glad Jamie Chung will be returning as GoGo Tomago. I wanted some of the other film voice actors to return as well like Ryan Potter (Hiro), Scott Adsit (Baymax), and T.J. Miller (Fred), but if they aren't returning, hopefully suitable replacements are found. Same with Aunt Cass who rocked in the movie. I do hope the creators from the original Marvel comic series (Steven T. Seagle, Duncan Rouleau) are credited. It would be sad if they were forgotten/ignored. Also, since the creators of Kim Possible are working on the show, I expect some great villains!

    I can almost bet, Khary Payton is playing Wasabi.

    I don't think it'll be that hard to get the cast of the movie back for the TV show, since I believe most of them are TV actors to begin with and seemed to really enjoy working on the project :).

    Nice idea. I could see that and maybe Hynden Walch as Honey Lemon. Which other Teen Titans could be Big Hero 6 members?! :D
    I would've expected any returning voice actors to have been revealed alongside Jamie Chung. We'll see, I suppose. It's always great when film voice actors reprise their roles in follow-up TV series, in my opinion.

    TJ Miller reprised his role for the How To Train Your Dragons cartoon, so I definitely wouldn't be surprised to see him back as Fred, and I also hope that the other BH6 actors being TV actors helps get them back for the show :).

    I'm disappointed that Disney could not get all 6 voice actors of the Big Hero 6 team back, but not surprised. Bringing back 6 voice actors is a lot more difficult than what the Tangled animated series had to do. Still, 2/3 of the core team returning is substantial. It will be odd to hear someone else than T.J. Miller and Damon Wayans Jr. play Fred and Wasabi respectively. Hopefully, they take inspiration from what was left out of the original movie, where Yama was to have a bigger role.
