    I wouldn't be surprised if at least one was double length or something similar.

    That would make for one serious drop in budget from pilot to series.

    Isn't 26 episodes the usual count for a full half-hour cartoon o_O?

    Disney (outside of Marvel Animation, and Disney Junior) tends to be different. Their shows usually have 21 episodes in the first season and 22 is subsequent seasons, some exceptions

    7/10/17:
    A Big Hero 6 Be Inspired promo aired during Penn Zero. It's not online yet, but someone took some stills.

    Hmm...animation doesn't look as sharp as I was expecting, especially compared to the promo art o_O.

    Granted, it's probably hard to really gauge it from stills...

    Well, the person who took the pictures was probably shaking a bit, hence why they don't look as good as the promo art. Maybe once we get a promo, we'll see crisper animation.

    I saw it. There were short clips from Ducktales, Big Hero 6 and some MCU movies used.

    There's just something funny about Disney XD using clips from the MCU movies for a promo rather then their actual cartoons :rolleyes2:.

    Here are the main titles

    I really the intro. It sucks you into the show's energetic world. The animation is also Penn Zero like.

    Well, the animation is certainly not like, bone/puppet movement like in Flash.

    Superb use of the hexagon as the dominant shape seen in the opening sequence IMO. Elements from the 3D movie appear to have made the transition to 2D well, and that includes more than the characters, as the landmarks from the movie are still recognizable. That theme song sounds very memorable.

    That's a pretty nice and snazzy intro :anime:.

    I think the animation will take some getting used to, but it still looks like a pretty cool and fun show :).

    I think the opening is cool and I'm looking forward to the actual show.

    I was honestly expecting more updates on this show to come out of D23 than the other Marvel cartoons.

    I think we probably got more news about Marvel's Spider-Man and Guardians then we did any other cartoon at D23 :sweat:.

    Here's a sneak peek of the show. I think I can hear Jeff Bennett's voice.



    If only Fall could get here sooner.

    I kind of wish it was a clip that featured the rest of the cast's voices but I guess we'll hear that in due time.
