in Disney, Entertainment, Movies & TV, Television

If you wanted to see more of Hiro, Baymax and the rest of the super crew after the end of 2014’s “Big Hero 6,” then you’re going to want to check out Disney XD’s “Big Hero 6: The Series.”

Tomorrow’s DVD release “Big Hero 6: The Series – Back in Action” features seven episodes of the new animated series that returns Ryan Potter to the role of Hiro and Scott Adsit to the role of Baymax. It also features six hilarious shorts, each featuring Baymax with one of the other characters.

The seven episodes featured on the DVD are presented out of order in relation to when they aired on Disney XD. It is also worth noting that this DVD is not the complete first season of “Big Hero 6: The Series,” but rather a collection of the episodes that will have already aired at the time of the DVD’s release.

When first starting up this DVD, you will have the option to go to the main menu or take advantage of Disney’s Fast Play option which automatically begins playing the feature content, bypassing the main DVD menu.

The episodes featured on the DVD include:

Baymax Returns (44-minute Disney Channel Television Movie, Episode 101) – Shortly following the defeat of Callaghan and Hiro’s first day at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro discovers Baymax’s personality chip and proceeds to rebuild his skeleton.

The bonus features on this DVD include six hilarious shorts in which Baymax attempts to expand his matrix with another character.

1. Baymax and Hiro – Hiro creates a new battery boost chip for Baymax that gives him a long battery life, but unfortunately also kicks Baymax into an unbearably high gear.

6. Baymax and Mochi – Aunt Cass leaves Baymax in charge of her cat Mochi and everything he tries goes wrong.
