BaymaxThe adventures of Hiro and Baymax will continue as TVLine reports a sequel series to the 2014 feature will air on Disney XD next year.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to further develop these characters into a world class animated series," said Disney Channel President Gary Marsh in a statement.

The film, based on the team and characters created by Man of Action's Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau, was Disney's first animated feature take on Marvel characters. It subsequently won Best Animated Feature at the 2015 Academy Awards. Since that time, there has been talk of a sequel, but nothing confirmed.

The Big Hero 6 series will debut in 2017.
