Big Hero 6: The Series continues the adventures of 14-year-old tech genius Hiro and his robot Baymax. Joining the pair on their journey is control freak Wasabi, scientist Honey Lemon, fanboy Fred and no-nonsense GoGo, who together form the Big Hero 6 superhero team. As the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, Hiro faces daunting academic challenges, not to mention the social trials of being the little man on campus. The stakes are also raised for the high-tech heroes when they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.
Kids see Hiro forge his own path even as he follows in the footsteps of his beloved older brother. He has positive influences in his life in his friends and his aunt, and of course Baymax. Though his grief over losing his brother has waned somewhat, it still weighs on his mind, and his friends help him cope. Strong themes of education, empathy, taking risks, learning from mistakes, not taking shortcuts, and doing the right thing. Hiro is impulsive, which gets him into some trouble, but he's also a quick thinker and an adept problem-solver. He learns to lean on his friends rather than go it alone all the time. Aunt Cass takes a less visible role but remains an ardent supporter of Hiro. Baymax is an emotional healer and often articulates feelings the characters don't even realize they're <...> - by Common Sense Media [Emily Ashby]
The main plot of the premiere fleshes out the last three minutes of the movie to give more depth to not only how Hiro was able to reconstruct Baymax but also the team’s reluctance to go back into crime fighting. Turns out Wasabi, Go Go, and Honey Lemon didn’t think the whole superhero thing would be a permanent gig. Fred, of course, is the catalyst to get them all suited up again. There’s a lot of promise in this opening story that all the characters will eventually get some much-needed focus. While the film couldn’t devote a lot of time to the full team the series can give individual focus episodes to everyone. Here the main focus is on Hiro and Fred, in their own ways trying to get life back to what they want it to be. <...> - by Den of Geek [Shamus Kelley]
