Last night, the sequel series, Big Hero 6: The Series premiered with the TV movie special, "Baymax Returns." The special managed to capture some of the magic of Big Hero 6, stumbling in some places, but ultimately it worked to set up the rest of the series as a fun follow up to the film. "Baymax Returns," as the name implies, depicts the return of everyone’s favorite healthcare robot. After some time adjusting to both the loss of Tadashi and Baymax, Hiro is finally starting his first day at "nerd school."
