The Disney+ series focuses on the everyday existence of Baymax, your personal healthcare companion.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Baymax!” returns to the fantastical city of San Fransokyo in a 6-episode series where the affable, inflatable, inimitable healthcare companion, Baymax sets out to do what he was programmed to do - help others!
Your Personal Heathcare Companion
Each episode in the series follow a central character with a problem that Baymax is determined to fix, since that is what he was programmed to do. However, his help isn’t always welcome, but the characters soon learn that Baymax has much more up his white vinyl sleeve than they’d ever imagined.
According to series creator Don Hall, who helmed 2014’s Oscar®-winning feature “Big Hero 6,” the idea of centering a series around Baymax was always rooted in the character’s undeniable appeal. “He is pure of intent and pure of heart—even though he’s a robot,” says Hall. “He has one goal and one goal only: to help and heal his patients. He’s resolute in that goal."
The Everyday Baymax
Each of the six episodes in “Baymax!” is about eight minutes in length, While some of the main characters in “Big Hero 6” can be spotted as background characters in the film, unlike "Big Hero 6", the series will focus on Baymax as a healthcare companion - no fighting, flying armour or rocket fists!
Throughout the series, you will get to see how Baymax interacts with and interrupts the everyday lives of normal people due to his single-minded goal of helping others. While his intentions are good, it doesn't always start on the right foot, particularly because Baymax's "patients" are a bit reluctant to take up his healing offers - but that doesn't stop Baymax at all!
We particularly enjoyed episode 3 "Sofia", where the Sofia, a middle-school student, finds herself in the midst of a major life change when she gets her period for the first time. Fortunately, Baymax is on hand with unwavering support - this episode will be an opportunity to discuss the topic of menstruation with children and to let them know that it is not something to be ashamed about or to shy away from.
“Baymax!” debuts exclusively on Disney+ on June 29, 2022. Catch the series to see how Baymax managed to convince and "fix" his patients in each episode!
