Baymax! series get first trailer

Disney has revealed that a new Big Hero 6 spinoff show titled Baymax! will be coming to Disney Plus in Summer 2022.

Alongside the reveal, Disney also shared a short teaser for the series, which shows off Baymax as he attempts to save the world, one patient at a time. While little has been revealed about the show’s plot, it seems as if it will follow the character as he attempts to help ordinary citizens to better their lives across the city of San Fransokyo.

From slowly attempting to master the skills of a coffee shop barista to delivering a lengthy speech on the applications of band-aids to a group of school children it seems that Baymax might have his work cut out for him.

Boba Fett arrives in Fortnite on December 24th

Epic Games has announced that the bounty hunter Boba Fett will arrive in Fortnite on December 24th, the weekend before The Book of Boba Fett debuts on Disney+. Epic hasn’t said much more about the crossover, but judging by the teaser art the studio shared, Fett’s partner Fennec Shand will also make an appearance.
