Kingdom Hearts has had a massive year, with the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue all the way to the unveiling of the Toy Story world for Kingdom Hearts 3!
One of the biggest reveals was that Kingdom Hearts 3 will be launching in 2018 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. With 2018 quickly approaching, English voice work for the upcoming game will hopefully be starting soon.
While there has been no official confirmation of the English voice cast having started work on the game, it's relieving to note that Scott Adsit is pretty much a lock-in to return as Baymax for the world based on Big Hero 6.
In February 2017, Scott Adsit was interviewed by Leonard Maltin and Jessie Maltin for the podcast Maltin on Movies. They quickly discussed Big Hero 6 and Baymax's legacy, and Scott Adsit had this to say about returning to the role for future media (the response is at 4:25):
It's weird to think, and I'm sure you've talked to people who have experiences or will, presumably the character will live on when I'm gone and so there will be people imitating me because I can't be there and I will be there any time they want me to be. At this point I don't want to hear someone else doing my voice.
-- Scott Adsit, February 17 2017
It is exciting to learn that Scott Adsit will always be around to voice Baymax, as it just wouldn't be the same to listen to the character with someone else voicing the loveable companion to Hiro.
For those who continue on listening to the podcast, Leonard Maltin comments on Scott Adsit voicing Baymax for a video game, however this was most likely for the Disney Infinity series where Baymax was a character in 2.0 and 3.0 and it is not a reveal that he is currently voicing Baymax for any future video games.
Baymax will return later this month in Big Hero 6: The Series, which will kick off on November 20, 2017 on Disney Channel and Disney XD with a one-hour special. The entire voice cast from the movie will return, with the exception of Damon Wayans, Jr. (Wasabi) and T.J. Miller (Fred) who have been replaced by Khary Payton (The Walking Dead) and Brooks Wheelan (Saturday Night Live) respectively.
