Yesterday the Big Hero 6 meet & greet with Hiro and Baymax opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios! Kristen and I went down this morning to meet them. They did awesome! Baymax can move and blink, and he's a huge inflatable! While he doesn't talk, Hiro actually does a very good job helping with the interaction between Baymax and the guests.
The area where they put this is where Wreck-It Ralph used to be (they are being featured in parades now), and if you've seen the movie, the whole area has awesome props and stuff from the film. (You really should go see it, it's awesome!)
Here's some photos and video:
The Big Hero 6 meet & greet area is themed to Hiro's robotics lab that is housed in his garage in the film.
This is Baymax's containment and charging unit along with his rocket fist.
Hiro's bot fighting bot that always seems to get him in a bit of trouble! =)
Kristen is all ready to go meet Baymax & Hiro!
The queue area has giant posters of all the characters. There's Honey Lemon.
Here's Fred in his "Fredzilla" suit! (I think that's what they call him)
Wasabi and his laser blades!
15 minutes before the meet & greet opened, the entire queue was totally full! Big Hero 6 has only been out one day and already the meet & greet is getting a lot of attention!
They were even passing our special Big Hero 6 Photo Pass cards!
Kristen LOVED getting to meet Baymax & Hiro!
This was a cute touch with Hiro showed Baymax the "mini Baymax" and suggested maybe Wasabi used his shrinking ray on him!
Hiro was very impressed with Kristen's Honey Lemon/Go Go shirt. When he said "That's a sick shirt", it got Baymax's attention! =) (You'll have to see the movie!)
Oh, yeah, did we mention that Baymax can blink?
Great job, guys! Really loved this character meet & greet!
Here's another overview of what the area looks like.
And here you can see where it's placed in the Animation building at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Of course on our way our, we had to go get the new Baymax Magic Bands!
And on the way home, Kristen made sure Baymax was secure. "Seatbelts save lives!"
I did the Animators Preview screening about 3 weeks ago up in San Francisco. IMHO I enjoyed the film very much. It realy is a well done family film. I think 4 & 5 might be a bit young, unless your kids have great attention spans. I would say the film is much more geared toward 8-14 year old boys and girls as well as most of the pop cultural set. I know my kids will love it.
