Disney Interactive today announced that a special Disney-themed Toy Box Starter Pack is set to launch on November 4, 2014, just in time for the holidays. The Disney Infinity: Toy Box Starter Pack (2.0 Edition) gives Disney fans the chance to experience the new and improved Toy Box 2.0 mode, set in the wonderful world of Disney, and is compatible with the game’s Marvel Play Sets.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph, comes Big Hero 6, an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot,and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called Big Hero 6.
Just a few hours after officially confirming meet and greet character appearances by Hiro and Baymax from Disney’s upcoming animated feature Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014), Disney Parks and Resorts has issued casting call notices to fill the role of Hiro.
Although the characters are expected to begin making in-park appearances beginning in the fall, the casting notices fail to mention approximate start dates for the roles, but also note that all look-a-likes (face characters) are expected to perform meet and greets in full costumes as well, so the start date of the position does not appear to directly reflect that of the Big Hero 6 meet and greets.
At the Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014) booth from Disney Consumer Products at San Diego Comic-Con, attendees are able to preview much of the upcoming toy line from Bandai that will be available at mass market retailers beginning in September. Among the items, however, are also a sneak peek at upcoming Vinylmation figures based on the titular characters from the film, to be available exclusively at Disney Store.
With just under one week to go before San Diego Comic-Con, Disney Consumer Products has shared with us some of the upcoming merchandise for Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014) that attendees can find previewed at the film’s booth (#3635A).
