During last year’s D23 Expo, it was announced that California Adventure Park’s Pacific Wharf would be rethemed into San Fransokyo, the fictional setting from Disney’s fan-favorite film, Big Hero 6 (2014). Now that the construction has officially begun, Disney has started covering other areas of the immersion.

A new casting call has appeared on the DisneyCareers website. If there are any performers who are looking to work with Disneyland entertainment, check out the latest character needed on the Disney Auditions page: Hiro Hamada.

At only 14 years old, Hiro Hamada is in his young teens, but don’t let his childish appearance fool you! He’s totally brilliant and is often described as a born genius. Not only that, but the character is half-Japanese and half-Caucasian, making him one of the characters adding to Disney’s diversity.
