A 40-foot-tall inflatable version of Baymax, the huggable robot from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new movie “Big Hero 6,” will make a local appearance, welcoming fans for an up-close encounter and photo op. It is this Saturday, October 25 from 10 AM – 8 PM, University of Utah UTES Tailgate Area. Or just go in the general area and look for a giant 40 foot tall Baymax, we don’t think it’ll be hard to miss.

In case you haven’t been paying attention to Disney lately. They give us this description for their Baymax character in the upcoming Big Hero 6 movie.

BAYMAX cares. That’s what he was designed to do. The plus-sized inflatable robot’s job title is technically Healthcare Companion: With a simple scan, Baymax can detect vital stats, and, given a patient’s level of pain, can treat nearly any ailment. Conceived and built by Tadashi Hamada, Baymax just might revolutionize the healthcare industry. But to the inventor’s kid brother Hiro, the nurturing, guileless bot turns out to be more than what he was built for—he’s a hero, and quite possibly Hiro’s closest friend. And after some deft reprogramming that includes a rocket fist, super strength and rocket thrusters that allow him to fly, Baymax becomes one of the “Big Hero 6.”
