Big Hero 6 is one of the most beloved modern Disney Animation movies by fans, a fusion Marvel y Disney with an adorable robot protagonist, Baymaxwhich has recently had its own animated series on Disney+.
Strangely, despite the success at the box office and the Oscars, Big Hero 6 has not yet had a sequel, and has remained largely ignored by the Disney parks (which focused on expansions with juicier franchises, such as Avengers Campus, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge or Avatar). ).
But finally Disney Parks has announced that justice will be done with Big Hero 6, which will have its own little corner in the theme park Disney California Adventurein Annaheim, and will open this summer getting fully into San Fransokyo.
This will be San Fransokyo Square from Big Hero 6 at Disney California Adventure

One of the coolest things about Big Hero 6 was the city of San Fransokyo, a clash of cultures between San Francisco and Tokyo. And that’s what will be built on Disney California Adventure (albeit on a small scale).
It is not a new themed area, not even an attraction, but a re-theming of an existing area, Pacific Wharfwhich consists mainly of restaurants that are inspired by a recreational port on the west coast of the United States.
But when they become San Fransokyo, new street and building decorations will transport you to the multicultural city, including a recreation of the San Fransokyo Bridgewhich is basically the Golgen Gate looking like a Japanese pagoda.
One of the new restaurants will be the “Cervecería”, with signs in English, Japanese and Spanish and a menu that will honor the three cultures. And although there will be no attractions, a new area will be enabled to take a picture in a Baymax costume to actual size.
San Fransokyo Square will open this summer, and while it’s not something that’s going to make us want to book flights to Los Angeles right now, yes it will give more personality to a park that opened in 2001 next door to the original Disneyland and received appalling reviews for poor, sparse theming and an undignified Disney look… although it redeemed itself with the spectacular area of Cars Land.
