Disney Imagineering brings life to Audio-Animatronics® Figures

Join the FIRST community for Beyond the Bots on FIRSTtv this Thursday, April 8 at 6:30PM ET as we sit down with Asa Kalama, Senior Creative Director at Walt Disney Imagineering, to discuss how Hondo Ohnaka, an Audio-Animatronics® figure at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, was brought to life at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park at the Disneyland Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park at Walt Disney World Resort. 

 

Hondo Ohnaka is one of Disney Parks most advanced Audio-Animatronics figures. From his realistic features to his fluid motions, Hondo Ohnaka was engineered to give guests an experience like no other, delivering a convincing performance with his 51 functions including 10 in his face alone. 

 

Tune in on FIRSTtv to hear more from Asa about what it takes to bring a robot to life at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
