Lewis, Wilbur Robinson, and Bowler Hat Guy, are the new walk around characters from the new Walt Disney Pictures computer animated film "Meet the Robinsons." Here they pose in the Animation Courtyard at the Disney-MGM Studios. The trio will be on-hand at the Disney-MGM Studios to meet and greet Walt Disney World Resort guests starting March 23, 2007, one week prior to the film’s nationwide release. No word where the characters will be at the Disneyland Resort.
I’m not surprised that these are mask characters. Disney just doesn’t do face characters unless they’re a prince or princess these days. But it does seem like Lewis and Wilbur would have been good candidates for face characters.
"Meet the Robinsons" follows the adventures of Lewis, a boy-genius who is whisked to the future by a mysterious stranger named Wilbur Robinson after the dastardly villain Bowler Hat Guy steals Lewis’ memory-scanning invention. It’s then up to Lewis and Wilbur to retrieve the invention before Bowler Hat Guy can alter the course of the future world.
