Exactly where the characters will appear hasn’t been revealed, but the audition postings make clear that casting is based on resemblance, not necessarily dancing or movement ability.

Notably, main character Meilin Lee, and her mother, Ming Lee, are missing from the audition postings, but they may be cast internally or appear in their red panda forms, meaning resemblance to the character wouldn’t matter. Mei, as a red panda, began appearing at Shanghai Disney Resort earlier this year.

4*TOWN

Disney Live Entertainment is casting roles for upcoming special events and appearances at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. We are seeking performers local to Southern CA to portray the five members of the smash musical act 4*Town (from Disney-Pixar’s Turning Red).

Dancing ability a plus. Will be cast based on resemblance to character.

Seeking the following roles.

4*Town (boy band) – To Meilin Lee and her friends, no musical group in the world is more talented – or dreamier – than the chart-topping, five-member boy band 4*Town. They may be the biggest musical act of the late 90s/early 2000s, but these five besties keep it real by staying humble and always being true to their fans.

Robaire (5’6”-5’9”) is the Leader of 4*Town for a reason. He will eventually have a successful solo career, but until then, he’s content to jam on the tour bus with his four best friends.

Tae Young (5’5”-5’7”) is the youngest member of 4*Town and known as the “Cute One.” A lover of animals, Tae Young is dedicated to wildlife rehabilitation and has personally fostered injured doves between tours.

Jesse (5’9”-5’11”) is the oldest member of 4*Town. Jesse was in art school studying a degree in ceramics before the band took off. When fame starts getting to his head, throwing clay on his potter’s wheel and spending time with his two kids brings him back down to earth. Jesse is the “Artistic One.”

Aaron Z (5’9”-5’11”) is the athlete of 4*Town and the strongest dancer. Aaron Z coordinates a lot of the band’s moves and chills out by shooting hoops. Stoic and a little shy, he’s known as the “Lone Wolf” of the group.

Aaron T (5’6”-5’9”) is fast-talking and a natural comedian. “T” is always there to break the tension when life on the road gets tense. He’s a fun-loving prankster who remains happy and laidback, even after facing interviews.

Jin Lee

Disney Live Entertainment is casting roles for upcoming special events and appearances at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. Performers local to Southern CA are needed to portray the role of Jin Lee, the father of Meilin (from Disney-Pixar’s Turning Red).

Movement ability a plus. Will be cast based on resemblance to character.

Seeking the following role:

Jin Lee (5’7”-5’10”) is the quiet, steady presence in the Lee family. Jin works hard and aspires to a life of simple pleasures. Devoted to family, Jin is a necessary balance to his strong-willed wife Ming and is a doting father to their daughter Meilin. Even though an ancient phenomenon has thrown his family into chaos, Jin remains trusting, supportive and loving.

Miriam, Priya, and Abby

Disney Live Entertainment is casting roles for upcoming special events and appearances at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. Performers local to Southern CA are needed to portray the roles of Miriam, Priya and Abby (Meilin Lee’s three best friends from Disney-Pixar’s Turning Red).

Movement ability a plus. Will be cast based on resemblance to character.

Seeking the following roles.

Miriam (5’5”-5’7”) is loyal, easygoing and a total goof who can make her besties laugh when they need it most. Miriam regularly rocks a flannel and she shares her friends’ obsession with the epic boy band 4*Town. Miriam would do anything for the people she cares about, especially when their best friend Meilin transforms into a giant red panda.

Priya (5’3”-5’5”) is meticulous yet artsy, passionate yet stoic. She cares deeply for the well-being of her friends. Priya’s effortlessly chill and deadpan sense of humor make her a wildcard. She takes a calm and collected approach to school, friendship and just about anything – except 4*Town. Even Priya can’t contain her love of 4*Town.

Abby (4’11”-5’1”) is a stick of dynamite. The opposite of shy, Abby is not afraid to be heard. Fierce and passionate, she’s a tiny ball of energy who never hesitates to stand up and support her friends. Yet this tough cookie can’t help but show her soft side for Red Panda Mei. (All that extreme fluff is just too hard not to hug!)
