Disney to introduce AI robot Mickey Mouse at theme parks, insists it does not want to terrify children

Disney has provided an insight into the future of its theme parks, where robotic versions of its iconic characters could soon walk among guests.

The entertainment firm discussed plans to embrace brand new technologies at SXSW 2017, where it also showed off footage of a robot Pascal, the lizard from Tangled.

As if the thought of an enormous, roaming robot Mickey Mouse wasn’t disconcerting enough, Disney also confirmed that artificial intelligence will allow its robots to interact with people.
