Move over, Mickey Mouse– there's a new talking character ready to meet guests at Magic Kingdom, and this guy's got a pretty sweet set of wheels.

According to WDWMagic, Disney recently debuted a new interactive robot character in Tomorrowland called "iCan," which wheels itself around on what seems to be some kind of hoverboard.

Apparently from outer space, iCan has come to Earth to interface with humans and learn about their lives.



WDWMagic reports that he has the ability to look up information on, say, where people live, and demonstrate detailed knowledge of the area.

The character also has a chest-mounted video screen and speakers, which it uses to play tunes like James Brown's "I Feel Good."

Disney hasn't announced appearance times for the character, but checking out the area near Space Mountain during the morning would be a good place to start looking for him.
