By Asia Pop Culture

A set of cute cartoons of the Qin Emperor and Empress specially designed for the Forbidden City in Beijing has gone viral on the Internet in China. The cartoons use the image of Disney's fictional character Baymax, a superhero in the movie "Big Hero 6."

Baymax appears in the 2014 Disney animated film Big Hero 6, voiced by Scott Adsit, and in the video game Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes.  In the film and the game, he is depicted as an inflatable robot with phenomenal strength, and amazing surveillance and data analysis capabilities.
