Character Heights/CP Auditions
 
I know that a lot of this information is spread throughout other threads - but I thought it might be nice to keep it all in one area with auditions coming up.

I have a couple questions about face characters - it sounds like everyone is just placed as princesses - what about villains or other characters? Are they just the same people?

I'm interested in Kim Possible (but I'm too tall), the step sisters Drizella and Anastasia - I think I could easily have the huge animated face they always have - as well as Cruella de Vil. Anyone know how they select these characters?

For those that may be new - keep in mind that heights are considered a Disney secret - so alumni are limited in what they can say, but many are super nice and will PM you information!

hey villians are still in the face character selection process.

I'm SUPER interested in being Jasmin but we'll see what happens.

Do you know if they cast people specifically for Drizella or Anastasia - or are they the same people who play the princesses?

I'm only curious because I don't think I look like a princess, but I could be a REALLY stellar Anastasia!!!

I imagine it could be both. But probably more to the 2nd one. It all depends on what entertainment thinks.

A bit off topic, but I was wondering if I could add your livejournal to my friend's list Berlioz? I'd love to get more information regarding the program for when I decide to apply; especially because you are looking into a character role. Best of luck!

You guys have probably seen this stuff already, but I thought I'd share some height info I found about the characters. I can't verify any of it, just thought I'd give other clueless people (like me!) some kind of idea of the different heights they want. :) Hope it's helpful!

"I don't know about Disneyland.. but at World the ranges are sorta as follows:
less 5' Duck height
5'-5'2 Mouse Height

Thanks Berlioz, added!

I had not seen the listing of height ranges before, very interesting. Seems to be a bit out of date though, where are Lilo and Stitch? :confused3 Thank you for posting.

Lilo and Stitch are "friends" with Mickey.

I'm new to these boards, but I have always wanted to try out to be a Disney character, but being a female and almost 6'1, do I stand a chance?

:welcome: to the DISboards!!

Yes! Disney needs people in your height range. According to the CP website, special consideration is given to individuals from 4'8" to 5 feet and from 6 feet to 6'3".
