Disney is looking for Filipino lolas for an upcoming film

If you're a Filipino woman of a certain age, get your audition tapes ready, because Walt Disney Studios is searching for Filipino lolas to cast in an upcoming Disney film.

In a casting call on job portal Project Casting, Katie Doyle Casting and Sarah Finn Casting (Avengers: Endgame, The Mandalorian, Guardians of the Galaxy) said that they were looking for female applicants aged 50-90 years old of Filipino or Filipino-American descent. They must be based in Hawaii and have authorization to work in the United States, either as a US citizen, green card holder, or O-1 visa holder. They must also be comfortable traveling to Atlanta, Georgia, where the movie will be filmed.

Hawaii News Now reported the same casting call in December 2020.

Having professional acting experience isn't required, but being in fluent English is. Applicants for the role must submit a short introduction clip describing their family or favorite activity in either English or Tagalog. The introduction must be in English.

Further details on the production haven't been released, but Project Casting cited in a press release that the upcoming Spider-Man 3 film, which is co-produced by Disney's Marvel Studios, is currently filming and casting in Atlanta. – Rappler.com
