Movie studio giant Disney is looking for kids to cast in an upcoming "live action feature," and one of three casting calls is being held in Minnesota.

Two of the casting events have already been held, in New York and Los Angeles, with the third and final one being held at the Mall of America this Saturday.

The studio is looking for boys and girls aged 7-10 for an as yet undisclosed Disney live action feature.

Here are the descriptions of the roles:

Girl: Seeking ages 7 - 10 to portray a precocious 8 year old who is brunette with brown eyes.

Boy: Seeking ages 7 - 10 to portray a precocious 8 year old who is blond with blue eyes...

While the feature hasn't been revealed, one of the casting directors is Nina Gold, who is known for her work on HBO's "Game of Thrones," Oscar-winning movie "The King's Speech," and Netflix's "The Crown."

The other casting director is Debbie DeLisi, who worked on casting for Steven Spielberg's "Ready Player One," and was in charge of Minnesota casting for "Captain Phillips," finding the four lead Somali pirates, including Oscar-nominated Barkhad Abdi.

The casting call will be held at the Mall of America Executive Center at Level 4, East between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Children most be accompanied by a guardian and must bring a "non-returnable photo" if possible.
