About Action Movie Kid

In a world… where chaos reigns, carpets turn to lava, and kids are forced to finish all their cereal, one boy has risen to the challenge—Action Movie Kid! Dreamworks animator Daniel Hashimoto uses his expertise to create fantastic and lifelike CGI worlds inhabited by his son James, turning childhood imagination into epic viral videos. Whether he’s in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader or swimming in Scrooge McDuck’s money bin, Action Movie Kid is bringing smiles to his 875K+ YouTube subscribers. He recently unleashed his powers on an unsuspecting vending machine in a promotional video for the Fox show The Gifted and spoofed Stranger Things to teach others about bike safety… a video that proves he’s not the only kid in the family with powers.
