After much deliberation and even more hugging, Baymax, the lovable personal companion robot and star of Walt Disney Animation Studio's action-packed comedy adventure "Big Hero 6," was today named Most Huggable Character of 2015 on National Hugging Day.

The coveted award was presented by Ambassador of Hugs Kevin Zaborney, founder and creator of National Hugging Day. Baymax humbly accepted the award from his residence in San Fransokyo, where he attributed the honor to his "non-threatening, huggable design" and said he looks forward to spending the upcoming year giving and receiving hugs from all.

The Most Huggable Character Award coincides with this month's National Hugging Day, held annually on Jan. 21. National Hugging Day was created to encourage people around the world show more affection in public.

Disney's "Big Hero 6" will be available nationwide on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere Feb. 3 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack Feb. 24.
