Disney100 – Director Stephen Anderson
I had the honor and privilege of talking with animation director Stephen Anderson. He is the director of Meet the Robinsons (2007) and Winnie the Pooh (2011)–two great Disney films and both part of my Disney100 movie watching project this year. Stephen was also the director of season one of the Disney+ animated series Monsters at Work.
Here’s a link with more info about Disney Legend Burny Mattinson, who recently passed away and who worked with Stephen on Winnie the Pooh. Burny was the longest-serving cast member in the history of The Walt Disney Company and was due to receive his 70th anniversary service award (the first one ever awarded by Disney) on June 4.
Check out the newly released documentary about the making of The Emperor’s New Groove called Beware the Groove: The Making of a Cult Classic. Also check out the podcast that my friend Rachel Wagner and I recorded with the film’s documentarian and director Micah Hirsh.
