In the world of animation, John Musker's name is associated with some of the greatest films Disney has ever created for the screen, including "The Little Mermaid" (1989) "Aladdin" (1992) and most recently "Moana" (2016), Disney's 56th animated feature film. Critically acclaimed, "Moana", directed by John, received two Academy Award nominations in 2016 for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.
Over the decades, Disney's classic films and beloved characters helped forge a golden age, a renaissance in animation. John Musker has been part of that renaissance since he first became an animator on The Fox & the Hound in 1981.
During his 40-year career at Walt Disney Animation Studios, John honed every aspect of his art, working as an animator, storyboard artist, writer, director, and producer. Today, retired from Disney, John continues to create and is currently animating his own short film by hand.
