John Musker is no stranger to successful animated films. He and partner Ron Clements helped to refresh the Disney catalog and the animation field as a whole with outstanding films such as The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, creating a new generation of memorable characters. In a world of CG animation, Musker made a bold move to return to hand-drawn films which paid off by way of this year's Oscar nomination for The Princess and the Frog.
Selected Filmography: The Princess and the Frog, Waking Sleeping Beauty, Treasure Planet, Hercules, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, The Great Mouse Detective, The Black Cauldron, and The Fox and the Hound.
