    It is nice to have a truly creative producer as head. I know that it is only temporary, but it shows that the studios are moving in the right direction.

    Producer - filmography
    1. One by One (2004) (V) (producer)
    2. Lorenzo (2004) (executive producer)
    3. The Haunted Mansion (2003) (producer)
      ... aka Disney's The Haunted Mansion (USA: complete title)
    4. Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001) (producer)
    5. The Emperor's New Groove (2000) (executive producer)
    6. The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) (producer)
    7. The Lion King (1994) (producer)
    8. Beauty and the Beast (1991) (producer)
      ... aka Beauty and the Beast: Special Edition (USA: longer version)
    9. Roller Coaster Rabbit (1990) (producer)
    10. Tummy Trouble (1989) (producer)
    11. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) (associate producer)
    But more important than that is the fact that he is liked by the Animators (for the most part) and was a big part of the the success of Disney Feature Animation in the early 90s.

    Unlike anyone else at that level in 1990's WDFA management, Don had started back during the Walt Disney Productions era and got into the business because he liked Walt Disney and cartoons.

    He was mentioned in Jim Hill's "Black Cauldron" column today.

    Great news. You know he has been saving alot of potentially great projects lately? I know he kept Gnomeo and Juliet from getting cancelled and I think hes trying to get Rapunzel straighted out.
