Walt Disney Animation is making diversity its priority with its next four projects. Four directors of color are helming the next Disney animated movies, which includes Blindspotting director Carlos Lopez Estrada. Estrada is joining Suzi Yoonessi (Unlovable, Dear Lemon Lima) and Disney veterans Josie Trinidad and Marc Smith to develop new animated movies for theatrical release.
The Disney animation diversity initiative comes as Disney Animation’s chief creative officer Jennifer Lee works to expand the studio’s commitment to inclusion.
