Jennifer Lee is taking the reigns as CCO at Walt Disney Animation where she was the director of Frozen.

"Jennifer Lee and Pete Docter are two of the most gifted filmmakers and storytellers I've ever had the pleasure to work with", Horn said in a statement. My hope is to support the incredible talent we have, find new voices, and work together to tell original stories. Docter joined Pixar in 1990 and directed animated films such as "Up" and "Inside Out".

Two-time Oscar-winner Docter (Monsters, Inc.; Up; Inside Out) was one of the founding animators/storytellers at Pixar alongside the likes of Lee Unkrich (Coco) and Andrew Stanton (WALL-E); he's now writing Toy Story 4 and is expected to write and direct an untitled Pixar project destined for the screens in 2021. Frozen went on to earn the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Here's what Docter had to say about his new role. "It is not something I take lightly; making films at Pixar has been my chronic obsession since I started here 28 years ago". The "Up" director - who also wrote/directed "Inside Out", and shares screenwriting credits with Lasseter on the first two "Toy Story" films - also vowed, "Together we will keep pushing animation in new directions, using the latest technology to tell stories we hope will surprise and delight audiences around the world".
