The Future of Storytelling: Glen Keane

Posted By on June 28, 2016

Over nearly four decades at Disney, Glen Keane animated some the most compelling characters of our time: Ariel from The Little Mermaid, the titular beast in Beauty and the Beast, and Disney’s Tarzan, to name just a few.

The son of cartoonist Bil Keane (The Family Circus), Glen learned early on the importance of holding onto your childhood creativity—and how art can powerfully convey emotion.

Keane has spent his career embracing new tools, from digital environments to 3D animation to today’s virtual reality (VR), which finally enables him to step into his drawings and wander freely through his imagination.
