Disney Legend Glen Keane to keynote SIGGRAPH Asia 2020 Virtual

Glen Keane, Director and Academy Award-winning animator, will take center stage at SIGGRAPH Asia 2020 Virtual, December 4 – 13, as Keynote Speaker. 

A 38-year veteran of Walt Disney Feature Animation, Glen Keane trained under Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men and is most noted for his creations of many beloved Disney characters such as The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Beast, Pocahontas, Tarzan, and Rapunzel. 

In his Keynote session at SIGGRAPH Asia 2020, Keane will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the origins and making of his animated feature directorial debut ‘OVER THE MOON’, a co-production with Pearl Studio and Netflix! 

‘OVER THE MOON’ is an animated musical adventure feature film about a girl who builds a rocket ship and blasts off to the moon in hopes of meeting the legendary Moon Goddess, Chang’e. When she gets to the “other side”, she unexpectedly discovers a whimsical world filled with fantastical creatures — some of whom threaten her and others who ultimately help her find her way home.
