    Kevin Lima studied acting and theater design at Emerson College in Boston before enrolling in the CalArts Animation Program. After graduating, he took assignments designing characters and animating for the independently produced feature, THE BRAVE LITTLE TOASTER, before joining Walt Disney Feature Animation in 1987. For the following six years, he worked in one capacity or another on each of Disney’s next five animated features, OLIVER & COMPANY (1988), THE LITTLE MERMAID (1989), THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER (1990), and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991). He then took the director’s chair on A GOOFY MOVIE (1995), which was followed by TARZAN (1999) and his first live-action movie 102 DALMATIANS (2000). His most recent film, ENCHANTED (2007), combined a mixture of traditionally animated, live-action, and computer-generated characters.  Currently, he is in production on an animated Bollywood musical for DreamWorks Animation.
