The brothers Bancroft have the honor of hosting Story Artist and Director of “Prince of Egypt” and “Brave”, Brenda Chapman. Tom and Tony get her to tell great stories of working on early versions of Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid, her legacy with women in animation, and where she’s headed now.
Brenda Chapman is the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. She is a writer, animation story artist and director. In 1998, she became the first woman to direct an animated feature from a major studio, DreamWorks Animation's The Prince of Egypt. She co-directed the Disney·Pixar film Brave, becoming the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
