Today, I had the absolute insane pleasure of listening to Paul Briggs speak at my work! He was the head of story on Frozen and is the head of story on Big Hero 6, as well! (Not to mention, he was also on the Mulan/Hercules/Lilo and Stitch team production teams. Oh, and he was randomly the voice of Marshmallow too.) He explained the entire process of coming up with a story for a Disney film and then took the time to answer a ton of questions.
I think my favorite part of it all was listening to him speak on the importance of story. Above all, he asks his teams, why are making this film? Why is this story worth sharing?
And that’s what’s really awesome about Disney… these movies are telling really important stories and the movies have the power to really effect and inspire audiences with their stories. Story is what Disney is all about, and woooooow seeing someone like Paul Briggs talk about story is something I’ll never forget.
(also we got to see some adorable BH6 footage, and my excitement for this film is actually off the charts i need it now)
You know, if you watch the lion king closely, you can find a lot of simbalism.

You are simply stunning.
Wow, thank you! Very much!
This is the most important man in my entire life with me in the place that makes me happiest, Walt Disney World. He has supported me, motivated me, and believed in me for the last 21 years. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my Dad. He’s the bomb dot com.
Everything is Poca and nothing hurts.
no man will ever satisfy me the way beyonce does
Nothing makes me happier.
Look at this BEAUTIFUL cutting board my little brother made for me!!! I’m at a loss for words.
The streaks of darker wood symbolize the colors of the wind and Poca was laser engraved into the wood! He is incredible!
Obviously, I won’t be cutting anything ever on it. Ugh, so pretty.
