It's hard to imagine that anyone interested in animation and voice-acting has not been impacted by the legacy of Walt Disney. Walt's nephew Roy Disney carried the torch and helped guide the company forward for many years. He passed away today at the age of 79. Here is a link to a letter from current Disney CEO Bob Iger, and a vintage video interview with Roy.
The great thing about film, television, and, in particular, animation...is that Roy's influence will live on. Just like Uncle Walt's. Inspiring future generations.
