Disney Fact #124

glenn-mcqueen

Glenn McQueen was a Canadian animator who cut his teeth at Pacific Data Images, which eventually became DreamWorks Animation. In 1994, Glenn joined the team at Pixar Animation and worked on the studio’s very first film, 1995’s Toy Story, as an animator. His hard work and dedication quickly earned him plenty of respect among his fellow Pixar employees, and Glenn was promoted to supervising animator on films like 1998’s A Bug’s Life, 1999’s Toy Story 2, and 2001’s Monsters, Inc. Unfortunately, Glenn passed away in 2002 after battling skin cancer for several years. 2003’s Finding Nemo was dedicated to his memory, and in 2006, Glenn was forever immortalized after John Lasseter and his team named the hero of Cars, Lightning McQueen, after him.
