I’ve met Peter Schneider, former chair of the Walt Disney Studios, a couple times, all in his capacity as head of Walt Disney Feature Animation. He was nice to me even though I was just a fan. His career wasn’t painted so brightly in Disney War, so I’m happy that he’s landed on his feet. In fact, he’s producing on Broadway now, something he did with Disney after his work at Feature Animation. The show you ask? How about Sister Act with music by Alan Menken, no less. This has potential.
In 2001, Peter Schneider, now 53, walked away from his job as chairman of
Walt Disney Studios, the Industry equivalent of Apollo cashing out on
immortality for a dame.
