Lee

Chief Creative Officer

When Lee was named Disney Animation CCO in June 2018, it was decided she would split her time between executive and creative duties, and the strategy has been paying off. As co-writer and co-director (with Chris Buck) of “Frozen” (2013) and “Frozen 2” (2019) — with global box office of $1.27 billion and $1.45 billion, respectively — Lee has helmed the top two highest-grossing animated features of all time. Other recent efforts include writing the book for “Frozen: The Broadway Musical,” which brought her a Tony nomination for best book of a musical in 2018, and the adapted screenplay for the 2018 live-action feature “A Wrinkle in Time.” The company’s production slate includes animated feature “Raya and the Last Dragon,” executive produced by Lee and set to release in March 2021 via theaters and “Premier Access” on Disney Plus, in addition to several series also set for the Disney streamer.
