Chief creative officer, Walt Disney Animation Studios; writer-director, “Frozen 2”

Beyond her executive duties, Lee wrote and directed “Frozen 2,” which has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time since its November release, a title it seems unlikely to surrender any time soon. And yet, having taken the top job of chief creative officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios just two years ago, we may only be seeing the beginning of Lee’s stewardship. Up next, the Southeast Asia-set “Raya and the Last Dragon,” about which she says: “I’m most proud of our studio for making an entire animated feature from over 400 different homes and, while apart, finding ways to be just as connected.”
