"Dear Basketball" with Glen Keane & Kobe Bryant

by admin

The crew was so excited (...ok more like freaking out) when they heard that Glen Keane, animator on "Aladdin," "Beauty and the Beast," and "The Little Mermaid," would be at the studio with the five time NBA champ, Kobe Bryant!

How did these two talents come together to mix their passions of art and basketball you may ask? Through an incredible animated short, adapted from Bryant's retirement poem, which follows his fascination with basketball and how that passion led to an extraordinary career.

The crew screened "Dear Basketball" at the studio and then joined Kobe, Glen, and Blue Sky's Chris Wedge (moderator) in a Q&A.
