An Abbreviated Legacy

“Our goal is to create quality animated films with compelling stories and strong characters and to continue Walt Disney’s legacy of hand drawn animation.” That was the business plan of Orlando-based Legacy Animation, a studio started by ex-Disney Feature (Florida) animators in January 2004. Now just a few months later, Legacy has shut down permanently. This was confirmed yesterday by one of the studio’s co-founders, Eddie Pittman, on the Animation Nation boards: “Legacy is in fact finished. I wish I could tell everyone more, but, for obvious reasons, I’m just not able to at this time.”
