Exclusive: Glen Keane Might Be Working for Motorola

Is Glen Keane’s next animated project set up at smartphone manufacturer Motorola? The Google-owned company certainly wants you think so. I received a cryptic email this afternoon from Motorola…well, actually from “Pepe the Mouse,” who is the star of the company’s interactive motion-controlled short Windy Day directed by Jan Pinkava. The email had the subject line “My Friend Glen Keane.”

The email read in part: “It’s getting close to the holidays and all through the house, only one creature was stirring aside from this mouse.”

The “creature” was the above pic of Glen Keane, hard at work. Keane resigned from Disney in March 2012, after working at the company for 38 years.
