Event Celebrates Disney TV Animation’s 30th Anniversary

Disney TV Animation celebrated its 30th anniversary with a special celebratory event hosted by ASIFA at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank.

The at-capacity event — filled within an hour of the announcement being posted on the D23 and ASIFA websites — featured a special panel discussion with the animation studio’s award-winning creative talent:

Bill Farmer (Disney Legend, voice of Goofy)
Paul Rudish (executive producer Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts)
Jymn Magon (writer, DuckTales, Darkwing Duck)
Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh (co-creators and executive producers, Phineas and Ferb)
Rob LaDuca (executive producer, Jake and the Never Land Pirates; storyboard artist, The Adventures of the Gummi Bears)
Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle (co-creators, executive producers and writers, Kim Possible).

The panel was moderated by D23’s Jeffrey Epstein and included sneak-peeks of the animation studio’s highly anticipated upcoming series.

Here’s a look at a short sizzle reel shown at the event that recaps Disney TVA’s history in under 90 seconds:

Eric Coleman, senior VP original series for Disney Television Animation, presented a first look at upcoming series Star vs. The Forces of Evil and Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero, both of which are slated to premiere on Disney XD in early 2015, as well as an advance look at an upcoming episode of the Emmy Award-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts.

Emily Hart, VP original programming for Disney Junior, shared a first look at early animation for Disney Junior’s The Lion Guard.
