Veteran Disney animator Glen Keane is leaving the company that he’s called home for many years, THR is reporting. The man who worked on such Disney movies as The Little Mermaid, Tarzan and most recently Tangled gave the news through a public statement. “I owe so much to those great animators who mentored me…as well as to the many other wonderful people at Disney whom I have been fortunate to work with in the past nearly 38 years,” he said. It is unknown why Keane is leaving the Mouse House, but it’s apparently not because he’s done with animation. “I am convinced that animation really is the ultimate form of our time with endless new territories to explore,” he said. “I can’t resist its siren call to step out and discover them.”
