Day 1: So thankful for this Disney family work trip to NYC. I’m filming a bonus feature with the brilliant @alanmenken to celebrate the upcoming 30th anniversary of the release of The Little Mermaid feature film in 2019. Can’t believe it’s been 30 years. I’m most excited to be working with our son @mcknley! Disney has hired him to shoot/edit a special “behind the scenes” video for the anniversary. We are so incredibly proud of him & thrilled for his first project with Disney. Welcome to the Disney Family, son!
