Robert Walker, a Disney artist and co-director of Disney’s 44th feature film – Brother Bear, has died suddenly at age 54 from a suspected heart attack.

In the AWN article by Jennifer Wolfe, Jim Walker is cited as noting of his older brother “He was just a down-to-earth, quiet, thoughtful guy who cared about the people around him.” Robert Walker leaves behind a nine (9) year old daughter, and a legacy of work that includes his contribution to the Disney films: The Rescuers Down Under (1990), Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992), The Lion King (1994), Mulan (1998) and Lilo & Stitch (2002).

“…the world is full of magic. The source of this magic is the ever-changing lights that dance across the sky. …these lights are the spirits of our ancestors, and ..they [have] the power to make changes in our world.”  – Denahi

 

Dance well Robert, let your daughter and brother gaze upon the night and morning sky, knowing that you are dancing, and changing the world with your power.

  • Woaw, RIP Robert. Sorry I didn’t get to shake your hand and tell you how much you liven up my childhood with Lilo and Stitch and The Lion King before you pasted away. Those films have turned me into the animation lover I am today.

Tell us what you think!
