Roy E. Disney Dies at 79; Rejuvenated Animation
Brooks Barnes"LOS ANGELES Roy E. Disney, who helped revitalize the famed animation division of the company founded by his uncle, Walt Disney, and who at times publicly feuded with top Disney executives, died on Wednesday in Newport Beach, Calif. He was 79.
"His death, at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, was caused by stomach cancer, a spokeswoman for the Walt Disney Company said. Mr. Disney, who had homes in Newport Beach and the Toluca Lake district of Los Angeles, was the last member of the Disney family to work at the entertainment conglomerate built by his uncle and his father, Roy O. Disney.
"As a boy the younger Roy would play in the halls of his uncle's studio, where animators often used him as a test audience as they toiled on movies like Pinocchio. As an adult he helped bring the animation studio back from the brink, overseeing a creative renaissance that led to The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King."
