We’ve lost another great soul and great artist to COVID-19, and it’s heartbreaking especially to Disney fans.

Ann Sullivan, a longtime Walt Disney Studios animator of some of our all time favorite disney films, has died from complications of COVID-19. 

She resided at the Motion Picture Television Fund’s (MPTF) skilled nursing facility in Woodland Hills, California.

Sullivan worked on nearly 20 animated Disney films in her career at Walt Disney Animation Studios including:

  • Lilo & Stitch
  • Pocahontas

“Ann Sullivan was a remarkably gifted and resilient woman who chased her dream of life in California and work at Walt Disney and succeeded with grace and resiliency.”
