Who is Don Bluth?

Donald Virgil "Don" Bluth is an American animator, film director, producer, writer, production designer, video game designer and independent studio owner who is known for his departure from The Walt Disney Company in 1979 and his subsequent directing of animated films such as The Secret of NIMH, An American Tail, The Land Before Time, All Dogs Go to Heaven, and Anastasia, and his involvement in the laserdisc game Dragon's Lair. He is also known for competing with Disney during the years leading up to the films that would make up the Disney Renaissance.
