After the huge success of The Lion King, Mike’s involvement with Disney began a slow decline, beginning with his next role of Clopin on Huntchback which took him to Paris. From there the roles and shows became a tiring grind that eventually led him to Dreamworks which had a completely different approach to animation that frustrated him and drove him into the story department. In part 4 of my conversation with Mike continues to chronicle his career, provide interesting tidbits about the departure of Katzenburg, and the arrival of Pixar.
