Ron Clements and John Musker have worked together over a span of more than 30 years, starting off co-directing The Great Mouse Detective, which debuted in 1986, before moving on to create two of Disney’s biggest films: The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin. From that work, they went on to create Hercules, Treasure Planet, the very charming The Princess and the Frog, and most recently, the Oscar-nominated Moana.
This week’s excitement started with the media preview for the Canadian International AutoShow at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The AutoShow opened for the public yesterday, and it’s bound to be another big year for the event–there’s a lot to see and do: classic cars, concepts, prototypes, and new vehicles that are either coming out, or making their way to market late this year.
