Eric Goldberg is one of the most admired animators working today. After years of developing his craft in the commercial business in London, he exploded on the feature animation scene with the Genie in Aladdin.

Eric was also responsible for animating Phil in Hercules and he is currently animating on the upcoming film The Princess and the Frog.
