  12. Congratulations Andreas!

    Well deserved, you are one of the few animators who embody the spirit of the Walt Disney company and Walt Disney animation.

    I believe I did mention in person that I am sincerely grateful for you taking time out of your day to speak with me and look at my sketch book.
    The advice you gave me sincerely renewed my passion for animation and drawings.
    This will always be remembered.

    You are a true Disney Legend!

    I can't wait to see what the future holds!

    Kindest regards, Rene Pompa

  16. I would like to second the student's comment. I wasn't quite 5 when the Little Mermaid hit theaters, and your characters were a big part of my childhood.

  17. Hi Andreas,

    My name's Mitchell. I'm a managing at VICE Media, the fastest growing youth company in America. We're behind the hit HBO show VICE and the popular VICE.com, which has over 5 million followers on Facebook. I was interested in writing a profile of Andreas Deja about his amazing career and new honor as a Disney Legend. Previously, I have written positive profiles of Mike Tyson, Paris Hilton, and Ann Coulter. I thank you for your time and look forward to speaking to you soon. My email is Mitchell.Sunderland@VICE.com.

    Thanks,

    Mitchell

  19. I was so excited from all the photos I saw from the Disney Facebook pages. I got so bummed I missed out on the convention. I have to say your photo of Ron Clements and John Musker is so cool. That had to be a great moment reuniting with them. So how does it feel to have the title of Disney Legend?
