Trivia

  • Before joining DreamWorks, Trousdale was an animator at Disney, eventually being promoted as director for several projects. Ironically two of his films (Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame) served as inspiration for both themes within the Shrek films, and characters in spin-off novels and video games.
