"A number of animators fired by Disney when it closed its Florida animation studios last year have formed their own company, Legacy Animation Studios, and announced Thursday that they plan to set up shop in Winter Garden, Florida later this month. 'We believe that traditionally animated films are still a viable form of entertainment,' Legacy's directing manager, Eddie Pittman, said in a statement. 'Our goal is to create quality animated films with compelling stories and strong characters and to continue Walt Disney's legacy of hand drawn animation.'"
