Chris Sanders born Christopher Michael Sanders, is an American animation director, illustrator and voice actor. born March 12, 1962 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Chris Sanders was the middle of three children.


Christopher Michael “Chris” Sanders was born in March   12, 1962. Chris is an American film animator and voice actor best-known for co-directing and co-writing the Disney animated feature Lilo & Stitch, and providing the voice of Experiment 626 from Lilo & Stitch and Leroy from Disney’s Leroy & Stitch.Sanders attended Arvada High School in Arvada, Colorado. he latter joined and graduated from California institute of Arts

Chris Sanders began his career as a designer for Muppet Babies. He latter became the head storyboard artist for Walt Disney Feature Animation. chris as well served as a storyboard artist, artistic director, production designer, and character designer on Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, and Mulan.

He then created an allegorical picture book entitled The Big Bear Aircraft Company, with the subheading “A book for the big retreat” clarifying that it was created for a Disney offsite event. The book, Big Bear Aircraft Company is a thinly disguised version of Disney itself, and the book is critical of the creative process at the company, which prioritized “big ideas, figuring they will be big successes” and noted that if proposed aircraft movie ideas “don’t look the same as the ones that were built before, the boss, Big Bear, gets uncomfortable.” After handing each idea pitched by the “visual engineer” to a writer who “likes airplanes” but “has actually never worked on one before, and couldn’t tell you for sure what makes one fly”, the book states the assigned writer “is guaranteed of making the same mistakes every time. He will make his airplane look like every one he’s seen before …” In the end, the head of the company, Big Bear, gets an airplane that is “a lot like last year’s; not very inspiring and not very memorable. But people bought it before, and they’ll probably buy it again. By being smart, he’s insured his company’s survival.” However, since it is not the only aircraft company, these policies are destined to leave the company vulnerable to more imaginative competitors “with its wings of good reputation all shot off.” The story concludes that Big Bear should instead give the visual engineers “the two things they need to do their job: Bear’s trust and time” to allow smaller, more innovative ideas to flourish. Years later, to explain his motivation regarding the piece, Sanders wrote about his concern over “the ever-growing complexity of our films, and what I saw as an emerging pattern they were all cut from”, citing the example that during the story development for Mulan, one of the major concerns was the manner of the villain’s death rather than the idea that the villain had to die at all. This in turn motivated him to develop Lilo & Stitch, which he summarized as “a story about a villain who becomes a hero. In 1985 for an unsuccessful children’s book pitch in the late 1980s,. When Sanders was the head storyboard artist for Disney Feature Animation, then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner decided that, in the rise of the number of high-profile and large-budget Disney animated features during the mid-1990s, the studio might try its hand at a smaller and less expensive film. Chris Sanders was welcomed by Thomas Schumacher to pitch that idea, and Sanders reused the “Stitch” character he came up with. The story line required a remote, non-urban location, so Sanders chose Kauaʻi as the location.In the 2002 film Stitch became the central character Lilo & Stitch, which Sanders co-directed and co-wrote with Dean DeBlois. Sanders would also end up voicing the character he created for the film. The film’s commercial and critical success spawned a franchise with three sequel films and three television series, with Sanders reprising his role of Stitch throughout the original 2002–06 run of the franchise (Sanders did not reprise his role for the English dub of the anime Stitch! or the English-language-produced Chinese animated series Stitch & Ai, with Ben Diskin taking over the role for both series), as well in several later Disney crossover works such as Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Kinect: Disneyland Adventures, and the Disney
