Update: Disney named Jennifer Lee as one of the directors of its animated film Frozen. What makes this notable is that there are very few women given the opportunity to direct animated feature films. She will co-direct with Chris Buck. Lee is one of the writers of Frozen as well as Disney Animation's current hit Wreck-It Ralph.
Here are the female directors of animated feature releases from major Hollywood studios: Brenda Chapman was the first with DreamWorks' Prince of Egypt; she was initially hired to direct Pixar's Brave before being replaced by Mark Andrews. Jennifer Yuh Nelson directed Kung Fu Panda 2 and is currently working on Kung Fu Panda 3. Jill Culton directed Open Season for Sony Pictures Animation. Lorna Cook helmed DreamWorks' Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.
