Jeffrey Katzenberg is an American businessman, film studio executive, film producer, CEO of DreamWorks Animation. He was the former Studio Chairman of Disney in the late 80s and early 90s, playing a part in the Disney Renaissance. However, squabbles with Michael Eisner after the death of Frank Wells led to his forced resignation, and he would form DreamWorks in 1994. In one of his works, he notably voiced Rico in the Madagascar franchise. In 2016, after NBCUniversal bought DreamWorks Animation, Jeffrey Katzenberg moved to DreamWorks New Media.
He appeared in a 2006 segment of The Making of Little Mermaid, talking about the possibility of erasing "Part of Your World" from the movie but was talked into keeping it in the film by animator Glen Keane, to which he did and regretted that he almost took the song out of the film.
He didn't seem to really approve on the idea of having an "Applause" sign on Genie's back when Aladdin was in previews before its debut in theaters.
