Product Description

Don Bluth never felt like a Donald. So people have always called him Don. A matinee of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs awakened something within him. Despite growing up in rural Texas and Utah, he practiced and worked hard to become an Hollywood animator. And after working alongside his idol Walt Disney, and on films including Sleeping Beauty, The Sword in the Stone, Robin Hood, Winne the Pooh, The Rescuers, and Pete's Dragon, he realized that the company had changed into something he didn't necessarily believe in. So he made the industry-shocking decision to start his own animation studio.

It was from that studio—Don's studio—that came such award-winning, generation-defining films as The Secret of NIMH, An American Tail, The Land Before Time, All Dogs Go to Heaven, Anastasia, and the video game Dragon's Lair.

Now, after more than half a century in the movie business, Don is ready to tell the story of his life. This book reveals how his passions for artistry, integrity, and his Mormon faith shaped him into the beloved icon whose creativity, entrepreneurship, and deeply held beliefs entertained, enthralled, and inspired millions across the globe.


"In his memoir, Somewhere Out There, Bluth shares the story of his life and career with a refreshing mix of self-deprecation and looking-in-the-mirror honesty . . . a surprisingly resonant read." —The Film Stage

"[Bluth’s] memoir may be a simple and bittersweet one, but it reveals a clear heart and a rigorous faith, in art and in those that love it." —Paste
