Howard Ashman appreciation.



 “He was an amazing influence on everybody. And I don’t want to compare him to Walt, but on the other hand, he had that kind of influence on everybody.” 

 Roy Disney on Howard Ashman, who passed away from AIDS 21 years ago today.
 I think I know what kind of influence Roy was talking about. Howard, like Walt, knew what he wanted, what sounded or looked the best, and inspired everyone who worked with him to deliver 110%. Howard gave a mermaid her voice, a beast his soul, and he got an orphan kitty to dream. For that, his mark on Disney will always be remembered and though he’s gone, he will always be remembered. And loved.

    I cry whenever I watch other Disney members talking about Howard Ashman. It was such a shame and he was a true artist.
