Bonnie Arnold (born 1952) is an American film producer who has worked at Walt Disney Feature Animation, Pixar Animation Studios and DreamWorks Animation. Arnold grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. She worked her way to Hollywood and caught the wave of computer-animation.

Life and career[edit]

Arnold has a B.S. in journalism from the University of Georgia and a M.S. in journalism from Boston University. Her interest in journalism led her to her first professional assignment as unit publicist for American Playhouse's debut production, King of America.:[1] Arnold's first job on a Hollywood feature was as production coordinator for Neil Simon's The Slugger's Wife, a 1984 film shot in Atlanta and produced by Ray Stark, who was responsible for many of Simon's and Barbra Streisand's movie hits. "I got a real sense of filmmaking the Hollywood way," Arnold recalls. :[2] After years as a freelancer, Arnold finally found her break as producer of Disney's Toy Story. When Toy Story became a box office smash, she produced Tarzan, overseeing a crew of 1,100 and a $150 million budget—five times that of "Toy Story."
