Phil Lord and Chris Miller are American film and television writers, producers, directors, actors and former animators. Lord and Miller met each other while at Dartmouth College. They are noted for being two of the youngest showrunners in the industry at the time.
In an interview with Robert K. Elder for his book The Best Film You've Never Seen, Phil Lord stated that "in an animated feature, you remake the movie three or four times, and it's really easy to get bummed out that the way you did it before didn't get green lit, didn't get paid, and you're making a totally different version of that movie."
