Roy started out by making some of Disneys best loved nature films
While investors (who definitely didn't have the best interests of Disney) were trying hostile takeovers of Disney with the intention of dismantling the company and selling off its assets, Roy organized a consortium of "white knight" investors to fight off the takeover attempts which led to Eisner and Wells being brought on. Roy soon returned to the company as vice-chairman of the board of directors and chairman of the animation department, later named Walt Disney Feature Animation.
This department was responsible for such films as The Lion king, which turned Disney around.
DisneyWar by James B. Stewart covers part of this era too. But this lovely book goes into great depth about Roy's family history and life, which has been virtually unknown.
