Title: Writer, Kung Fu Panda
Glenn Berger (and his partner Jonathan Aibel) is responsible for some of today’s most beloved and popular family films. To date, his movies have grossed nearly $2.5 billion dollars in worldwide box office. Aibel and Berger met right out of college while working as management consultants in Boston. It was there they both discovered their passion for comedy writing and lack of passion for management consulting. So they threw away their suits and briefcases and moved to Los Angeles. Since then, Aibel and Berger have written some of the most successful family films of the past decade. They pride themselves on scripting films that appeal to audiences of all ages, with a combination of character-based comedy, action, and emotion.
Glenn is best known for writing and co-producing the first two Kung Fu Panda films (both of which were nominated for Academy Awards® for best Animated Film) and is currently at work on the third. He is also just finished writing the screenplay for a SpongeBob Squarepants movie. Other family film credits include two films in the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise and Dreamworks’ first 3D film, Monsters vs. Aliens.
In addition to his work in film, Glenn was part of the original staff of the animated Fox hit King of the Hill. He remained at the show for six seasons, and rose to become executive producer, garnering four Emmy® nominations and one win.
