We share a passion for telling rich stories that matter to audiences around the world in the way that Disney’s content always has. It is truly a privilege to help write this next chapter of the magic that I grew up on.”
Braun’s newest project for Disney Junior, “Pupstruction,” follows the adventures of the world’s first all-dog construction company, Pupstruction.
