Jared Bush is an American screenwriter and producer, best known for co-directing and co-writing the Disney animated film Zootopia in 2016, writing the Disney animated film Moana in the same year and co-creating and executive producing the Disney XD animated series Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero. He also co-founded the production company Dark Castle Entertainment.
Bush co-wrote the script of Walt Disney Animation Studios' Zootopia and also co-directed the film along with Byron Howard and Rich Moore. He joined the Zootopia project early on, before it evolved from a spy film into a police procedural; he was excited to work on a spy film because both his father and grandfather had worked for the Central Intelligence Agency.
