Richard Rich is an American animated film director, producer and assistant director.

He started at the mailroom at the Walt Disney Studio in the late 1970s after founder Walt Disney had died, working with his successor as chief animator, Don Bluth. The only two films he directed at Disney were The Fox and the Hound and The Black Cauldron.

After 1985, he left Disney to found his own studio, Rich Animation Studios (later known as RichCrest Animation Studios), and directed a series of upbeat, inspiring Bible stories.

He is youngest animation director in the history of The Walt Disney Company but did not start out as an animator.

He taught piano lessons during his lunchhour which got the attention from Disney executives.
