Alessandro Carloni is an Italian film director, animator, and art director, best known for his work with DreamWorks Animation in general, particularly the Kung Fu Panda films.
Since joining DreamWorks Animation in 2002, Carloni served as an animation supervisor on Kung Fu Panda, a story artist on Kung Fu Panda 2, and head of story on How To Train Your Dragon 2. On January 31, 2012, Carloni was slated to make his directorial debut with the computer-animated/traditionally animated film Me and My Shadow, which was later pushed back into development following massive lay-offs in February 2013 and its release date assumed by Mr. Peabody & Sherman. In February 2015, Jennifer Yuh Nelson personally requested Carloni to come aboard as co-director on Kung Fu Panda 3, in order to meet its release dateline. He was a nominee at the 36th Annie Awards.
