You’ve probably never even heard of the man without whom Disney would be unable to function, who is credited in multiple movies, and who is loved by all staff.
In addition to being a technician who is in charge of important technical stuff, Carlos Benavides also moonlights as caffeination specialist.
He kept candy cute in Wreck-It Ralph.
He made dreams come true, and then new dreams come true the next day, for animators in Tangled.
His iced macchiatos were the bomb for the makers of Frozen.
Time ticked a little faster in Meet the Robinsons, thanks to Carlos.
He helped Tigger get his bounce back in 2011’s Winnie the Pooh.
Carlos Benavides, the caffeinator, the King of Coffee, my hero.
