Christopher Michael "Chris" Sanders (born March 12, 1962) is a California Institute of the Arts (Calarts) graduate, and a present animation director, screenwriter, animator and voice actor.

Sanders is best known for creating Disney's animated feature film Lilo & Stitch, which he wrote and directed alongside Dean DeBlois, as well as co-writing and co-directing the first How to Train Your Dragon film (also alongside DeBlois, who later wrote and directed both sequels himself).
