Mark Andrews is a Pixar employee, best known as a director and screenwriter of the 2012 Pixar feature film Brave. He was the story supervisor for The Incredibles, directed the short film One Man Band and co-wrote the short films Jack-Jack Attack and One Man Band.

Andrews studied animation at the Character Animation Program at CalArts. He is also considered to be Brad Bird's "right-hand man". Some of his student films have been featured at MOMA's exhibition TOMORROWLAND: CalArts in Moving Pictures. Unlike other CalArts alumni, he is not a fan of Disney films, and claimed he was a bigger fan of Kimba the White Lion, Speed Racer, and Robotech.

He is the father of Maeve Andrews, who voiced Jack-Jack Parr in The Incredibles.[3] Andrews replaced Brenda Chapman as director of Brave (2012).[4] Both were credited as directors, and they won the 2013 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. As of January 2013, he is writing and directing another original film at Pixar.[5][6][7]
