    Aladdin Production Background with Palace Guards Presentation Cel (Walt Disney, 1992). "He's got the monkeys! Let's see the monkeys..." The palace guards of Agrabah get caught up in the celebration of the arrival of Prince Ali Ababwa in this scene from Aladdin. In October of 1993 "The Art of Aladdin" Auction was held and it offered 250 original hand-painted production backgrounds from the film for sale. By this time production cels were a thing of the past at Disney Feature Animation, so the studio took original archived animation drawings from each background scene and had the Disney Ink and Paint Department create one-of-one cels to accompany them. The auction brought record prices for the time and this is lot number 148 from that sale. The beautiful backgrounds from Aladdin were overseen by background supervisors Ric Slaiter and Kathy Altieri. Here are palace guards Razoul, Fazal, and Hakim who together measure 6.5" x 12" on a 16 field presentation cel with a Disney seal in the lower right. It's over an original hand-painted production background of the palace gates. This one-of-a-kind setup is framed with glass, with a mat opening of 11" x 16", in a 18.5" x 23.5" frame. A very limited amount of original art from this wildly popular Disney feature film was ever made available for sale. Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
