    Fantasia "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" Original Production Cel with Signatures (Walt Disney, 1940). Fantasia, Walt Disney's masterpiece of film making was released on 11/13/40 in theatrical roadshow engagements held in thirteen U.S. cities. Produced by Walt Disney with story direction by Joe Grant and Dick Huemer and production supervision by Ben Sharpsteen, it is the third feature from Walt Disney Feature Animation. The film consists of eight animated segments set to pieces of classical music conducted by Leopold Stokowski; seven of which are performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra. Music critic and composer Deems Taylor acts as the film's Master of Ceremonies, who introduces each segment in live action interstitial scenes. From Fantasia we have an extraordinary production cel featuring Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice. The trimmed cel is hand-inked, hand-painted and paired with a hand-painted presentation background. The piece is in a frame of 20.5" x 23" with a mat opening of 8" x 8". Frame sold as-is. Included in the frame are signatures of Disney Legend Inductees, Eyvind Earle, Ollie Johnston, Frank Thomas, and Ken O'Connor. The artwork is in Very Good condition. From the MacLaughlin Family Disney Collection.
