    Fantasia "A Lesson Learned" Limited Edition Cel (Walt Disney, 1999). In 1999, a special Fantasia hand-painted Limited Edition cel was created using original archival 1940 animation drawings from the Disney Animation Research Library. The drawings used were from Sequence 7 Scene 87 and 88. This hand-painted oversized cel features images of Mickey Mouse in his greatest role as The Sorcerer's Apprentice and the Sorcerer, Yen Sid (Disney spelled backwards!). This magnificent cel has nine ink colors and twenty-seven paint colors. This cel was painted by the Disney Ink and Paint Department, located on the main lot. It was an edition of only 300 and was an instant sell-out. The cel was hand-signed by 1992 Disney Legend Inductee, Mr. Joe Grant (1908-2005). Mr. Grant was co-writer on this film and was responsible for starting the Disney Character Model Department. He served two tours of employment with Walt Disney Studios. These are unusually large images, with sizes of 8" and 15". With only 300 made, this is the very low #9. Matted with an opening of 14" x 18", framed using Plexiglas, for an overall size of 23" x 27". A Disney seal is on the cel and Disney COA is on back of the frame. Frame is sold as-is; cel is in Fine condition.
