    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 50th Anniversary Limited Edition 2-Cel Suite #154/500 (Walt Disney, 1987). In 1987, the Walt Disney Company had a major Studio-wide celebration for Snow White's official 50th Birthday. Adriana Caselotti, the voice of Snow White, went on a major promotional tour, the film was theatrically re-released, and a great deal of effort was put behind this anniversary. The company released a special hand-painted limited edition suite of two cels with this release. The edition size was 500 and was an almost overnight sell-out; in fact, this two-cel set has been sold out for over 30 years! The suite of two used original 1937 archived animation drawings to create the images. The cels were painted on the studio lot in the famous Walt Disney Ink and Paint Department. One cel showed the Evil Queen with the Heart Box, from Sequence 2/Scene 8, while the second cel is an unbelievable film finale from Sequence 16A/Scene 14. It shows the Prince with Snow White and ALL seven dwarfs in the film's climatic "Happily Ever After" moment. These 16 field hand-painted cels are on attractive print backgrounds for presentation purposes. A Disney seal is on each cel, and Disney COAs are on back of the mats. This is a rare matched set, #154 of only 500 in the edition. Matched sets rarely come up. Both limited edition cels are included in this group. Very Good condition.
