    Tarzan Feature Animation Employee-Only Cel (Walt Disney, 1999). Tarzan was Disney feature animation's 37th release. It starred Tony Goldwyn as the voice of Tarzan, and Minnie Driver as the voice of Jane Porter, with music by Phil Collins. There were no hand-painted production cels used in the making of this box office hit. Disney Feature Animation produced 13 different cels using the original animation drawings, offered to Feature Film Employees only. A total of 330 pieces were made. These were never sold to the public. Here is a rare example of a Feature Animation cel, from the scene where Tarzan first meets Jane, Scene 13.5/Sequence 25. After rescuing Jane from a pack of baboons, Tarzan listens to her, tickles her, then touches her hand. The hand-painted cel is on a print background, made from the original production background. The cel, numbered #40, has a Disney Feature Animation seal and a Disney Employee Only COA. Nice images of this iconic scene, each 7". The cel was given out unsigned; please note that this cel was hand-signed by Tarzan supervising animation, Disney Legend Inductee Mr. Glen Keane. His signature is considered rare on Employee Only Feature Animation cels; in fact, ANY artwork from this film is rare. Matted with an opening of 16" x 10" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 26" x 20". Frame sold as-is. Cel is in Very Good condition.
