    The Lion King Cast Member Only Limited Edition Cel #39/188 (Walt Disney, 1994). "I've really missed you" says Nala. "I've missed you too" says Simba. This is the exchange right after Nala finds Simba. It is a pivotal scene that leads into the Academy Award winning song "Can You Feel the Love Tonight." There were no production cels used in the making of The Lion King so the studio hand-painted limited edition cels exclusively for the Disney Feature Animation Cast Members. These cels were created using the original animation drawings. The cels were painted by the world-famous Walt Disney Ink and Paint Department located on the studio lot in Burbank. These "employee only" cels were never sold to the public and are very rare, with only 188 produced. This piece is number 39 and is from Sequence 15/Scene 145. The cel has a Disney Feature Animation seal and a Certificate of Authenticity. Images of Simba and Nala measures 9" and 10". The cel is on a print background for presentation purposes. Minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
