    Description

    Aladdin Abu Model Sheet (Walt Disney, 1992).
    "Why, you hairy little thief..." as Aladdin affectionately refers to Abu. In Howard Ashman's original story treatment for Aladdin, Aladdin's companions were a trio of human thieves. These characters were dropped when the story went through major revisions. John Musker and Ron Clements, who joined the Aladdin project as directors, felt that the story had too many humans, and lacked characters that could take advantage of the medium of animation. To remedy the issue, Musker and Clements added a monkey sidekick for Aladdin, named Abu. In this lot we have the character model sheet for Abu. The sheet measures 17" x 12.5" with 14 different expressions and emotions for Abu. Model sheets are required when multiple artists are involved in the production of an animated film to help maintain continuity in characters from scene to scene. Included in this lot is a certificate of authenticity issued by Phil Sears Collectibles. Normal handling, otherwise, Fine condition.
