    Mulan Shan Yu and Emperor Presentation Cel and Hand-Painted Production Background Setup (Walt Disney, 1998). "I tire of your arrogance old man. Bow to me!" Disney's Mulan was a box office hit in 1998, and a live-action version is in the works for 2020. This is a rare hand-painted production background with a specially created presentation cel of Shan Yu and the Emperor created from an original animation drawing. The hand-painted production background measures 13" x 31" and is marked SEQ 20 SCN 77.3. This cel and background setup was originally sold as lot # 122 at the "Art of Disney's Mulan" auction held in New York City in 1999. The pan cel has character images of 7" and 7.5" tall and bears a Disney seal in the lower left corner. A studio Certificate of Authenticity is included. Artwork from this film and this auction are considered extremely rare. Some minor handling wear; otherwise, condition is Fine. The Plexiglas-front frame is sold as-is.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
