    Hercules Painted Production Background with Young Hercules and Pegasus Presentation Cel Setup (Walt Disney, 1997). "I will beat the odds. I will go the distance" Hercules sings as he flies astride Pegasus in this scene from the 1997 Disney hit feature film. This was lot #23 in "The Art of Disney's Hercules" Auction which was held in New York City on June 30, 1998 where 123 lots from this movie were offered for sale. Production cels weren't used in the making of this film, so original animation drawings were provided to the Disney Ink and Paint Department to create one-of-one presentation cels. These cels were placed over the actual hand-painted production backgrounds to create Master setups. This is an oversized hand-painted production background on board measuring 19.5" x 24". The one-of-a-kind hand-painted presentation cel features teenage Hercules flying on his winged horse and best friend Pegasus. It's an inspiring image with a great color palette, marked SEQ 7 SCN 48. This is the closest you can get to a Key Master setup from this Disney feature. It is framed under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 18" x 23.5" in a 28" x 33" frame with a Certificate of Authenticity on the back. Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
