    The Lion King Scar Presentation Cel and Master Production Background (Walt Disney, 1994). The Lion King was released on 6/15/94. It was one of the most successful animated feature films of all time. It had several direct-to-video sequels, an animated TV series, and a still-running global Broadway Play success. It currently is in development for a live action movie. On February 11, 1995, The Art of The Lion King Auction was held in New York City, with approximately 256 Lion King art lots. This is Lot 20 from this sale, with a hand-painted cel of Scar. It features a magnificent hand-painted production background of the Pride lands. The production background is approximately 17" x 12". With no production cels used in this film, the original production animation drawings were used to create one-of-one hand-painted presentation cels to be placed over the production background. Impressive image of Scar, measuring 6". Matted with a mat opening of 16" x 12". A Disney seal is on the cel and original Disney COA is included. Magnificent background painting. Items from this historic sale rarely come up. Fine condition.
