    Pete's Dragon Elliot Storyboard Original Art and Color Model Cel with Photo Background (Walt Disney, 1977). This live-action and animated film brought the dragon Elliot to life. He was created by Disney Legend Inductee Ken Anderson. The film was released on 11/3/77. It was remade with Robert Redford in 2016. This lot is a rare original storyboard of Elliot picking apples, from the hand of his creator, Mr. Ken Anderson. Detailed image on the storyboard panel paper, measuring 7.5" x 5". Art is in graphite with black and red Conte crayon; the number 9 is written on the top left corner. The lot also has a rare 16 field hand-painted studio color model cel of Elliot on a color photo background, featuring the exact same apple-picking scene. Large image of 8". One of the only color photo setups we have come across. Cel is in a 20" x 16" mat with an opening of 14" x 10". Both Ken Anderson-drawn storyboard and cel exhibit minor handling wear; overall condition is Very Good. From the Joe Hale Archives.
