    Description

    Fantasia "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" Yen Sid the Sorcerer Production Cel Courvoisier Setup (Walt Disney, 1940). In the feature movie Fantasia, the Sorcerer Yen Sid ("Disney" spelled backwards) was the catalyst for Mickey Mouse's greatest moment on film. Nigel de Bruiler, a silent screen star, was hired to act out the scene for the animators reference. This magical and menacing hand-inked, hand-painted production cel is from the point where the Sorcerer has just taken his hat back after Mickey had abused it's power. It is an original Courvoisier setup, with cels are placed over a hand-painted Courvoisier background. Yen Sid is 6.75" tall. There is minor lifting of the layer with his eye highlights and glow. Very rare to find cels of this integral figure to the story, and this is one of the best of him we have ever seen! The piece is matted and framed with an inner image area of 12" x 8". In Fine condition.
