DescriptionBeauty and the Beast Belle Production Rough Drawing (Walt Disney, 1991).
Beauty and the Beast was released on 11/13/91. The film was a significant commercial and critical success, earning over $424 million at the box office world-wide. Beauty and the Beast was also nominated for several awards, and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy (For the first time in an animated movie), with two other awards for its music. Famously, Beauty and the Beast was the first ever animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture, and was the only animated film to hold this honor until 2009, when the Academy Awards switched from five Best Picture nominations to ten. In this lot we have an outstanding rough production drawing of Belle. The image measures 5" tall and includes a studio stamp on the piece. The artwork was rendered in graphite on 12 field, 3-peghole animation paper with a red pencil triangular section on Belle's cheeks to represent the blush that would be added by Disney's computer animation system. Animation art from Beauty and the Beast is considered rare as the film did not use any traditional animation cels. Condition is Fine.
