    Disney's California Adventure "The Animator's Desk" Concept Drawing Group of 12 (Walt Disney, 1996). Five years before its opening, WDI made initial plans for an attraction at its new theme park, Disney's California Adventure, to be called "The Animator's Desk." It would have been located within the new "Hollywoodland" section of the park, in a theater setting with a live show. Some rare Aladdin-themed concept artwork from the early planning stages of the attraction featuring the Genie, Jafar, Iago, and Robin Williams. There are 12 pieces of concept artwork in all: 11 are "storyboarded" and are numbered. One is signed by the WDI Imagineer Topper Helmers, who was involved in the development of this project. Of the sheets, eleven measure 8.5" x 11" and one measures 17" x 11". Drawings are rendered in graphite and red pencil. Minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.
