    The Black Cauldron Horned King Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1985). This film based loosely on Welsh mythology represents a lot of firsts for Disney animation. It was the first animated film by the studio to receive a PG rating, the first to feature computer generated imagery and the most expensive animated film ever made at the time. This is an original hand-painted production cel of the Horned King with glaring red eyes who measures a staggering 7.5" x 12.5". He's on a 16 field cel which bears a Disney seal in the lower right and is numbered K003 in the lower right. It's an incredible image of arguably the scariest looking Disney Villain ever. The piece is matted with an opening of 11" x 14" in a 16" x 20" mat and includes a Disney Certificate of Authenticity affixed to a sheet of brown backing paper. There is evidence of lamination separation around the edge of the image; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
