    Description

    The Lion King Children's Book Illustration Cel and Key Master Painted Background (Walt Disney, 1994). The 1994 animated feature film The Lion King was a global box office smash. It has spawned an animated TV series, several direct-to-video sequels, prequels, and a still going strong global Broadway musical play; it's scheduled for a CGI feature film remake in 2019. There were no production cels used in the making The Lion King, so original Disney artwork from this film is considered very rare. This is a one-of-a-kind hand-painted cel of Pumba, Timon, and Simba layout under the stars talking. This striking cel is in a Key Master hand-painted book production background. The setup, marked "Page 17," was created for a children's book published at the time of the original movie's release. Cel is 13" x 10.5"; character sizes are 3" to 6". Background is hand-painted, measuring 13" x 10". Cel includes a clear cover overlay for protection. Minor handling. Very Good condition.
