    The Lion King Pride Rock Pre-Production Background (Walt Disney,1994). Perched high on the summit over Pride Rock, Mufasa says to his son Simba, "Everything the light touches is our kingdom." This is when we first see young Simba and his father Mufasa. The scene comes right after the beautifully animated "Circle of Life" opening sequence of The Lion King. This is an outstanding pre-production background of the summit over Pride Rock. This gorgeous painting of the Summit/Pride Rock is on a cel with amazing foliage around it. The 16 field cel is placed on a beautifully hand-graduated sky background. The border is marked Seq. 3/Scene 22. A Disney studio stamp is on the reverse. Very little production art of this quality has been seen from this film making this one-of-a-kind piece of art extremely rare. The piece measures 13" x 17". The artwork has a slight cel tear in the top right border far away from the painted area. Tape on border, minor handling wear; condition is Very Good.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
