    The Lion King Simba Storyboard Signed by Robert Stanton (Walt Disney, 1994). "I'm gonna be the main event, like no king was before. I'm brushin' up on lookin' down, I'm workin' on my ROAR!" From the upbeat and infectiously catchy musical number "I Just Can't Wait to Be King", here is a wonderful hand-painted original concept/storyboard painting created for The Lion King. This film was a massive phenomenon after its release, and it is widely considered to be the peak of the explosively successful Disney Renaissance of the 1990s. Its legacy continues to this day with the acclaimed Broadway adaptation, the recent CGI remake and the 2020 Lion King-inspired visual album Black is King by Beyonce among many others. This stunning painting rendered in gouache on illustration board is signed on the back by artistic supervisor Robert Stanton, whose resume includes production art for Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog, Beauty and the Beast and many more. The piece is framed by black tape around the edges and has a protective piece of acetate taped to the front. It measures 9.75" x 6.5", shows minor handling wear, and the condition is Very Good.
