    The Little Mermaid Ariel and Prince Eric Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1989). "You seem very familiar to me. Have we met?" say Prince Eric upon encountering Ariel on the beach in this remarkable production cel setup from Disney's blockbuster hit feature film The Little Mermaid. The two hand-painted characters together measure approximately 13.5" x 8", practically filling the 16 field cel setup that bears a studio seal and is presented over a matching print background. This was the last Disney feature to use traditional hand-painted cels making art from it incredibly popular with collectors. Beginning with the next production, The Rescuers Down Under all Disney Feature animation was colored digitally. The art is in a 22" x 18" frame under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 13" x 9.5". under Plexiglas with a mat opening of 12" x 17". Cel condition is Very Good. Frame is sold as-is.
