DescriptionThe Little Mermaid Ariel Production Cel (Walt Disney, 1989). Here's a wonderful production cel of Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Walt Disney's 28th animated feature film tells the story of a young mermaid who is captivated by the world above the surface. When she falls in love with a human prince, she makes a deal with a villainous sea witch to become human, herself, and earn his love before the agreed time runs out. The Little Mermaid was the first film of the Disney Renaissance (1989 – 1999). Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the film received rave reviews upon its initial release. It quickly became a cultural phenomenon, with many critics hailing it as a return to the quality filmmaking Disney animation was known for during the days of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella. It won a number of accolades, specifically for its music, including two Academy Awards for Best Song and Best Score, two Golden Globes and one Grammy. The film still maintains a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The production cel was hand-painted bon 16 field acetate and paired with a background copy/print for presentation purposes. Included is a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Disney. The piece is housed in a matboard of 20" x 14.75" with an aperture of 15" x 10". This is a nice large image perfectly centered in the piece. Condition is Very Good.
