Website description:
"animation cels created for Walt Disney's 1988 movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit. These cels were used in the film or created in preproduction. Most of the cels are made of hand-painted acetate that was cut and attached to photographic prints of the live-action images in the film. Together they are called a 'setup' and were matted specifically for their inclusion in the 1989 sale The Art of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Most mats have the Walt Disney Company blindstamp and the setups have the Touchstone Pictures and Amblin Entertainment copyright stickers on the reverse."

Prices on each piece will vary. Bids can be placed online and via phone. Preregistration is required. Please visit for more information.
