Animated Animations named publisher of Walt Disney Animation Art Cel Portfolio – news – Brief Article
BURBANK, Calif.–Animated Animations has been named the global publisher of the Walt Disney Animation Art cel portfolio. Animated Animations will work closely with Disney to produce and market limited-edition sericels and limited-edition, hand-painted cels for the Walt Disney Art Portfolio, one of the artwork portfolios overseen by Walt Disney Art Classics, a division of Disney Hardlines. The hand-painted cels will continue to be painted by the Ink and Paint Artists at the Walt Disney Studio, according to company officials.
“Animated Animations will continue the distinctive legacy of Disney animated art, as well as the tradition of quality and creativity a Disney collector has come to expect” said Harry Dolman, senior vice president of hardlines for Disney Consumer Products.
Said Marc Segan, president of Animated Animations, “We are privileged to have the opportunity to help carry forward the heritage of Walt Disney Animation Art. We will strive to add our own bit of magic to this magnificent portfolio.”
Previously, Animated Animations worked with Walt Disney Art Classics to create traditional animation art coupled with innovative technology resulting in artwork that talks and moves. This specialized portfolio continues to be created and published by Animated Animations with new Disney images and formats to be released this fall. Animated Animations also designs specialty lamps, clocks and phones featuring Disney character voices when ringing.
Walt Disney Animation Art is available at independently owned Preferred Gallery retailers worldwide and also from select Disney Stores and Disney Theme Parks.
