Finch Christopher. The Art of The Lion King. New York, Hyperion, 1994.

JPEG / 110 MB / Eng / 192 pages / 0786860286 / 978-0786860289

The Last epic movie by the greatest animation studio of all times. (Well, at least the last one that really worths watching.)

- Concept art, colour pencil storyboards, and film stills.
- Character Designs and Background paintings.
- Sadly, no interviews or explanations of any kind. You only have some lines explaining the plot.

I don't know if an artbook needs any further explanation, so I would like to say a few words about a rumor that has spread through the web. It is said that with LK Disney committed plagiarism, copying scenes and characters from Tezuka's Jungle Taitei.

If you ever watched Jungle Taitei you know this is bullshit, because it suck sooo bad (yeah I'm making a really stupid argument... that's not even an argument!... who cares... let me tell you my golden rule: if you can do it better than the one you took it from, and you raise a piece of trash to the heights of art, that's not plagiarism that's merely... inspiration). So stop repeating this kind of things, you put yourself in evidence. I like Tezuka, but it's not fair to compare him with Disney.
