Nice companion with lots of storyboard art,
This review is from: The Art of The Lion King (Hardcover)
The Lion King was the first movie I watched in the cinema. Although I can't remember anything about the movie today, I do remember that I liked it very much. I was 13 back then.
The Art of the Lion King is an oversized art book containing concept art, colour pencil storyboards and film stills. Some of the film stills when blown up over two pages still look fabulous. The concept art is amazing, specifically the stylized character designs and some of the background paintings.
The art is arranged according to story acts, and there are a lot of storyboards. Unfortunately, the accompanying text are only the plot lines.
Right at the end is the afterword, which is actually the production process of the movie. Here are stories on how Lion King was scripted, research done (including a trip to East Africa), things happening behind the scenes like the duties of the cleanup artists, using CAPS (computer software) to animate the film, creating special effects like rain or fire and other special effects.
It's a nice companion to the movie.

The attached video is for the wrong book. The video is for Christopher Finch's "Art of The Lion King", but the item being sold here is Sotheby's auction book. For some reason all of the other reviews seem to be for the wrong book also. The Christopher Finch book is great, but the Sotheby's auction artwork catalog is also cool. But if anyone buys the Sotheby's catalog based on the video they're going to be sorely disappointed.
