Thank you to Disney and Pixar Studios for hosting me during the #PixarCocoEvent, which included a visit to The Walt Disney Family Museum.
Even if you’ve never heard of Andreas Deja, you’ve definitely seen his work.Deja was the supervising animator for the characters of Scar, Jafar, Gaston, Hercules, Mama Odie and Lilo Pelekai. His work is currently on display in a special exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum.
It’s perfect timing with The Lion King, featuring Deja’s work, joining the Walt Disney Signature Collection. The film is available on Digital now and on Blu-ray™ Aug. 29th.
Deja animated some of the most iconic Disney Villians of all time.
He also supervised some of Disney’s most beloved characters.
The exhibit also includes artwork from Deja’s upcoming project, Mushka. The independent film features a young girl and her tiger in a story of love and sacrifice set in Russia.
You can visit Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja from now through October 9th. You can purchase The Walt Disney Signature Collection Blu-ray of The Lion King on August 29th.
