Re-booting ANIMATION BACKGROUNDS today, we have some terrific backgrounds from Disney's PETER PAN. 

The Lost Boys must be nearby! ;)

*****

You never saw today's first B/G like this in the movie. The shot included a pan. 
Here's a first view of the entire, digitally restored piece!


A double escape hatch for the Lost Boys!



This huge vertical pan is quite lovely. Note lower cel overlays - leaves and slab - 
at bottom, and the Mary Blair presence upper left!
Tinkerbell wanted to stay... and you know just how stubborn she can be!




TWO epic pan backgrounds - as the Lost Boys run to shoot Wendy out of the sky! (Naughty Tink!)




Sometimes I can't completely clear the backgrounds digitally.
If characters don't move to reveal a part of the background... 
then they stay! 
Hence the presence of Lost Boys on the left.
Note the gorgeous Mary Blair styling!

Thanks for this topic. I like animation. Whenever I get time I try to make short animated films.

nice ones. I'll keep them as reference to improve my own platformer backgrounds :)

Some of my favorite backgrounds of all the Disney movies. I also love Lady and the Tramp and Dalmatians. I really like those big leafy plants in the final image you posted.
