This is an original hand painted production cel on original production background used in making Warner Bros. animated film "Batman: The Mask of Phantasm" 1993. Featured here is Phantasm. The lore and legend of BATMAN have been told and retold in comic books, on television, and in motion pictures. Now, from Warner Bros. Animation, and a creative team who grew up with the exploits of the Dark Knight in all media, comes BATMAN: The Mask of Phantasm. Premiering in theaters on Christmas day 1993, the richly-produced feature film possesses the same mystique, "Dark Deco" look, and bizarre villains that epitomized Warner Bros." successful films. To some, he is merely a legend. To others, he is a dedicated, driven avenger. And to criminals, he is their worst nightmare. He is ...BATMAN. A mysterious, ethereal character in a death mask (PHANTASM) is stalking specific gangsters in Gotham City. Because of Batmans' resemblance to him the Dark Knight is mistakenly accused of the murders. As Batman investigates, he crosses paths with his ex-fiancÃ©, Andre Beaumont, who has just arrived in town to clear up some old family business. The minute they lay eyes on each other Andrea realizes to her astonishment that Batman is really Bruce Wayne. And this is how the story begins... This original cel will come with a copy background.

Production cels are the one-of-a-kind original cels that were used in the creation of an animated film or television show. Each has been hand-painted by studio artists on a piece of celluloid acetate, and has been photographed over a background painting to create a frame of the finished production.
Production cels are highly sought after by collectors, with very rare pieces from the early days of animation fetching prices in the tens, and even the hundreds of thousands of dollars. See Why So Few Vintage Pieces Have Survived for more information on the rarity of early production cels.
Production cels from the 1980’s and 90’s are available at considerably lower expense, but The Move To Computerized Animation has severely curtailed the supply of new artwork in the market, and has put upward pressure on prices of what is still available.
Production cels from the same film, or even the same scene, can have significantly different values depending on their desirability to collectors.
