About the Author
Christopher Finch, as a young child, believed that he was "the" Christopher Robin of the wonderful stories his mother read to him at bedtime. It is only fitting that Finch adds this book to the list of more than twenty titles he has authored, including "The Art of Walt Disney" and "The Art of the Lion King." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
