During the 1990s and surrounding years, Disney experienced what can only be described as a true animation renaissance. This era of exceptional films was defined by what were at the time hits and have become classics in the decades that have followed. This includes 1989's fun The Little Mermaid, 1991's Academy Award-nominated Beauty and the Beast, 1992's unforgettable Aladdin, 1994's epic masterpiece The Lion King, 1995's hauntingly beautiful Pocahantas, 1996's awe-inspiring The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and more. Today, Heritage Auctions pairs two of these films to offer many memorable items from the incredible era.
