Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja at the Walt Disney Family Museum

We visited as a guest of the venue

One of my favorite things to do when I’m in the San Francisco area is to visit the Walt Disney Family Museum. When I went to visit Pixar Animation Studios to learn about the upcoming film COCO, I made a stop at the museum before flying home. One exhibit at the museum that captivated me was Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja.

Before exploring the exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum, I didn’t know a lot about Andreas Deja. I quickly learned that he is one of the most highly acclaimed animators of all-time and is known for his work on bringing Scar in The Lion King to life.

While I was looking around the exhibit and admiring his work, there were drawings of lions that didn’t look familiar to me. I knew that the drawings weren’t from The Lion King, so I asked one of the volunteers, and he advised me that they are drawings for an upcoming film called “Mushka.” The drawings got me excited about seeing his upcoming independent film.

With The Lion King recently being released on Blu-ray and digital download, I spent quite a lot of time admiring this drawings and model of Scar. Scar is one of the biggest Disney Villians of all-time, and it had to take an incredibly talented artist to make him look so terrifying. Andreas Deja did an incredible job!

Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja will only be at The Walt Disney Museum until October 9th. Don’t miss having a rare opportunity to see the art of Andreas Deja including many of his personal pieces. One fun fact about the exhibit is that if you look closely on the mural next to the doors leading into the exhibit, you can see where Andreas Deja signed his name on the wall.

Along with visiting this exhibit, make sure and get your copy of The Lion King or download it to your digital library using Disney Movies Anywhere.

The Walt Disney Family Museum is located at 104 Montgomery St, San Francisco, CA 94129. The museum is open 10am–6pm daily, except Tuesdays, January 1st, Thanksgiving Day, and December 25th. Admission is $25 for adults, $15 for children (6-17) and free for children 5 and under. Deja View: The Art of Andreas Deja is included with the price of admission.
