Each flipbook features a scene from an animated Disney feature in its original line-drawn form, having been selected from among a wide range of films for great movement and classic characters. In addition to the filpbooks, the box contains a booklet detailing the incredible talents that the animators contributed to The Walt Disney Animation Studios, for which they have all been named Disney Legends.
