An American Tail
Drew worked directly with Steven Spielberg on this project. It
was Spielberg's first animated film project and, as he does with all
work, he wanted the poster to be special. Rather than the typical
"airbrush" rendition like other animated films, he went with Drew to
a more "heart felt" experience with this poster.
Drew recalls to mind that the film featured the Statue of Liberty in the story. Do you recall, however, that at the time of the films release the actual Statue had just been renovated and a new torch of gold had been put in place of the original one which had lit up. Steven was much involved with the event and the poster for the film recalls when the Statue was new as well as it's anniversary renovation. The Statue of Liberty National Monument officially celebrated her 100th birthday on October 28, 1986.
