The "Animation and Disneyana Auction," held at Profiles in History in Los Angeles, will offer 600 lots of animation art and Disney-related items.

The list includes animation frames from memorable films such as Cinderella and the holiday classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas. A prop pistol from the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Walt Disney World will also go under the hammer.

Disney's last will and testament is expected to fetch between $40,000 and $60,000, said Brian Chanes, head of acquisitions at Profiles in History.

Disney co-founded an animation studio in 1923, which eventually grew into a feature film production studio with films such as Snow White and the Seven DwarfsBambi and Cinderella. He died in 1966 aged 65.
