Who Framed Roger Rabbit Sequel Confirmed by Director Bob Zemeckis

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Sequel Confirmed

If it's bad, it'll just be drawn that way: '80s animated/live action classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is getting a sequel, 21 years after its release.

The film's director, Bob Zemeckis, has confirmed that a Roger Rabbit sequel is moving forward, and the original screenwriters are working on a script. Zemeckis is looking forward to using digital tools to update this new installment, which makes me wonder just how different this movie will look from the 1988 original. There are also no details yet on the plot or which characters will be returning — though I assume that Roger and Jessica Rabbit will be back, not having aged a cartoon day.

I'm very curious about this project, considering that the original director and writer are on board, but I wonder if the same humor will hold up; it could either be a total disaster, or a modernized take on the movie. What do you think of this news?

Hmmmm why can't they just release a 'special anniversary' dvd or something? I'm worried the sequel will drown out and ruin the original. At least the original writers are on board.But what about Disney & Warner Bros? Are they coming back together again for the movie? Weren't there a lot of problems between them in the first movie? Like Disney demanding that their characters get equal screen time as Warner Bro. characters...

I loved the movie for a few years after 1st. seeing it... But when I rented it a few weeks back, I was left with a blah feeling. Why make a sequel so many years after the original tends to be forgotten? Wouldn't it have been better to do it within 5 years - 8 years at most! But too much time has passed for it to be interesting... Then again, maybe there will be a great script to make it worthwhile.-Why, oh, why! can't Hollywood can't come up with better *original* ideas?
