Zemeckis On Roger Rabbit Sequel
Exclusive: Characters won't be 3D!

23 July 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

Robert Zemeckis was at Comic-Con today to introduce footage from his next film A Christmas Carol, but he took time out to answer a quick question on a possible Who Framed Roger Rabbit sequel. 

Said the director, “I can neither confirm nor deny [that that's happening]. But I will tell you this: if that ever does happen, so everyone doesn’t have to worry, the 2D animated characters from the original movie will remain 2D. They will not be dimensionalised, but who knows? There might be other 3D stuff. That’ll be down the road.” 

Reading between the lines we take it to mean that the film itself could be in 3D but that the toons themselves would feature as 2D characters, a technique that could prove extremely effective onscreen. Will it ever happen? Who knows but we're holding out hope. More from Comic-Con as we get it.

should be a prequal
Name it 'Valiant & Valiant' and have it set towards the run up of Teddy's death. That would be friggin' awesome! But who to play Eddie? Bob's a bit too old to play his younger self. More

and another thing...
WHY does Zemekis keep making these animation movies??? Is he just trying to be the number 1 guy for making films no one (well, OK me) wants to see? What the hell was that stupid Beowulf all about? Ray Winstone as a musclebound viking or whatever?! Then Polar Express - dead eyed Tom Hanks monster on a train. It's not good, it's not worth the ticket price. I remember when this man made really well crafted live action blockbusters like BTTF (and no, I do not want a sequel to it) which continue More

This must be top on the list of unnecessary sequels. Leave it alone. The original is a bona fide, absolute classic and no matter how good the sequel may be, it won't add to the original in any way. More
