Robert Zemeckis Sets Up The 3D Roger Rabbit Sequel That’s Just Waiting For Disney’s Green Light

I’ve never met a Robert Zemeckis film I don’t like, and many of them I love. I was prompted to recently revisit Who Framed Roger Rabbit by a friend who said the shine had gone off of it for him, at least a little.

I didn’t agree. I still loved it. It’s flawed, sure, but that’s love for you. And I’d certainly be more than happy for Zemeckis to get his long-planned sequel underway.

He’s recounted some details of what this sequel would entail in a new MTV interview:

It would be done just like the first one. It would look the same way, but we would present it in 3-D in its release. I would do all of the animation hand-drawn; 2-D, but using 3-D tools. It wouldn’t be like Pixar 3-D. It wouldn’t look like that…  this would again be another period movie.

The script is in with Disney at the moment, with Zemeckis saying:

I’m happy with the script. It’s very good. It’s written by the original writers, and it’s good. [But Disney] is still thinking about it.

Pull your finger out, Mickey, and while you’re at it, re-release the original in 3D. Zemeckis says that tests have been done, and they’re good:

The only one [of my film’s I’d convert to 3D is] Roger Rabbit, because you could really pull the animation out as a separate element. It would be very spectacular 3-D. As far as converting, the Back to the Future films… I don’t see the point in that. But they did a test on Roger back in 2006, somewhere around then, and it looks really great.

And a re-release would prove Roger’s box-office pull, I’m sure.

In the meantime, plans are afoot for a Blu-ray release of the film in 2013 – I previously posted the trailer. Hopefully that will be a big seller too.

Zemeckis’ Flight is on release in the US now and is really rather good. The UK will get to see it in February.
