/Film gives us an update of the upcoming Roger Rabbit sequel… Well, not actually.
They talk about a “newly discovered” screen test made for “Roger Rabbit 2” back in 1998. If you’re familiar with this blog, maybe you’ll remember we reviewed that screen test, SEVERAL MONTHS AGO:
I found that screen test back in May of this year, in Brendan Body’s blog. Someone decided to upload it to YouTube (since it was originally hosted on Vimeo) and then Cartoon Brew picked it up, claiming it was a new discovery. Let’s remember what we’re talking about fellas:
Although we don’t credit Cartoon Brew on that find (instead, we choose to credit Brendan Body since he was the person that found the RR2 test in Eric Guaglione’s website and shared it with everyone), we instead can credit them for bringing more news about that failed project, as some persons that were involved in it posted about their own experiences in the pre-production stages of this ill-fated prequel, and shared some facts about the making of that animated sequence.
I invite you to read about them in /Film or in Cartoon Brew, it’s a really interesting read and absolutely worth your time if you’re a hardcore Roger Rabbit fan like me =3
UPDATE: Eric Goldberg (Animation Director of this project) left his own comments on Cartoon Brew and explains a little about how this test was made and why the prequel project was canceled, besides costs. You gotta read this guy! =D
