Robert Zemeckis is back with “Animated American”… Could this be actually RR2?


Finally, after several weeks of hiatus found some interesting info that might be of your interest!

Slashfilm - Rob Edwards Writing Robert Zemeckis Project ‘Animated American’

Seems that Robert Zemeckis wasn’t already done with Disney, since he’s now in charge of a project named “Animated American”, which is apparently a mix of live-action and animation like “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”.

The script, which is written by “The Princess and the Frog” screenwriter Rob Edwards features an animated baby being raised by a human family until he turns 18 and decides to say farewell to his foster family, in his search for his real animated family. Doesn’t that sounds awfully familiar? Since the discarded sequel “Roger Rabbit II: Toon Squad” features the very same original premise but spiced with jews, some nazi fellas and some WWII scenery (thanks goodness it never came to fruition, since I’d hate knowing about Roger’s actual father… Yes, THAT despicable rabbit).

If you’re following me, then you’ve got enough reasons to think “Animated American” is just a working title for “Roger Rabbit 2”… And let’s hope Disney and Zemeckis are actually working on this! =3
