A little clear-up about WFRR getting the 3D treatment

Some days ago, I published that NME was reporting “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” is going to be re-released on November 2013 as a 3D feature.

Sure they don’t have any back-up to their claims, but I know those NME guys and they take things seriously; in fact they own one of the most renowned music and media magazines among alternative audiences, and they usually don’t post false claims (whey they do, they promptly apologize).

Jessica’s owner Jarrod claims it is too soon to cheer up and advise us to take these news with a grain of salt (in fact, I got an e-mail for him asking about the core source of this tidbit of info) and maybe he’s right, since there it comes this sudden revelation out of nowhere. Even I had my own doubts when the trailer of the upcoming Blu-ray release of WFRR was premiered on a YouTube fan channel instead of an official Disney website, until I was proved wrong by the guys at Open Vault Disney.

You know me people. I’ve passed a lot of supposed Roger Rabbit news that are just rehashes of the old news we already know, while another ones are just plain dumb, silly and without any credible backup. My intention isn’t giving you false hopes or try to get more hits telling lies, which only will hurt the reputation I and Alex have gained thru all those years. In fact, after all those years of false starts and empty promises, I still fear we won’t gonna get a prequel, a sequel or even an affordable piece of memorabilia. Heck, I’m even sick of just staring at those Jessica Rabbit statues which cost an arm and a leg to get! Where’s Roger? Oh, yeah, I forgot: he’s not sexy or “hot”. He’s just a dumb old bunny that a lot of people consider obnoxious.

Okay, that was enough ranting for a while. My point is: let’s wait until these news get confirmed. If they are false, I’ll promptly apologize to all of you, expecting some of my credibility will be gone to the trash bin. But let’s hope they are true =)

2D art of 3D Roger found.

Remember the video with the CGI Roger? Cause then you might get a case of Deja vu from this image:

This drawing was found at the Living Lines blog I linked to in a recent post, but the date and the name of the artist indicates it was not made for the original film but the failed sequel attempt.
Rewatch the video and you can see the poses Roger makes are the same as in the drawing above.

“Who Framed Roger Rabbit” goes 3D in 2013

Roger Rabbit 3D

More good news coming, fellas! NME Magazine catches on the sequel buzz, but also tell us that the original movie, the one which started it all, the one and only “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” is getting a 3D re-release in November 2013 (roughly more than a year ahead) to mark the celebrations of the movie’s 25th. Anniversary.

Aren’t you excited to see the funny bunny and his friends in 3D? Because sure I am! =D

Finally! Some news about “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” sequel


Finally some sequel of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” could happen, says Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman, who interviewed Robert Zemeckis about his upcoming live-action movie “Flight”.

Basically the article says Zemeckis has submitted a script to Disney executives, which are in a kind of settle-down moment after Alan Horn got the big chair at the Mouse House. He also says he’s feeling sad about Bob Hoskins’ retirement, but he still believes the sequel project it’s on the go despite the loss of “Eddie Valiant”.

Are you as optimistic as Robert Zemeckis? Do you think a sequel without Bob Hoskins could work? Would they resurrect Rick Flint, the detective from Roger Rabbit’s comic magazines? Are we there yet, actually?

P-p-p-p-please share your opinions, I’ll be eager to discuss them! =D

Another cute Roger Rabbit custom doll

Roger Custom Doll

Jarrod from ImNotBad.com sent me several weeks ago this pic featuring a cute, one-of-a-kind Roger Rabbit doll sewn by a very talented person who used to work for Disney some time ago. She won’t be sewing another one, but you can get some inspiration from this cute doll and sew/cobble/commission your own.

It would be awesome if she decides to sew Jessica, Baby Herman or Benny the Car, but even if she doesn’t this incredible Roger doll is enough proof of her abilities and love for Roger =3

Thanks for the awesome find, Jarrod! =)
