Geeks of Doom's Exclusive Coverage of SDCC 2009

An interesting tidbit came out of Disney’s A Christmas Carol panel today at the San Diego Comic-Con. Director Robert Zemeckis was asked during the audience Q&A if he had any intention on ever making a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. The director try to play coy by saying several times that he “could neither confirm or deny” a sequel to his 1988 live-action/animated film, which starred Bob Hoskins as Eddie Valiant, a private eye investigating a case in the Toontown section of Hollywood where the animated “Toons” live. But something about the director’s response led the audience to believe there was more to it, perhaps there is something in the works, but he’s not at liberty to announce it yet.

Zemeckis did offer up what his plans would be for the original 2D animated characters if he were to do a sequel.

If that ever does happen… everyone doesn’t have to worry, the 2D animated characters from the original movie will remain 2D. They will not be dimensionalized, but that doesn’t exclude anything from ever being 3D… who knows? That’s just my feeling if anything were to happen down the road.

Zemeckis has been asked about a sequel many times over the years, and recently told AICN that Hoskins — who appears in A Christmas Carol as Mr. Fezziwig — would definitely love to return to the role of Eddie Valiant and that they “talk about it and it’s something we are thinking about.”

This sounds like there’s a good chance a Roger Rabbit sequel could happen.
