Despite Bob Hoskins’ Retirement, the ‘Roger Rabbit’ Sequel is Still Possible | /Film
There have been a lot of new cartoon characters since 1980.
can't see this movie ever happening.
Another sequel that's taken WAYYYYY too long to get going, frankly.
If it takes more than 15 years, just cut the cord, let things lie for about a year or two while you move on to other projects, and just remake the damn thing since you know that's what you REALLY want to do, Hollywood.
This will probably never happen - far too many people have to come together to make a sequel a possibility. Hell, even if it does happen, it will be nothing like the first one. I can't see WB teaming up with Disney again.
No, this is not Duke Nukem Forever.
And the thread title is misleading. There is a DISTINCT difference between "planned" and "possible",of which the latter is in play and it means it COULD happen, but nothing is being done on it to have it see a release date. Not like Roger Rabbit even needs a sequel, they've already begun phasing him out at Disney parks and he's honestly not one of the more recognizable Disney characters (the movie is remembered a bit more simply because it's rather dark for a movie about bright and happy cartoon characters)

Who Framed is a classic, i love that movie!!!
Roger Rabbit 2 Still Unlikely Says Robert Zemeckis
It doesn't need a sequel.
I think a clever idea for a sequel could be the new age of CG animation putting all the 2-D characters outta business.
I like that a lot, actually.

That's....actually not bad to be honest.
But it'd take a great writer to make that work.
Without Bob Hoskins? Take a hike. It's like trying to make an OG Ghostbusters movie now that Harold is gone.
... very good idea, actually.
Absolutely, unequivocally perfect!
I agree with this...
Or at least I did before this guy laid this excellent premise on me.
That could work.
And Bob Hoskins may be gone, but I've pictured a sequel having a main character be the son of his character(possibly estranged), and him then being sucked into the crazy world of Toons.
Just imagine a recreation of this scene featuring the characters from the major animation hits of the past decade. Toy Story, Shrek, Despicable Me, Frozen, Ice Age etc.
Wish I had Mr. Zemeckis on speed dial...
The beauty of WFRR is you had Warner and Disney characters together onscreen for the only time ever. Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse are iconic. There's no rival studios with competing singular iconic characters anymore.
There's DreamWorks, Pixar, Disney (still), and Illumination. DreamWorks has How To Train Your Dragon, Shrek, and Kung Fu Panda. Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and The Incredibles all have memorable characters. Disney is still doing the princess thing (arguably better than ever) and movies like Zootopia and Big Hero 6. Even though the Minions are oversaturated, they are basically the mascot of that animation company now. The problem isn't that, it's just that it's not as interesting to see those characters interact with ones from other companies. It's the whole Marvel vs DC thing. Some characters are so similar that you want to see them interact such as the Donald and Daffy scene.
