Last Seen In: Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)
Fans of cartoons, detective stories, and genuinely inspired writing and filmmaking already know (and likely appreciate) Robert Zemeckis’ Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Now that animated films aimed at adult audiences have become commonplace, there’s no better time to see what has transpired in Toontown in the meantime (not to mention, an update on Roger and his buxom wife, Jessica).
It wouldn’t be difficult to craft a story with Roger once again begging for the aid of toon-hating private eye Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), with better animation, to boot. Unfortunately, Roger Rabbit 2‘s development has seriously stalled.
Perhaps the most compelling case for another Roger Rabbit movie (besides the quality of the first) is this: of all the films that blended animation with live-action, its sequel is the one we’d actually wait in line to see.
