This movie is truly a classic. Many think Little Mermaid was the beginning of Disney’s third Golden Age, but in reality, it all started with Roger. Wonderful article, sir.
One of the single greatest movies of all time and that ever will be.
Hit me all you want, but I think it’s time for a sequel.
When the first one was made, animation was kinda… dead. In the movies, in television. But since then, we’ve experienced a boom on both the big and small screen. We’ve seen 2D animation and disappear and re-appear on the movies, and we’ve seen intricate worlds being created on the television.
I’d only be game for a sequel if they also got deals with Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon to get their characters on the movie. If Roger Rabbit was a homage to the childhood of people who were adult in the 80’s, then Roger Rabbit should be a homage to the childhood of people who are adults now.
yhea because the orignal was made when their kids (8o’s)
One of my absolute favorite movies! I don’t think there needs to be a sequel, but I’d be excited to see more Roger presence at the parks again and some new shorts. I had them all on VHS and watched them so much a broke the tape.
I’m not as sympathetic, since:
– 6) It revived classic ‘toons with 80’s baby-boomers-
Unfortunately, Zemeckis’ slapstick style reminded them ONLY of hyperactive shrieking/bug-eyed MGM Tex Avery toons, and for almost the next fifteen years before the classic Looney Toons came back out on DVD (including the entire 90’s of Tiny Toons/Animaniacs), that was what every grownup thought all of 40’s cartoons looked like. The Bugs Bunny cameo reminded some fans of Chuck Jones, but even those put Bugs only in the context of anvils, pies, dynamite sticks, and “Ain’t I a stinker?”
(And Mickey didn’t fare all that well in the movie either.)
