Comic-Con 09: Zemeckis talks Roger Rabbit 2

"I can neither confirm nor deny if it's happening"

You knew it was going to happen: Robert Zemeckis faced 6,000 Hall H attendees and someone asked the Roger Rabbit question.

When the panel opened up to questions, among the earliest was from a fan who wanted to know whether Zemeckis would ever make a sequel to his live-action 'toon blend.

He was as cagey as ever - "I can neither confirm nor deny whether something like that is happening," he said at first, but then spilled a telling detail.

Yes, though he's famously pushing the 3D angle these days, Zemeckis is very clear about how he'd theoretically tackle such a pic.

I will tell you this - if that ever does happen, the 2D animated characters will remain 2D. They will not be dimensionalized, but that doesn't mean other parts won't be in 3D."

Nice to see he's keeping things traditional, but we're still not sure the sequel ever will - or should - happen...

What do you think? Will we ever see Roger 2?

      Of course it should. Imagine a film about how Roger and the other 2D stars cope with the influx of newer 3D characters. Something like a large scale Toy Story. It could explore themes of obsolesence, mass unemployment, ageism and the effects new technology have on industries. Seriously, don't write the idea off just because it's a sequel. Done well it could be incredible.

      Yes a sequel should happen because the first on was fantastic if does happen I think the characters should stay 2D but I dont think a sequel will be made lone. Shame

      Roger Rabbit should be left as it is. No sequels, nothing. Inregarldless of wheterh they will put some into 3D or not. In my opinion it should be left alone, since classics done well or not, usualy are ruined. and take away the magic of the first.
