J.J Abrams & Steven Spielberg Almost Made ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ Sequel | Film News

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

 

It’s one of the 80’s most beloved films, but iconic directors Steven Spielberg and J.J Abrams have revealed they actually considered making a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit. According to Abrams, him and Speilberg – who was a producer on the original movie, met back in 1989 to discuss writing the hypothetical sequel.

 

Released in 1988, the live action/animated classic originated from Gary K. Wolf‘s 1981 novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit?; which depicted a world where cartoon characters directly interacted with humans and animals. It was a global success, earning $329.8 million in the box office.

 

Speaking on a Nerdist podcast, Abrams explained that he was unaware what the meeting was about beforehand and that he even owns some storyboards from the alleged sequel: “Years later, I got to meet Steven. I went into a meeting… actually, it was for a Roger Rabbit sequel. It was a whole thing. I actually have some storyboards for a Roger Rabbit short”.

 

He continued, revealing that the idea never really amounted to anything serious and therefore was scrapped: “Honestly, we never really got to that phase [where things got serious]. We were writing an outline, but it honestly went away before it was anything”.
