Darned stupid internet...the video won't play outside the US.

Intriguing indeed...my guess is that CG will play a big part, like in a major character role. I can't see Roger and the gang being done with performance capture, but perhaps they'll be toon shaded models. However, a new villain, or just the capabilities of moving things around "on set" (to be added in later) would free up production time. Even if all the animation was still hand drawn, the amount of props the characters could pick up would be much easier to pull off (as long as you weren't a CG roto artist!)...

Seems to make sense, though. Having broken all the rules in live-action, and found his toys, Bob Z wants to try again and see if he can break them all over again with "animation". And being back at Disney's can't have helped but sparked some people's minds..."oh yeah, what did he do here again? Roger Rabbit? Ahhhh..."

Already I have shivers, but they're not all good ones. Seems all the old movies making a comeback have turned out to be pretty bad. And while this would no doubt be state of the art technologically, those very same tools could rip away what made the first so special. It's a one off that can't be repeated, though I know like a bad car crash we'll all want to see them try.

FWIW, Ben .. the video clip is very short (41 seconds), and literally everything that is said by both Zemeckis and the Mtv-guy is transcribed within the article.

It's certainly not a 'formal' interview situation, though. Basically, Zemeckis is strolling the media line at a 'red-carpet' event of some sort, and seems to make the Roger Rabbit comment almost off-handedly (and then appears to immediately regret having done so, based on the Mtv-guy's obviously 'over-excited' reaction at encountering such 'exclusive' info). :roll:

I take it in the same sense as Johnny Depp saying he'd "like to do" a Pirates 4, and fans immediately interpreting this as script-completed and studio-greenlit--
Yeah, and I'd "like to" take a six month cruise, but I don't think anyone's going to buy me a first-class cabin. :?

Thanks Droo. You'd think the MTV guy would be smarter than to start drooling!


Eric...I'd buy you a first class cabin, but I won't say where you're going...!

I need to tell my brother and a few of my friends about this, it might sound promising.

I haven't seen the first one, yet. I have the Vista series DVD, but haven't had time to enjoy it yet.

Arf, arf...nice try, but AWN are obviously embedding the MTV code for their own site! After the commercial played, and I waited in hope, I got the same "MTV content can't be played outside the US for copyright reasons".

But thanks for trying...though I get the gist. :)
