Animation legend Don Hahn recently sat down with Empire Magazine and gave them a couple of scoops, including the fact that he’s going to soon begin overseeing a 3D conversion of The Lion King (a movie I have never seen all the way through in one sitting. Maybe this will be my chance). But what could be most interesting to older film fans is his cryptic hint about Roger Rabbit 2:
“I couldn’t possibly comment. I deny completely, but yeah… if you’re a fan, pretty soon you’re going to be very, very, very happy.”
Trying to parse that statement is tough. It seems like he’s saying Roger Rabbit 2 isn’t happening, but then he says fans will be extremely happy about an upcoming development. What could that be? A TV series? A new series of shorts? A Jessica Rabbit branded Fleshlight?
Hahn’s keeping quiet, but it seems like we should be hearing more soon. Speculate away in the comments.
