An update on the "Save Roger Rabbit" petition
Here's an update on the "Save Roger Rabbit" petition that I started this past June:
As of today (10/11/2002), the current number of signatures is 903.
The address for this petition is:
P-P-P-P-P-P-Please keep signing it and tell others about it.
Remember: you have until December 31st to sign this petition. The petition will then be forwarded to Michael Eisner and Steven Spielberg.
Hopefully, 2003 will be a better year for Roger Rabbit.
For one thing, a 2-disc Vista series special edition "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" DVD set is getting released...and it seems that they're putting a lot of time, effort and heart into it. Can't wait to buy it. Let's hope that this new collaboration will FINALLY spell the end of the dreaded Disney/Amblin feud.
Ironically, 2003 marks the 15th anniversary of the Rabbit and his movie.
Maybe they'll have the Roger Rabbit walk-around character come out for meet-and-greets at Walt Disney World and Disneyland again (if only for a limited time/if only for the 15th anniversary). It would also be a good way to promote the DVD.
Maybe Roger will at least make a cameo appearance on the "House of Mouse" TV series next year.
Also, Roger's image and likeness (including a giant statue of him) is being used in the 1980s section of Walt Disney World's still-under-construction "Pop Century Resort" hotel, which may finally open next year.
Maybe they'll make some new merchandise for the occasion. (It's nice that the Roger characters are still appearing on merchandise and artwork from time to time.)
I also hope that for the DVD they'll animate the Roger cartoon shorts that DIDN'T get made, including "Hare in My Soup".
Well that would be very interesting to see and stuff.
