    wdwguide -

    Was there a reason to make a RR Sequel? I'm looking forward to a good DVD release of this, but what makes you say:

    Dosen't say killed for good but with so many years between the first movie and now. I would say its dead too.

    They made a sequel to Cinderella (shudder...) and Lady & the Tramp so the number of years between sequels hardly seems to be that big a worry by itself IMO. I would say that politics and budget are the biggest RR killers. :(

    ..true look at the Star Wars movies. It's just that I doubt that RR had/has the staying power to wait years between movies. They defiantly missed the window of opportunity on that one. I'm sure there are many reasons why a sequal will never be made to that movie.

    I guess I just never thought a sequel or a prequel *should* have been made. Sometimes a movie is better standing on its own. I mean, can you imagine a sequel to Casablanca?

    Roger Rabbit = the correct way do to live action/animation (and one of the best films of the 80s).

    Scooby-Doo = an example of how not to do live action/animation (and one of the worst films of '02).

    I think Jim Hill did a series about this. It seems that Disney and Steven Spielberg are feuding about the character, or merchandising or some such thing!! I don't recall the particulars, but that's why there was no sequel many years ago. And I think things have gotten worse. I believe it had to do with the short feature and what film it was going to promote. Ei$ner strong-armed and Spielberg told him to... well you can imagine what he told him!!

    Does anyone have the articles or a link to them? I did a quick search on his recent site and couldn't find anything. Can anyone help?
