Disney Redoing The Lion King in 3-D, Roger Rabbit Gets a Sequel
06.23.10 by REELZ
Empire Magazine quizzed Disney producer/director Don Hahn and learned about some of his current hot projects. First of all, it sounds as though we'll be seeing a Who Framed Roger Rabbit sequel soon, and second, Simba will be getting the 3-D treatment.
I'm actually trying to work out a 3D conversion of The Lion King. I'll be doing that when I go back to the States in a couple of weeks. It's going to be spectacular — we will do a good job for ya! The technology is tremendous. We did A Nightmare Before Christmas a few years ago and Tim (Burton) thought it was better than the original because it allows you to walk onto the set.
Hahn dropped hints that original director Robert Zemeckis may indeed direct the Roger Rabbit sequel.
Yeah, 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.
All signs say that this will be fast-tracked, so stay tuned.
