Coming Soon - Jessica Rabbit Britto Statue

In 2013 neo-pop artist Romero Britto added Jessica Rabbit a to his catalog of Disney characters recreated in his bright, energetic style. Known for his use of bold colors, graffiti patterns and elements of cubism, Jessica joined the list of Disney characters recreated by Britto, such as the Little Mermaid, Tinker Bell and Mickey Mouse. First, Jessica was released as a bust. She featured a glittered glove and was attached to a sleek black base. A new Jessica Rabbit will be released in 2016 and will be a full statue of the Toontown diva from head to toe.

Jessica Rabbit Pressed Penny

While there is not much left of the Roger Rabbit themed area in Disney's Hollywood Studios (and it might be completely gone during construction of the new Star Wars Land) a Pressed Penny Souvenir machine was there with Jessica Rabbit as one of the selections. Along with the new 2016 Disney Logo and Jack-Jack from The Incredibles, Jessica can be selected when you put a penny into the machine and have it pressed with the likeness of your choice. Several of these machines can be found around the park with different character selections. It costs .50¢ and you need to supply the penny as well.

This year was the slowest in Jessica Rabbit news in a very long time. Not since the mid 1990's was there so little of Jessica to be seen. The pin selections were slim, and the merchandise even slimmer. To make up for the empty space had a Jessica Rabbit Pin of the Day post, revisiting many of the past Jessica Rabbit pins released over the years. With over 600 released to date, there were certainly plenty to choose from. The pins were often themed to the month and can be seen HERE. It was a daunting task searching through my files of pins, art and scans, so in September it was changed over to Pin of the Week.

There was some new artwork that had appeared on the Disney Dream cruise ship which was created by famed Disney Illustrator Don "Ducky" Williams. It features Jessica and Roger dressed in United States Navy uniforms and the cruise line logo in the center.
