Pin Release: Disney Racers Mystery Set

There is a new Roger Rabbit pin released in all Disney Parks. The Disney Racers Mystery Set was released this month and consists of 16 pins in total. You buy one pack and each will come with 5 randomly selected pins. The set appears to be an Open Edition and sells for $27.99 per pack.

The pin design is from a real Roger Rabbit Disney Racers toy that was released some time in the early 2000's. There were several characters to be changed over into their own unique race car and there are new ones being made for Star Wars characters. With the larger selection of characters there may be a second series of this pin set in the future.

Disney Corporate Dosen't Like Jessica Rabbit

There is some very dismaying news coming out of The Telegraph in regards to the future of Roger Rabbit as a whole.

A few other websites (such as ComicBook.com) have picked up on quotes from the Who Framed Roger Rabbit director himself, Robert Zemeckis. He has revealed what he believes is the current feeling at Disney Corporate regarding Roger and Jessica Rabbit in addition to any other related projects:

“the current corporate Disney culture has no interest in Roger, and they certainly don’t like Jessica at all.”

This is extraordinarily sad, and also very obvious as Jessica Rabbit's pins have vanished and there has been so little news or merchandise to report on as the years have passed. Zemeckis did share what the idea would have been for Roger Rabbit 2 - moving out of 1940's film noir into a more 50's style movie and acting as a continuation rather than a sequel.

This original artwork, titled Let Me Count the Ways, features both Roger and Jessica Rabbit and it has been quite a long time since we have seen any artwork, or merchandise in general, of the toon couple.

Roger is on the left, kneeling and swooning over Jessica. She is on the right sending a kiss to him. There is a reel of unraveled film between them.
