Coming Soon - Park Ranger Jessica Rabbit Statue



Electric Tiki Design, best known for their cartoony statues and maquettes, were given the opportunity to create some of Disney's most entertaining characters. It was quite a surprise that Jessica Rabbit was to have not one, but two different statues. One of the team designers, Tracy M Lee, worked for Disney Animation on several characters - including Jessica - so finally we got to see a very accurate representation of her in statue form.

The first Jessica statue by Electric Tiki was from Rollercoaster Rabbit, and shows her wearing a concept outfit that was not in the movie. The statue was available in several different colors - mint green, light blue, pink, purple, black leather (just kidding about the last one).


Park Ranger Jessica Rabbit - from the short film Trail Mix-Up, will be coming out around March April May June 2011 and was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con in July 2010. You can check the Electric Tiki Facbook page for more photos and news.

There was supposed to be an exclusive version of Park Ranger Jessica released, but it does not appear this is happening anymore.

Bob Hoskins agrees to Roger Rabbit Sequel

It is being reported that Bob Hoskins, the actor who played Eddie Valiant in the original Who Framed Roger Rabbit film, will sign on to reprise his role for the Roger Rabbit Sequel.

He talked with The Daily Telegraph, saying:

“I don’t know how it’s going to work out. The format they want to do is the same as we did for A Christmas Carol. The thing is, it looks like a cartoon, so how do you put a cartoon in the middle of a cartoon? I can’t figure out how they are going to do it.”

What Bob Hoskins is referring to is the director, Robert Zemeckis (the original film director who will also direct the sequel) is set on using cartoons, but also computer generated humans - such as in his movies Beowulf, The Polar Express and A Christmas Carol. The point of the Roger Rabbit movie was to combine cartoons with real humans - so if they are combined with digitally created humans that may look cartoonish, it loses the base of what made the original film so unique. Even if the humans are created so well as to look convincingly real - they still are not real humans - so then why not just put real people in it to begin with?

Hoskins admitted early on when the rumors of the sequel started that he is too old to partake in it like he did back in 1988. One use for the digital humans makes it possible to bring back the older actors, such as Hoskins - now in his late 60's, and include him just as much as in the original. They can look the same as they did years before and would not need to do stunts, or any work other than supply the voice.

The sequel is still a long way off as Robert Zemeckis is said to be working on his next movie - a computer generated version of The Beatles Yellow Submarine, not set for release until 2012.

Jessica Rabbit Merchandise Review # 11 - Small Jessica's Keychain



Back in the day, between 1989 - 1992, Jessica Rabbit was lucky enough to have her very own store called Jessica's. It's a shame that it was not open very long - and many people had never been there, not to mention ever knew it existed. There were so many different things available and it was easy to let some of those things slip through the cracks if you thought the store was going to be open for a long time. One cool items that you can still find now and then are the Jessica's keychains. There were two kinds, one small lucite keychain and another larger glittered version.

Between 1988 and 2003, there was a very scarce assortment of Jessica Rabbit merchandise available. Soon after Jessica's popularity was realized in pin form, we began to see more items become available. In 2007, Disneyland Paris offered a surprising amount of new Jessica merchandise such as a clock, shirt, chalkboard, apron, button pins and also a very accurate statue. Some things showed up on-line but they were all pretty rare, and a few items in particular are still very hard to find.

Jessica Rabbit Merchandise Review # 8 - Jessica Bathing Suit Pin Set



Back in 2007, the Jessica pins were overflowing. Among them was a Jessica World Travel series, a Halloween Costume series, a Valentine set, and two framed sets. Possibly in an effort to keep costs down, a new kind of set was created called Card Sets. These were a set of pins on a large background card, but they were not framed. The framed sets did not seem to be doing well - and not surprising with releasing two LE 1000 Jessica framed sets so close to each other, both of them eventually went on sale for about 75% off the original price.
