Now Available - Pulling A Rabbit Out Of A Hat: The Making Of Roger Rabbit Book

A new book recently released heavily details the making of Who Framed Roger Rabbit - starting with the original novel by Gary K. Wolf, to the impact that followed and continues all these years later. Pulling a Rabbit Out of a Hat: The Making of Roger Rabbit by Ross Anderson covers every aspect of the project that fans of the film, animation and Disney will greatly appreciate. While reading you'll start to realize it's a miracle the film was even made. It's a "Making Of" book that has more puzzle pieces than a detective story.

Packed with quotes, dates, places - and even referencing this very website - Ross Anderson has included everything a Roger Rabbit fan could ask for. It took more than a village to raise this Rabbit and now you can get to know the crew involved in the creation of the movie. Which directors were considered for the film? What Toontown gags didn't make it into the movie? How many Roger Rabbit short cartoons were originally planned!? Find out all this and more in The Making of Roger Rabbit: Pulling a Rabbit Out of a Hat. Buy your copy today!!

In Memory Of Richard Williams

I am deeply saddened to learn about the passing of animation legend Richard Williams. His understanding of movement and illusion is what made Who Framed Roger Rabbit possible. His works remain as some of the best examples of brilliant animation.
