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.

The scheduled release date for the statue is July of 2016. It should be roughly 8 inches in height and will sell for $75. The pose is one that is often used for Jessica. It is similar to her WDCC and Jim Shore statues, reliving the iconic first moment we see Jessica walk through the parted curtain at the Ink and Paint Club. Britto's style is covering the form of Jessica, not only on her dress and hair, but her skin too. Her leg has a light striped pattern, while her dress and hair have stripes, dots and signature patterns and colors.
