Synopsis
The Creative talents of Steven Spielberg (E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Robert Zemeckis (Forest Gump, Back to the Future) join forces with Touchstone Pictures to bring you Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the international mega-hit which has dazzled audiences worldwide with its extraordinary blend of live-action and animation.

Recipient of four Academy Awards® and critically acclaimed around the globe, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is the tale of a man, a woman and a rabbit in a triangle of trouble. It's an astonishing mix of comedy, non-stop action, adventure and romance... in a crazy 1947 Hollywood world where absolutely anything can happen!

Based on Gary K. Wolf's 1981 book Who Censored Roger Rabbit?, executive producer Steven Spielberg knew from the start that the succes of the film would ultimately depend on the seamless integration of the live-action and animated elements. The cartoon characters must constantly interact with their real world counterparts and surroundings.

Veteran animator Richard Williams agreed, insisting that the film be shot as though it were fully live-action - complete with roving camerawork, tracking shots, zooms and all the other tricks of traditional cinematography. He would the ensure that his London-based team of animators match the studio photography so precisely that the various disparate elements would eventually blend together to form one unified image. Lucasfilm's famous Industrial Light and Magic special effects division the added innovative shading and lighting techniques to give the characters more depth and a even greater illusion of reality.

Filming commenced on December 1st 1986 and by the time the movie was released on June 24th 1988 it had cost the not inconsiderable sum of $50m. However the onscreen results of the crew's tireless work are nothing short of miraculous, and Williams went on to recieve a Special Achievement Academy Award® in 1988 for his ground-breaking work.

As a special bonus, included on a separate CAV-mode collector's disc, superstar Roger Rabbit bursts back onto the screen in It's Roger Rabbit!, a hysterical collection of three of his most outrageous short cartoon capers: Tummy Trouble (1989), Roller Coaster Rabbit (1990) and Trail Mix-up (1993).
