Celebrating “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” 25th anniversary


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present a new digital restoration of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” in celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary on Thursday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

Deadline reports Who Framed Roger Rabbit has been completely digitally restored for a 25th anniversary celebration to be presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

“‘Roger Rabbit’ brought together the greatest animators, the most skilled technicians, and the finest talent of the day,” said Zemeckis. “It’s good to have this chance to show our work to both those who remember the film as well as to a new audience.”

This digital restoration is provided courtesy of the Walt Disney Studios. The Disney restoration team used the original 35mm picture, VistaVision optical work and original sound elements to create this pristine digital version.

A post-screening on-stage discussion will be hosted by Academy Award nominee Rich Moore (Wreck-it Ralph). The panel will include Zemeckis, screenwriter Peter S. Seaman, actress Joanna Cassidy, voice actor Charles Fleischer, supervising animator Andreas Deja, and associate producers Don Hahn and Steve Starkey.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit won the Oscars for Film Editing, Sound Effects Editing, and Visual Effects, and was nominated for Art Direction, Cinematography and Sound. It also won the Special Achievement Award for Richard William’s animation direction.
