Who Framed Roger Rabbit Movie
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is a 1988 American live-action animated comedy mystery film directed by Robert Zemeckis and produced by Frank Marshall and Robert Watts, and largely based on Gary K. Wolf’s 1981 novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? by Jeffrey Price and Peter S. Seaman. Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Charles Fleischer, Stubby Kaye, and Joanna Cassidy star in the picture. The film follows Eddie Valiant, a private investigator who must exonerate Roger Rabbit, a toon who has been framed for the murder of the Acme Corporation’s owner, in a 1947 version of Hollywood where cartoon characters often referred to as toons and people co-exist.
In 1981, Walt Disney Pictures bought the film rights to the story. Before Disney bought in executive producer Steven Spielberg and his production business, Amblin Entertainment, Price and Seaman created two draughts of the script. The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis, while the animation scenes were overseen by Canadian animator Richard Williams. To accommodate Williams and his team of animators, production was shifted from Los Angeles to Elstree Studios in England. During filming, the production budget quickly grew, and the shooting schedule grew longer than anticipated.

Who Killed Roger Rabbit?
Roger Rabbit is not an animated cartoon character, but rather a comic strip figure who is photographed for the newspaper rather than drawn. This has an effect on the way he speaks: instead of simply talking like in the movie, he creates actual “speech balloons” with written words that vanish after he’s finished “talking.” When the narrative starts, Roger employs private investigator Eddie Valiant to figure out why his bosses, Rocco and Dominic DeGreasy, refused to give him his own comic strip despite promising to do so.
Valiant looks into it, but later learns that Roger was killed (or “censored”) in his own house. Roger, on the other hand, built a doppelganger to conduct some errands before his death, and Valiant is accompanied by that version of Roger (who has all of the original’s memories). Things get even thornier when Roger is accused of murdering Rocco DeGreasy, despite his doppelganger’s denials.
Valiant runs into Roger’s widow Jessica Rabbit and co-star Baby Herman as he continues his investigation. He also discovers that Roger owned a magical kettle containing a Genie who miraculously granted Roger’s wishes of becoming a successful comic strip star and marrying Jessica Rabbit (giving a more cynical reason for how the bunny and the bombshell got together). When Roger activates the Genie for the third time, the Genie, who has had enough of granting wishes, shoots Roger.
However, Valiant discloses in a final twist that he knows the original Roger murdered Rocco in vengeance for Rocco stealing Jessica from the cartoon rabbit. Roger Rabbit’s doppelganger was supposed to be his alibi, allowing him to appear in two places at the same time.
Character Of Roger Rabbit
Roger Rabbit is a cartoon rabbit who is anthropomorphic. The figure originally featured in Gary K. Wolf’s novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit?, published in 1981. Roger is a second banana in the popular comic strip “Baby Herman” in the book.

When Roger is found killed in his house, Valiant enlists the help of Roger’s doppelganger to track down the murderer.
