Roger Rabbit II: The Toon Platoon was a cancelled prequel to the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
The film is set during World War II and would follow Roger, who learns that he is adopted and sets out on a quest to find his birth mother, and makes a friend in Richard Davenport, a former pilot, and meets future lover Jessica. Later on, Jessica is kidnapped and forced to make broadcasts for the Nazi army, and Roger must find a way to rescue her.
Why It Was Cancelled
- Steven Spielberg objected to the film's portrayal of Nazis and refused to take part in the project.
- Disney lost the licenses to Warner Brothers and Hanna Barbera due to the formation of Time Warner at the time.
- Disney made more Roger Rabbit shorts that were shown on home media platforms such as VHS and DVD.
