Late last year, Disney released CGI animation "Wreck-It Ralph," and thanks to its wide selection of cameos from videogame legends, barely a review passed without comparison to another Disney film from the past -- 1988's "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," which included dozens of brief appearances from classic cartoon characters. Sadly, for all of the charms of "Wreck-It Ralph," the comparison didn't do it many favors. On Blu-Ray this week, ahead of its 25th anniversary later in the year, Robert Zemeckis' 'Roger Rabbit' is a loving, beautifully crafted and inventive picture that's barely aged a day since its release.

While talking with MTV during one of the seemingly endless press appearances for the new "Back to the Future" Blu-ray set (which is totally worth picking up, by the way), Robert Zemeckis gave a brief update on the status of the long-in-development "Roger Rabbit" sequel. When asked if the script was still being penned by the original writers (Peter S. Seaman and Jeffrey Price), Zemeckis confirmed, and said, "They're slow." When pressed for details if he had actually read anything, Zemeckis stated that he had and, "It's great... I think it's gonna be great."
