(NEXSTAR) – Disneyland is giving Jessica Rabbit a new job.
The Anaheim theme park is updating one of its rides, this time with changes to Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin, an attraction based on the 1988 movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.” The changes will particularly concern Jessica Rabbit’s character, who will take on the role of private detective in an updated story, according to a fake newspaper article that will appear in the driving queue.
The character has previously appeared in two different scenes during the journey, the first depicting being placed in the trunk of a car by an evil member of the Toon Patrol Weasels in the movie.
Jessica Rabbit’s last guests at Disneyland already removed From this first scene, in the trunk of the car, two barrels of cartoons from the movie were replaced by “dipping”, which dissolves.
Debuting at Disneyland in 1994, Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Flip is currently described on Disneyland’s website as “a race through Toontown in search of Jessica Rabbit.”
The description’s only other mention of Jessica Rabbit is, “Charm revisits the story of Roger Rabbit as he tries to save his beloved wife, Jessica Rabbit, from the evil henchman known as the Weasels.”
But part of Jessica Rabbit’s new story will see her “launch her own private investigative service” and fight crime in Toontown, according to the news article, which will welcome next guests. The article also includes an image of Jessica Rabbit wearing a fedora and trench coat, like that of Bob Hoskins’ private detective from the movie.
Disneyland has not disclosed how Jessica Rabbit’s new story will affect other scenes of the ride.
Disney Parks is not against updating or altering the narrative of classic rides to replace or remove some narrative elements altogether. In June 2020, the parks announced that Splash Mountain would be “completely re-imaged.” New theme inspired by “Princess and the Frog”. The Journey was originally based on the 1946 Disney movie “Song of the South,” which was criticized for portraying Black characters during the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War.
