Is There a way to get a "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" Sequel?

According to Wikipedia:
and here's the quotes:
Spielberg discussed a sequel in 1989 with J. J. Abrams as writer and Zemeckis as producer. Abrams's outline was eventually abandoned. Nat Mauldin was hired to write a prequel titled Roger Rabbit: The Toon Platoon, set in 1941 to 1943. Similar to the previous film, Toon Platoon featured many cameo appearances by characters from The Golden Age of American Animation. It began with Roger Rabbit's early years, living on a farm in the midwestern United States. With human Ritchie Davenport, Roger travels west to seek his mother, in the process meeting Jessica Krupnick (his future wife), a struggling Hollywood actress. While Roger and Ritchie are enlisting in the Army, Jessica is kidnapped and forced to make pro-Nazi German broadcasts. Roger and Ritchie must save her by going into Nazi-occupied Europe accompanied by several other Toons in their Army platoon. After their triumph, Roger and Ritchie are given a Hollywood Boulevard parade, and Roger is finally reunited with his mother and father, Bugs Bunny.
If so, Have it come to fruition.

I think it was expensive getting Mickey and Bugs on screen, together. That might have something to do with it.
 
The deal with Disney & Warner to use there characters was that they had equal screen time hence Donald & Duffy do a dueling duet on the piano then Mickey & Bugs parachute together.

The way things are going with Disney they may end up owning the movie rights & the characters rights but it would probably be all CGI unlike the original which was special effect, props, green screen and painting toon character for every individual film cell.
 
IIRC Eisner and Spielberg had a falling out not long after the first film. The logistics of quality live action/animation are also difficult, another reason WFRR holds up so well, that this was part of why a proposed Phineas & Ferb hybrid was ankled.

How do you have a Who framed Roger Rabbit sequel without ASB intervene? I know the Answer, What POD is a Who Framed Roger Rabbit Sequel would likely be in?
 
The Little Mermaid was probably the main reason Disney had no interest. They had a massive, in-house produced hit, and more in the pipeline, so no need to go outside of their own studios. Disney was becoming DISNEY.

Yeah but Who Framed Roger Rabbit is more like a "Warner Bros."-style cartoon rather than "Disney"-Style Animation.

but either way: What might be Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2 plot? Toons meeting Anime Characters?

The movie had two loosely canonical sequel novels, ironically written by the author of the novel loosely adapted into the movie itself
