BREAKING: Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin at Disneyland Getting Cultural Sensitivity Update Making Jessica Rabbit Lead Character
We just earlier today reported on the Jessica Rabbit figure being removed from the trunk of a car and replaced by dip barrels on Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin . This caused speculation as to whether or not the figure was being refurbished, or if it was determined the visual was no longer appropriate. Well, it seems it was the latter as Disneyland has announced an overhaul of the entire ride.
According to the OC Register, Disneyland is updating the ride with Jessica Rabbit as the central figure, in order to make the ride more relevant. Jessica will now be “a private eye determined to stamp out a Toontown crime wave”. The scene where the character was in the trunk and the finale of the ride are confirmed to receive changes, but beyond that nothing has been announced yet.
Jessica is briefly visible in our full ride video from May, which you can watch below:
