Lilton Stewart III and Lucinda Bruce have teamed up to make the vision for the film come to life, delivering a “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” meets “Nightmare on Elm Street” vibe 

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Lilton Stewart III, award-winning American filmmaker and creator of November 11th Pictures is working alongside Lucinda Bruce, well-established and prominent film producer to create “Oswald Down the Rabbit Hole,” a film capturing the magic of iconic cartoon characters through the eyes of horror. “Oswald Down the Rabbit Hole” is set to begin filming in Spring 2024, with the highly anticipated announcement teaser trailer releasing this month.  

The film will follow main character, Art, and some of his closest friends to help track down his long-lost family lineage. When they find his Great-Grandpa Oswald’s abandoned home, they end up getting transported to a place lost in time, shrouded by dark Hollywood Magic.  

The group finds that they are not alone when Art’s Great-Grandpa’s come-to-life cartoon Rabbit, a dark entity, decides their lives belong to it. Art and his friends must work together to escape their magical prison before the Rabbit gets to them first. 

“I found my inspiration for Oswald’s rabbit from the cartoon ‘Oswald Trolley Troubles’ and saw it as an opportunity to take a horrific spin on a character that could spark some nostalgia among its audience,” Lilton Stewart III, Director said. “I was inspired by a few other films that dipped their toe into this new way of storytelling by having some of these characters turn to the dark side and am excited to debut my own adaptation of this.” 

The announcement teaser trailer for the film was recently filmed and is set to be released this month, with plans to begin filming for the movie in Spring 2024, which has a 142-page script. 

“I am thrilled to be teaming up with Lilton for such a unique spin on things in the horror space,” Bruce said, Producer and owner of production company Lady of Light Productions. “Being a part of a first-of-its-kind film like this one is an honor and I can’t wait to showcase what we have in store for the movie.”
