Watch: ‘Oswald Down the Rabbit Hole’ Official Teaser

It’s ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ meets ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ as Lilton Stewart III and Lucinda Bruce capture the magic of iconic cartoon characters through the lens of horror. 

Enjoy this cryptic teaser for Oswald Down the Rabbit Hole, which sets the unsettling and tense vibe of the movie, and shares a sneak peek of the gory, menacing sight of Oswald’s rabbit, all set to nostalgic cartoon music.

Lilton Stewart III, the award-winning American filmmaker behind November 11th Pictures, has teamed with producer Lucinda Bruce, producer and owner of Lady of the Light Productions, for a sinister take on an iconic cartoon classic that encompasses the pure horror genre.

Oswald follows main character Art and some of his closest friends as they track down his long-lost family lineage. When they find his Great-Grandpa Oswald’s abandoned home, they are transported to a place lost in time, shrouded by dark Hollywood Magic. The group finds that they are not alone when the cartoon Rabbit, a dark entity, comes to life. Art and his friends must work together to escape their magical prison before the Rabbit gets to them first.


The film is produced in partnership with Mana Animation Studio for animation, Tandem Post House for post-production and VFX Supervisor, Bob Homami, who is known for The Tomorrow War, Oblivion, and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Much like Pooh, Tigger, and Mickey Mouse, the Oswald character entered the public domain on January 1, 2023. Originally owned by Disney, control of the cartoon rabbit shifted to Universal in 1928, leading to the creation of Mickey Mouse to compensate for the loss. Nothing says "copyright expiration" like a horror reimagining!
