This Week In Entertainment: Dumbo, Loughlin, and More


Dumbo Is A ‘Tear Jerker’

The new movie version of the classic Disney film Dumbo may be a little darker than its source material.  The film is a remake of the 1941 hit classic, centered on the titular character and his comically large ears. However, Dumbo apparently deviates from the original.

“They both deal with topics and issues that children and families and grown-ups face in the world every day – loss, grief, guilt, shame, all those things. But at the same time, it’s done in the context of making it accessible to children, and not too much to bear,” actor Colin Farrell said.

Lori Loughlin Dropped From TV After College Scandal

Hallmark said it had dropped actress Lori Loughlin from future projects on the channel. This comes after police charged Loughlin for taking part in a college admissions scandal. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels” involving the actress, the company said in a statement.

In addition, Loughlin’s daughter Olivia lost her Sephora sponsorship over the scandal. Loughlin and her husband paid almost $500k in bribes to get Olivia and her sister Isabella into the University of Southern California.

Blizzard Announces Free To Play WoW Weekend

For the first time in the history of the game, Blizzard is allowing old WoW players with inactive accounts to return to the game for free. However, it may not be what players are expecting.
