*Souls of innocent children not included.

Grab your broomsticks, stir up the cauldron and light your magic candles because game night just took a wicked twist!

Partnering with Ravensburger, Disney just released a Hocus Pocus board game and it will make for a magically good game night. This board game is unique in that game players are not competing with one another, rather they must all work together to stop the Sanderson sisters from completing their potion before sunrise. With the help of Thackery Binx the cat, you will have to dodge Winifred, Sarah and Mary as they cast spells and use potions to thwart your valiant efforts.

“The Black Flame Candle has been lit. Now the Sanderson witches you must outwit; Or with a wretched evil potion, a foul spell they’ll set in motion. Stun the witches and ruin the brew before the sun can rise anew! Work together to stop the Sanderson sisters from draining the lives of Salem’s children by ruining their potion before the sun rises!” It’s like being in the movie!

The Hocus Pocus board game is available for $19.99 on Amazon and includes one cauldron board, 50 Ingredient cards, a Witch board, 13 Spell cards, a Sun token, 4 trick tokens, a rulebook, and one black cat Binx meeple.

‘The One And Only Ivan’ Is Torn Between His Two Worlds In The Adorably Meaningful Disney+ Trailer

Published

on

Leave it to talking animals to teach us an important lesson about where we belong.

The trailer for the Disney+ The One And Only Ivan promises a story filled with heartwarming conversations, endearing characters and a star studded cast. Based on the best-selling children’s book by Katherine Applegate, the film follows the story of Ivan the silverback gorilla who is torn between staying with his circus family and the man who raised him or returning to his roots in the jungle. The animals talk too, by the way, which is just icing on the cutesy cake.

The film is jam packed with A-list talent like Angelina Jolie, Danny DeVito, Hellen Mirren, Brooklynn Prince, Ramón Rodríguez, Ariana Greenblatt, Chaka Khan, Mike White, Ron Funches, Phillipa Soo, and Bryan Cranston.

The One And Only Ivan is available for streaming on August 14th.

The Trailer For The Aretha Franklin Biopic ‘Respect’ Will Leave You Singing Jennifer Hudson’s Praises

Published

on

She deserves all the R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Everything written below is riddled with bias because I love Jennifer Hudson and think she can do no wrong and if I had a genie’s lamp one of my three wishes would be to have her record the outgoing message on my voicemail. The other two wishes are not important right now.

The official trailer for Respect, the Aretha Franklin biopic, debuted during the BET Awards last night and it looks like we are all in for a treat. In the trailer, the incomparable Ms. Hudson is transformed into Aretha and soundtracks the preview with a powerful cover of “Respect.” The Oscar-winner’s voice is not the only notable talent worth mentioning. The trailer shows off Hudson’s acting chops too as she demonstrates Franklin’s growth from insecure songstress to the powerhouse Queen of Soul. The film’s description reads “following the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career from a child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom, RESPECT is the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to find her voice.”

Hudson is joined with a cast filled with heavy hitters like Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Forest Whitaker, Mary J. Blige and Marc Maron. Now, the only bad thing I saw in the entire 90-second trailer was the release date. The film was originally expected to hit theaters in October but due to COVID-19 we now have to wait all the way until December! At least I know what the soundtrack to this year’s Christmas will be.

Check out the amazing trailer below!
