We think Disney should do a live-action remake of every single film they've ever done ever.
Except for maybe the direct-to-video sequel Tarzan II. And maybe a whole lot of other direct-to-video sequels.
One live-action remake we're innerested to see is the remake of Dumbo!
It already sounds like a weird idea, but guess who they've just tapped to direct… Tim Burton!
So now, the live-action Dumbo remake, which will feature a mixture of
This is great news!
We just wish it was happening a bit sooner!
The twin touring circus companies — Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus — have made a MAJOR announcement on Thursday about the future of their circuses and one of the main pieces of information that they let loose concerned the elephants in the show.
And apparently the company will be phasing out the magnificent creatures from BOTH shows!
Feld Entertainment announced that
Olivia Munn isn't just beautiful, smart and famous… she's also compassionate — her best quality if you ask us!
Last week, she wrote a plea for help on behalf of a poor elephant named Nosey.
Nosey the circus elephant suffers from debilitating arthritis and Olivia took it upon herself to write a letter on PETA's behalf to Tom Vilsack, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. It read:
When it comes to animals, no matter how good things get, they're rarely good enough.
And that's why PETA has felt the need to step in and remind us of the fact that animals often get the short end of the stick, even under the best circumstances.
Just like with Disney's live-action remake of Dumbo!
Everyone can get excited over the fact that Disney isn't using real animals in the movie. That's an amazing, progressive step forward for the film industry.
But that doesn't change the fact that the Dumbo story ends with him becoming a star attraction at the circus.
While it's a happy ending, in real life, an elephant ending up at a circus is never happy.
A PETA spokesperson said:
It's quite possible Ian Somerhalder is the perfect human.
Ian is not only beautiful and talented, he's also a real-life superhero!!!
The UN ambassador is fighting for the lives of elephants and he's taken his passion all the way to congress in Washington D.C. to testify on behalf of The Ian Somerhalder Foundation.
In all seriousness though, Ian does bring up just how in danger the species is thanks to poachers.
Satao was a seriously impressive elephant who lived in Tsavo East National park in northern Kenya.
He was one of the last of the great tuskers: genetically unique bull elephants whose tusks are so huge, they can rest them on the ground while standing.
Sadly, Satao was killed by poachers.
