Stephen Curry may be an NBA all-star, but his Connect Four game could use a little fine tuning!

The Golden State Warriors star faced off against Barack Obama in a round of the classic Hasbro game — and things didn't go so well for the athlete!

The two put their game faces on to promote the President's My Brother's Keeper initiative — which launched in 2014 to help disadvantaged youth, specifically boys and young men of color.

Considering E.B. is pregnant with her second child, we think this kid friendly role is the perfect choice! Not to mention she'll get to hang out with the energetic and vocalist extraordinaire Kristin Chenoweth!

As for Blunt's character, that's still to be revealed. All we know is that she'll join friends Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity as they they try to save their beloved Ponyville from dark forces.

Is it just us or do these pony names sound like they were inspired by a strip club? Ha!

Either way, we're super excited to hear Emily's neighs and whinnies in 2017!

This is absolutely awful!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been a huge success and sparked a new generation of fans.

It's about time!

As we previously reported, Hasbro made a MAJOR flub AGAIN by leaving out the character of Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, from their newly released Star Wars-themed Monopoly game.

The company had previously failed to include the lead female character from The Force Awakens in certain toy sets and instead included generic stormtroopers.

Both of their blunders caused fans to take to social media and complain about the missing main character by using the hashtags #WheresRey and #WhereIsRey.

Apparently the toy company has received so much backlash that they decided to do something about it! They're now going to include the fan-favorite character of Rey in an updated version of the game!

This is absurd!

There has been quite a bit of backlash online revolving around the lack of female Star Wars characters missing from action figure sets.

Sound familiar? It should if you're a fan of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, who got similar treatment from Disney toy lines earlier this year!

Social media users have taken to Twitter and Instagram to share pictures of box sets (above) of the characters being sold in a set which somehow leaves out Daisy Ridley's Rey — who's the MAIN CHARACTER in the film!

In fact, Hasbro — one of the toy manufacturers — even includes a generic stormtrooper and a Tie Fighter Pilot but not Gwendoline Christie's Captain Phasma who's supposed to return for sequels!
