HEADLINES: New Sabastian and Umbrella Academy

Artwork promoting the live-action version of The Little Mermaid has revealed Sebastian the crab’s new look, which is more realistic due to the film’s use of CGI animation and live-action. Some fans appreciate the new design as more akin to an actual crab, while others are concerned it may make him less expressive or recognizable. The upcoming film has faced backlash since its announcement, with some racist comments in response to Halle Bailey being cast as Ariel. However, there have also been positive reactions from young Black children. The film will follow the same story as the original animated feature, and is set to release in theaters on May 26.

The production for the final season of the superhero series is currently underway in Toronto. The series will see the return of the main cast, including Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, and David Castañeda, among others. The show’s executive producers and co-executive producers will also return to wrap up the series. Offerman has been receiving Emmy buzz for his role in HBO’s The Last Of Us, while Mullally can currently be seen in Starz’s Party Down. Cross has recently been involved in developing Guru Nation, a comedy for Paramount+.
