Who’s ready for some football? That’s what I’ve been hearing all week this week, since the Big Game is here in Atlanta. We’ve been living and breathing the event for the past week. It’s been interesting to watch.

If you’re not interested in football, or even if you are, I’ve got some great articles for you to read this week. Many are losing the minds over the long awaited release of Kingdom Hearts 3, you’ll be able to catch Black Panther for free, and more.

One of the big questions as Disney moves forward with the Fox acquisition is what will happen to “The Simpsons”. Variety takes a closer look.

Black Panther will return to the big screen to celebrate Black History Month from February 1–7, at 250 participating AMC Theatres locations. To ensure that the movie is accessible to all, tickets are free and there will be two showings per day at each participating theater.

Apparently, there may be a Princess Diaries 3 in the works. Would you go see it?

Not long ago documents had leaked that showed that Universal Orlando’s upcoming third theme park was to be called “Fantastic Worlds.” But it looks like Warner Brothers might object to the new name.

Comcast’s theme park revenue increased by 15% over this quarter.
