As if to calm all of our fears, they announced that they were still dedicated to bringing Hungry Hungry Hippos, Monopoly and Action Man to the big screen. Who knows if they’ll ever actually get made, but if they don’t, we can still get a view into what the trailer for the Hippos movie will look like thanks to our good friend ChugsTheMonkey and his mash-up skills.
