With reboots of The Lion King, Aladdin, and Mulan, Disney seems to be on quite the live-action remake kick of late. While some of these movies have been okay, I prefer to leave these Disney classics in the animated world where they belong.

Guardians of the Galaxy was an awesome movie – I really liked everything about the movie. Like most people, I was rather sad to see (Spoiler Alert) Groot get crushed near the end of the film, but the ending credit scene with baby Groot growing back in a pot proved he wasn’t dead.
Back in the day, E.T. was a fun feel-good movie that gave us hope that aliens could be friendly and cute. It had all the feels. Now you can relive those feels with Funko’s latest offerings as they delve into the world of The ExtraTerrestrial.
