  • While Hocus Pocus 2 is, sadly, not actually in the works, Enchanted 2 reportedly is. J. David Stem and David N. Weiss (Shrek 2, The Smurfs) will be writing the script, with Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) set to direct. There’s been no word on whether any of the cast has been signed to return. (via The Mary Sue)
  • HBO announced that they’ll be taking Game of Thrones to Spain for their fifth season, presumably to serve as the location for the Martells’ homeland, Dorne. (via Variety)
  • The next episode of Telltale Games’ misery-inducing The Walking Dead Season 2 is due out some time this month. Prepare yourselves. (via Polygon)

  • In an incredibly stupid development, The International eSports Foundation has barred women from competing in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, Ultra Street Fighter 4, and Dota 2 at their 6th Annual eSports Tournament. When asked to clarify, the foundation responded that the decision was made “…in accordance with international sports authorities, as part of our effort to promote e-Sports as a legitimate sports,”. Way to try and emulate one of the worst things about legitimate sports, IeSF. (via IGN)
  • Finally, here’s an official trailer for the upcoming Studio Ghibli film When Marnie Was There. It looks like it’s going to be breathtaking. (via Indie Wire)
