The Amazing Race season 24, episode 3, “Welcome to the Jungle,” just finished airing! Read our recap to find out which all-star team got eliminated, and discuss the events with other fans.

Here are the highlights from The Amazing Race season 24, episode 3, “Welcome to the Jungle”:

After winning the second leg, Brendon and Rachel (the Newlyweds) get a head start to Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. Only six teams will be allowed on the first flight, which is crucial with a three hour time difference. But with all the traffic, Dave and Connor are the first to arrive, quickly followed by Margie and Luke. Next to make the first flight are the Cowboys, the Globetrotters, the Country singers, then the Afghanimals.

Unfortunately, the Newlyweds arrive seventh, so they cannot get on the first flight. With them on the second flight are Youtubers Meghan and Joey, along with John and Jessica.

Roadblock: The teams must grab the Travelocity traveling gnome and propel down the Kiansom Waterfall in Malaysia to get the next clue. Dave and Connor get the first clue that leads them to Kampung Tompinahaton. The Afghanimals easily get the clue next, but the Cowboys mess up when they propel down the waterfall without grabbing the clue. Now they have to wait to try again.

Dave and Connor arrive at the river and must build a bamboo raft to head down the river, and then choose a detour: the river delivery to transport goods and deliver them, or the jungle run that has them going on a hunting safari? Once they’re down the river, they will get the next clue. The top three teams all chose river delivery: Dave and Connor, the Afghanimals, and Maggie and Luke.

Able to hold onto first place, Dave and Connor finish their raft and head down the river, followed by the the Afghanimals and the Cowboys. Margie and Luke weren’t so lucky, and their raft starts falling apart. To make matters worse, they couldn’t use sign language to communicate. The Afghanimals are the first to arrive at the delivery point. The Cowboys arrive just at the Afghanimals are leaving, while Dave and Connor seem to have missed the drop off.

The secnd flight arrives in Malaysia with the Newlyweds, Joey and Meghan, and John and Jessica. They quickly head to the detour with Joey and Meghan in last place but high spirits. John and Jessica quickly get the clue, then the Newlyweds and the Youtubers. Although Meghan and Joey weren’t far behind the other groups, they didn’t hold their taxi and now have to walk to find one.

John and Jessica make a sketchy raft while the Newlyweds seem to have an easier time until they hit the rapids and Rachel can’t help but cry. When Joey and Meghan arrive at the river, they’re alone and start on the raft. As John and Jessica work on the jungle run, the Newlyweds totally wreck their raft and have to put it back together.

The Newlyweds arrive at the jungle just in time for John and Jessica to head onto the next clue. Meghan and Joey head down the river, but aren’t quick enough and the Newlyweds finish hunting before they arrive.

The Country Singers and the Globetrotters are the first teams to go on the jungle run and have a hard time hitting their targets. Dave and Connor still manage to be the first team to get the next clue, which leads them to Tanjun Aru Water Village. They’re followed by the Cowboys and the Afghanimals. The first team to arrive is Dave and Connor, who win a trip for two to Budapest, Hungary from Travelocity.

The Cowboys arrive in second, the Afghanimals in third, Margie and Luke in fourth, the Globetrotters in fifth, the Country Singers in sixth, John and Jessica in seventh, and the Newlyweds arrive in eighth. Sadly, Joey and Meghan arrive in last place and are eliminated.

Disney is making another live-action movie, and this time it’s James and the Giant Peach, to be developed by Director Sam Mendes.

To refresh your memory, James and the Giant Peach is the terrifying delightful children’s movie directed by Henry Selick and based off of the Roald Dahl story. It features nightmare-inducing adorable stop-motion animated bugs that helped James float away from his mean aunts in a — you guessed it — giant peach.

The original film was an interesting mix of live-action characters in the beginning and at the end, with stop-motion animated sequences throughout the middle.

Disney is making another live-action movie, and this time it’s James and the Giant Peach, to be developed by Director Sam Mendes.

To refresh your memory, James and the Giant Peach is the terrifying delightful children’s movie directed by Henry Selick and based off of the Roald Dahl story. It features nightmare-inducing adorable stop-motion animated bugs that helped James float away from his mean aunts in a — you guessed it — giant peach.

The original film was an interesting mix of live-action characters in the beginning and at the end, with stop-motion animated sequences throughout the middle.

Now, according to Deadline, Disney is developing an all-live-action remake of the film. Nick Hornby will write the script, while Joe Roth is in negotiations to sign on as a producer.

If Mendes’ name sounds familiar, it’s because he directed the last two James Bond features, both Skyfall and Spectre, as well as 1999’s American Beauty.

You can check out the trailer for the horrifying original film below:

As of late, Disney has been announcing live-action versions of its properties left and right, including The Nutcracker (which has a huge cast of well-known actors), The Little Mermaid (with Lin-Manuel Miranda attached to help write the music), Beauty and the Beast (starring Emma Watson), and Cruella (starring Emma Stone), among others.

With the amount of remakes — especially in the live-action department — it’s no wonder James and the giant Peach is the latest to be announced.

Hypable speaks to co-founder Jeff Annison about Legion M’s goals, fan engagement, and potential impact on the entertainment industry.

An exciting new project launched over the summer: Legion M, the world’s first fan-owned entertainment company.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Hype Podcast sat down with co-founder and company president Jeff Annison, in order to learn more about the ambitious startup that promises to give fans more creative control of entertainment production.

The full interview is available to download here or via iTunes, or you can stream it below:

In the interview, Annison explains the mission of Legion M, which is to bring fans directly into the production process. Says Annison, “For the first time in history, we are architected to be built from the ground up to be owned by fans.”

With a ‘Legion’ of fan investors behind them, Annison believes that Legion M’s approach to selecting and developing projects will be very different from anything else we’ve seen in Hollywood.

Where usually creators will struggle to make their content stand out from the crowd, “bringing the audience into the process [of creating entertainment], we’ve already got a built-in audience,” Annison explains. “If you can have the audience of content be invested in content, it gives that content a competitive advantage.”

One of the key ways in which Legion M hopes to influence the creative industry is by opening the door for more diverse projects.

As Hollywood is so revenue-driven, oftentimes the ‘risk’ of letting a movie’s lead character be a woman, a person of color and/or a member of the LGBT community is simply considered too great. But Legion M, being owned by fans, has the opportunity to tip the scales. Because if the investors want more diversity and new kinds of stories, that’s exactly what they’re going to get.

“The reason that there are so many superhero movies and reboots and remakes… Hollywood’s figured out the formula. You pick something with an established fanbase, and if you make the movie you know it’s less risky because you know those people are gonna come see the next Superman movie,” says Annison. “Whereas if it’s an unknown story, you just don’t know. So we believe when you make the audience part of the process, these fans that are part of our studio … if you’ve got an audience that’s baked into it, that gives you so much more creative leeway.”

In practice, this means that Legion M, “could come up with a completely new and novel story that’s never been tried before, and know that it’s gonna have some success” — which means that it’d actually get produced, unlike many original ideas that come to Hollywood to die.

Further, fan owners of Legion M can experience unprecedented involvement with the creative process. Not only are they involved with selecting and developing projects, but, “our promise to our investors is that we’re gonna take you along for the ride. When we film a movie, we wanna live-stream from the set. When we have project opportunities, we wanna put them in front of you. We give the Legion a voice.”

To start with, Legion M is partnering with Seth Green and Matthew Senreich’s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, which created Robot Chicken. Annison explains that they still have “dozens” of projects that networks have rejected, and Legion M is working on bringing some of them to life.

In terms of representation, Legion M doesn’t necessarily want to commit to a quota of diversity. Instead, where they expect to be able to influence Hollywood is at the “table” where these decisions are made — and, “because we’re owned by such a broad, diverse group of people, we’ve got a better shot than anybody else at being able to affect that change.”

As Annison explains: “Fans have the ultimate power. Our money is what makes this whole thing spin around. When we combine and come together, we’ve got all the power.”
