Their first project, through Archwell Productions (founded by the two), will be “Heart of Invictus” which follows various competitors through their training and path to the Invictus Games The Hague 2020 (now being held in 2022).  All of the athletes are service members who have endured life-changing injuries or illnesses.

Build-A-Bear Bringing Animal Crossing To Life 

Tom Nook already takes all our bells in Animal Crossing and we guess he’s about to in real life as well. Build-A-Bear has revealed their collaboration with Animal Crossing: New Horizons and it’s so cute. They’ve brought Isabelle and Tom Nook to life and they’re even wearing the same outfits as they do in the game. Now before you run to your local Build-A-Bear to try to snag one these, you should know that there’s a queue. Once you’re through you’ll be able to place an order. These two characters are the only ones that have been announced so far but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for Build-A-Bear to do more.
