‘Polar Express’ turns into mess; Attraction may need name change

The Polar Express has become a popular holiday train ride around the Chicago area.

But now there’s an effort to stop it.

The Tom Hanks movie, “Polar Express”, has become very popular with kids. They enjoy riding the train around different towns and villages each year.

But, that means that someone is also making money of the intellectual property of Warner Bros.

And Warner Bros is telling everyone involved if you play us, pay us.

WGN’s Robert Jordan is live in Arlington Heights with the story.

    Do you really think Tom Hanks would have played in a movie that would criminalize a train ride for children! Honestly, this is totaly the epitomy of greed …. May this company , their employees or any of their children NEVER EVER RIDE the polar express or whatever its new name will be. Bunch of Grinches, actually Mr Grinch is too good for you.
