Welcome to another all-video edition of Movie Morsels! Today we’ve got lots of good stuff to give your tired peepers a break from reading text, including a hilarious new Sausage Party parody of animation pioneer Walt Disney, a behind-the-scenes look at the weaponry of Warcraft, a new Popstar music video, fresh clips from Alice Through the Looking Glass, and more!
Few figures in pop culture history are as beloved and revered as Walt Disney, which is why comedians take such delight in poking fun at the late legend. While some spoofs go a little too far (sorry, Seth MacFarlane, but Walt did not have his body frozen after death, nor did he hate Jewish people, as your Family Guy would have us believe), a new viral video has arrived online that gets the mix of affection and outrageousness just right. What would a promo for Seth Rogen’s animated Sausage Party look like if Disney himself had made this R-rated film? Probably something like this…
My Animation Imaginatorium has cooked up up a new movie called “Sausage Party”. Check it out: https://t.co/IvgfPHwWLT

Featuring the voices of Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek, Sausage Party starts cooking in theaters on August 12.
Director Duncan Jones’ long-awaited Warcraft adaptation will be here at last on June 10. Hardcore fans will be delighted with a new video look at the film’s highly detailed prop weapons, and possibly recognize a blade or two. Rob Kazinsky, who plays warrior orc Orgrim Doomhammer, gives us a tour…
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping
If you missed last weekend’s season finale of Saturday Night Live, then you missed the debut of the Lonely Island’s latest music video masterpiece “Finest Girl” (a.k.a. the “Bin Laden Song”). The song, performed by Andy Samberg’s character Conner4Real, ties into the group’s new comedy epic Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Well, breathe easy, folks, because we’ve got you covered with the uncensored version…
Alice Through the Looking Glass
Two new clips from Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass aren’t exactly doing a lot to convince me the film will be any better an adaptation than its (admittedly wildly successful) Tim Burton-helmed predecessor, Alice in Wonderland. But if watching Mia Wasikowska fall from the sky and into a bush, or Johnny Depp and Sacha Baron Cohen argue with each other in silly costumes and makeup, is your thing, well, then enjoy…
Finally today, pop superstar Sia stopped by The Ellen Show to perform her end credits theme song to Finding Dory, which finds host Ellen Degeneres return to her role as the lovable forgetful fish of Finding Nemo. Fittingly enough, that song is a rendition of Nat King Cole’s classic “Unforgettable”…
Directed by Nemo‘s Andrew Stanton, Finding Dory swims into theaters on June 17.
