“Where do babies come from?” is the question all parents dread hearing, at least according to every family sitcom ever. But if you can wait ’til fall to have the talk, Warner Bros.’ Storks can help you out with a kid-friendly, completely scientifically accurate accounting of how exactly the process works.
As all of us adults know, of course, it begins with the Baby Making Machine on Stork Mountain. The device spits out a tiny human, and a bird (possibly one that sounds exactly like Andy Samberg) is assigned to drop it off at its new home. Along the way, said bird will inevitably run into hilarious and adorable mishaps. Get a little peek at that incredible journey with the latest Storks trailer.

Finding Dory is hitting theaters this weekend, and the buzz before it arrives has been pretty good. Plenty of moviegoers will see for themselves this weekend, with the sequel looking at taking in as much as $120 million.

If you’re like me, you enjoy Pixar’s animated short films almost as much as you do their features. The latest short from the Emeryville-based animation studio is Alan Barillaro‘s directing debut Piper, which in my opinion might be the best theatrical short film from Pixar in a decade.
I first saw this short film at a Finding Dory early press day a few months back, where minutes before the screening not one person outside of Pixar even knew of this short film’s existence. I was gobsmacked by this adorable yet beautiful piece of cinema. I have since seen it two more times and it doesn’t get old. You’ll see the whole short film playing in front of Finding Dory, in theaters later this week. But for now take in this short 24-second preview to get you excited.
