The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

Plus, director Jason Reitman breaks down a key scene from his new movie The Front Runner, and Kevin Costner looks back at his long career on the big screen, from Field of Dreams to The Bodyguard and more.

First, the first few episodes of LEGO Star Wars All-Stars are available on YouTube right now.

This is clearly for kids, and you can watch the other shorts over on the Disney XD YouTube channel now.

Next up, Jason Reitman digs into this early scene from The Front Runner, the true story of Colorado senator Gary Hart and his campaign for the United States presidency in 1987 that completely imploded when a sex scandal totally wiped him out.
