VIDEO: Seth Rogen parodies Walt Disney in a new promo for “Sausage Party”

in Disney, Movies, Television

In a bout of pure, unbridled hilarity, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures have released a promo video for Sausage Party, The movie is the first R-rated CG animated comedy from writers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir.

The best part: It’s a direct parody of the “Wonderful World of Disney”-style behind-the-scenes shows from the ’50s. And it’s glorious.

What’s the movie actually about? Well, try this on for size: one sausage leads a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store.

The upcoming movie features the talents 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. That’s one heck of a cast!

The film is directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan, and it will be released on August 12! What do you guys think of the promo? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

    Rogen has repeatedly said he couldn’t STAND the CGI movies he was forced to make at Dreamworks, and…this whole movie sort of shows it.
    You could cut the stoner passive-hostility with a chainsaw.

    Adam McCabe can always be counted on for bouts of pure, unbridled hyperbole.

    The story does kind of interest me, but it’s Seth Rogen. Anything this guy puts out is nothing but dick jokes and complete idiocy. He and his cast are basically doing the same things they’ve done in their previous films, like “The Interview.” No variety. All he does is play the same stupid slacker who likes to get stoned. I blame him for how awful “The Green Hornet” was. He only played himself and not who the character was even supposed to be.

    In other words: No. I will not see this film. I don’t support anything he’s done. I’ve had enough of this untalented hack, and he will not be getting my money. I don’t mind seeing an R-rated animated film, and if it’s done with cleverness like “Deadpool,” it should work. But this is Rogen. I’m not banking on it.

      Don’t blame Rogen for Green Hornet–
      Blame the producers who heard Kevin Smith was going to do a (serious) Hornet movie, and decided to do what they thought was going to be “Kevin Smith’s Hornet” when Smith dropped it. (Why else would anyone in the -world- hire Michel Gondry for a comic-book movie?)

      But yeah, if you’re WONDERING whether this CGI movie was Rogen’s personal foul-mouthed stoner tantrum against “kiddy” animated movies, the Walt bit clinches it.
