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.
In this edition, watch the Audi commercial made for the Super Bowl with Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams singing the hit Frozen song “Let It Go.” Plus, Uncut Gems star Adam Sandler sits down for a Q&A about his career and life, and Michael Douglas tries to teach you everything he can about acting in about four minutes.
First up, Audi puts Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams in their new e-tron Sportback to save the world again, this time by reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. She cruises around in the car singing “Let It Go” from Frozen and the rest of the city stars joining in as she makes the rounds. Sadly, there is no cameo from Idina Menzel.
Next up, for W Magazine‘s video series Screen Tests, Adam Sandler sat down to answer questions about his life and career. How do he and his wife handle the scenes where he has to be intimate with another woman? When did he have his real first kiss? What posters did he have on his walls as a kid? Get the answers to all those questions and more in the video above.
Finally, Michael Douglas has been acting for over 50 years, so if you need some advice on how to do it, he’s not a bad resource. Thankfully, Netflix got some of his time since he stars in their series The Kominsky Method. Unfortunately, they only got him for about four minutes. But you have to take what you can get while you can get it.
Voice actress Rachel Matthews said she decided to get tested after coming in contact with 'a confirmed case,' but doing so was difficult because tests are 'INSANELY hard to come by.'
Frozen 2 voice actress Rachel Matthews is the latest figure in Hollywood to test positive for the coronavirus.
The 26-year-old star — who voiced the character Honeymaren in Disney's animated feature — revealed the news via Instagram late Monday, saying that she has quarantined herself for the past week. "Unsure of what the next step is been getting mixed info so will keep you posted but obviously will remain in quarantine until told to do otherwise," she wrote.
Continued Matthews: "I'm feeling better, but I will be posting some info that I hope will be helpful to some."
The actress, who lives in the U.S., said that she decided to get tested after coming in contact with "a confirmed case." However, she mentioned that getting tested was difficult because tests are "INSANELY hard to come by."
"Our country is very behind, and we don't have much of a system in place," she said, adding that her symptoms included body chills, fatigue, headache, sore throat, dry cough, pain in her lungs, shortness of breath and loss of appetite.
She urged her followers to get tested if they are experiencing anything similar. "Treat yourself as if you're positive you most likely are," she wrote. "Rest, drink lots of liquids and SELF QUARANTINE."
Matthews' post comes just days after Disney+ released Frozen 2 three months early to "surprise families with some fun and joy during this challenging period."

The frequently circulated fun fact during the ongoing coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has been that Shakespeare wrote King Lear during a plague. It’s a piece of trivia that has become both a source of inspiration and a source of mockery, because who really wants to be productive during a pandemic?
But Disney Animation has shown us all up — and become the godsend for parents everywhere — by releasing a series of animated Frozen shorts, recorded and animated completely from home. At Home With Olaf, with dialogue recorded by Josh Gad, is a new digital animated series that will debut on Disney+ this week and make us all feel bad for not writing our novel while in quarantine.
The staff at Disney Animation just raised the bar on working from home. The animators, sound engineers, and Olaf voice actor Josh Gad have banded together to create the At Home With Olaf animated digital series, set to debut on Disney+ this week. Disney animation director Hyrum Osmond, who worked as head of animation on Disney’s Moana, spearheaded the project, which will follow the fan-favorite Frozen snowman on several adventures in a series of digital shorts.

The teaser for the digital series shows Olaf happily throwing snowballs when he accidentally throws the head of a little snowman friend. While there’s no dialogue in the short clip, that is clearly Gad making the little grunts and noises. Gad, who has also been contributing to coronavirus relief efforts and quarantined children’s boredom by reading books to Frozen fans online in his Olaf voice, revealed that he was approached by Frozen director Jennifer Lee and Osmond to record some dialogue for the shorts from home. The Disney Animation staff even helped him set up the appropriate sound equipment to get the best-quality sound, Gad revealed in a behind-the-scenes photo.
“My friends Jennifer Lee & Hyrum Osmond called me up one day & asked me if I would be able 2 record some dialogue & sounds as Olaf from home,” Gad said in a tweet. “These little shorts done from home by Hyrum & the Disney Animation team are so charming & hopefully provide a smile during these scary times.”
Here’s a behind the scenes look at me recording new Olaf dialogue from home for #AtHomeWithOlaf in conjunction with @DisneyAnimation led by @mrhyrum and the geniuses all working from homes to bring these new shorts to life. Also, guys, I’m now a sound engineer...
