Sequels are becoming more popular over at Pixar. While the studio prides itself more on its original storytelling, their sequels are not to be overlooked. As we have seen, these sequels are not just an easy cash grab, they have heartfelt meaningful stories that are able to tap into every emotion. Finding Dory is proof of that. Not even 13 years since the release of the film was enough for fans or Ellen DeGeneres to forget about the impact that Finding Nemo has created. Now the Blu-ray is out, and we are here to review all the special features for you. Don’t forget to check out our review of the film. Check it out below.
No one could have ever imagined that there would be a sequel to Finding Nemo. And yet, 13 years after the film’s release, we are getting one. But Finding Dory isn’t exactly the kind of film you’d expect to see, especially in a sequel. If anything, the film can stand on its own, and you don’t even need to watch Nemo to know what is going on in Dory. In it, we see that Dory is able to recall a once long-lost memory of her parents, and sets out on a journey with Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence). Together, they swim across the Pacific to an aquarium sanctuary, where Dory meets some old friends and makes some new ones too. But there is a real heartfelt message that may hit close to home for some. Remember, Dory suffers from short-term memory loss, and she sees that as a debilitating weight that can frustrate and worry those around her. But her optimism and upbeat personality, plus living by the “just keep swimming” mantra, gives her the spirit she needs to carry on and look for new ways to do things in her own way.
We were recently invited to sit down with a group of journalists to talk the to cast and directors of the film to talk about that message and how it really isn’t meant for one specific group of people but something that is more universal.
A new trailer for Disney-Pixar’s Finding Dory was bound to drop sooner or later, and who better to release the trailer than Ellen DeGeneres, the voice of Dory, the lovable and absented-minded blue fish. The film is the follow-up to 2003’s Finding Nemo, which also won an Academy Award. The new trailer is scheduled to make its debut on Wednesday, March 2.
The first trailer for Finding Dory, Pixar’s follow-up to their 2003 animated hit Finding Nemo, has been released online.
The trailer is of the teaser variety, setting up the sequel’s story. The movie centers around the first film’s forgetful fan favorite, Dory (once again voiced by Ellen Degeneres), as a fragment of her memory involving her family returns to her, leading her to set off on a mission to find them.
You can check out the first trailer for Finding Dory below, along with a poster for the movie.
After a short-lived stint with live-action films, Andrew Stanton returns home to direct Finding Dory, a sequel to the fan favorite Finding Nemo. Angus MacLane (Toy Story of Terror) joins him as co-director. Rather than just have another story about a missing fish, the follow-up changes a few things up by making Dory go missing after realizing that she got separated from her family after being hit with short-term memory loss. Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks will reprise their voice roles as Dory and Marlin respectively, with Hayden Rolence replacing Alexander Gould as Nemo.
During the Walt Disney Animation Studios presentation at the D23 Expo on Friday, we learned that Finding Dory will be adding Ty Burrell (Modern Family) as Bailey, a beluga white whale, Ed O’Neill (Modern Family) an octopus with a missing arm, and Kaitlin Olson (Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as a whale shark. More here below on their characters plus a description of the footage that was shown at the panel.
