Are you ready for Finding Dory? Because the gang at Screen Junkies are, and they’re getting you prepared with an Honest Trailer for the 2003 Disney/Pixar hit Finding Nemo. You remember, the one that you absolutely loved; until you watch it again, and realize Nemo’s mom and siblings were eaten by a barracuda in the opening few minutes. So get ready to well up your eyes, because Disney is about to hit you in the heartstrings again. Hopefully this sequel is more Toy Story 2 than Cars 2…
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.
Pixar has a history of making awesome movies for kids that are in NO WAY movies for kids. Take Toy Story 3. It’s a movie about human boy Andy’s lovable toys, like Woody and Buzz and Slinky the dog”¦ except there’s a homicidal “Governor from Walking Dead” style villain toy and an ending that sees our cute toy heroes accept their demise in an incinerator! Or WALL-E, a movie with a charming robot, and adorable cockroach; which was really hammering home to the parents in the audience the dangers of laziness, waste, and pollution. Let’s not even get into Up, a movie that literally reached in and yanked the tears out by the gallon”¦ unless you were a kid laughing at the talking dog”¦ “SQUIRREL!!!”
With these in mind, the gang at ScreenJunkies debuted their latest Honest Trailer this week, for the latest Disney/Pixar film guaranteed to go over the heads of children everywhere while forcing their parents into odd conversations after”¦ Inside Out.
