I do not know about you, but I am super excited to see the highly anticipated Finding Dory, and my family is going to catch an early sneak peek this week before it swims to theaters nationwide Friday, June 17. Finding Nemo was such a favorite in our household, and our family fell right in love with Nemo along with a few million other people. Nemo is just one of those stars that stands out and has become a household name. I mean, how many of us have gone to an aquarium or an aquatic shop only to quickly spot our beloved clown fish, Nemo. For my kids, every clown fish we saw was called Nemo! They just became synonyms for each other. Looking for Nemo (um… clown fish) became the standard for us whenever we found ourselves at a place with an aquarium.
“Finding Nemo” won the 2003 Academy Award® for best animated feature; the film was nominated for three additional Oscars® (original screenplay, original score, sound editing). It was also nominated for a Golden Globe® Award for best motion picture–comedy or musical. In 2008, the American Film Institute named “Finding Nemo” among the top 10 greatest animated films ever made. At the time of its release, “Finding Nemo” was the highest grossing G-rated movie of all time. It’s the fifth highest grossing animated film worldwide. The film has more than 19 million Likes on Facebook, and Dory—with more than 25 million—is the most liked individual character from a Disney or Disney•Pixar film.
Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale?
Directed by Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo,” “WALL•E”) and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer “WALL•E”), the film features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. “Finding Dory” swims into theaters June 17, 2016.
We will also meet a new adorable little creature named Piper. Pixar’s newest short will be featured before FInding Dory and it is sure to warm hearts! After all, just look at how sweet Piper is!
