Finding Nemo was one of Disney’s biggest animated films. Grossing a little over three million dollars just in North America alone. It was released in 2003 and it was the second highest grossing film of the year right behind Lord Of The Rings: The Return of the King. Two or three years ago it was mentioned that Disney Pixar might have a sequel to the first movie. Back in April of 2013, Ellen Degeneres, the voice of Dory, did a segment on her show where she announced that there is going to be a sequel to the phenomenon that is Finding Nemo.
If you haven’t seen the trailer for the movie check it out here. Although the trailer has only been out for ten days it already has sixteen million views on YouTube, just showing how big this movie is going to be.
In Finding Dory, only two of the voice actors remain the same. Ellen Degeneres as Dory and Albert Brooks as Marlin. All other voice actors are different and new. Finding Dory has a whole new plot with new characters and new adventures for the fish in the big ocean. From the looks of it, Dory is on a hunt to find her family.
“I think it will be good! Not sure it will be as good as Finding Nemo, but looks to be very entertaining,” says Libby Meenan a freshman nursing major. Naomi Barnes, a freshman, says, “It’s going to be different because it’s going to focus on Dory, but I bet it’s still going to be as good as Nemo. And I’m sure the humor will be as good as the first movie!”
Finding Dory is said to premiere June 17, 2016. Let the countdown begin; there are only about 200 days to go! So count me in to go see Finding Dory; this is definitely a must-see movie for 2016.
