In 2003, Pixar released a movie called Finding Nemo. On April 2, 2013, Pixar announced they are making a sequel to Finding Nemo called Finding Dory. “Even though I’m older, I think Finding Dory will be awesome,” says James Syler (8).
In the first movie, Nemo is separated from his father, Marlin. So, Marlin journeys across the entire ocean to find his son. Along the way, Marlin befriends many different sea creatures, including a fish named Dory. Although they seem unlikely friends, Dory’s spunk and enthusiasm motivates Marlin to find his son. Madelyn George (8) says, “I’m excited for Finding Dory because Finding Nemo was the BEST MOVIE EVER!!!”
Pixar has not released the official plot line for Fining Dory yet, but we do know it will take place off the east coast of California, 1 year after Marlin and Nemo are reunited, so there may be a chance we will get to see how some of Nemo’s friends, like Squirt the Turtle, have grown up.
The actress playing Dory, Ellen DeGeneres, is really excited to be making a movie about Dory. She claims that this movie will be a great family movie. She also says that it will be quite funny, and full of heart.
Finding Dory does not come out until 2015, so many people are disappointed they will have to wait so long for the movie to come out. But, at least we know that the world has not lost its taste in great family movies. I can’t wait to see you at the theater!
