FINDING NEMO 3D

Finding Dory brings back some key members of the Finding Nemo voice cast, including Albert Brooks as Marlin and of course Ellen DeGeneres as Dory. But one who couldn’t reprise his role was Alexander Gould, who voiced Nemo in the original film. The reason is obvious: Gould was a small child when he recorded the original Nemo, but nowadays he’s a grownup with a grownup’s voice, whereas Nemo has only aged a few months since the last time we saw him.

Fortunately, Finding Nemo and Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton found another way to work Gould into the film. After the jump, learn where you can find the Finding Nemo actor in Finding DoryRead More »

Rich Moore Finding Dory

At the conclusion of Finding Dory, I was surprised to see Wreck-It Ralph/Zootopia director Rich Moore‘s name listed in the special thanks section of the film’s credits. I decided to ask Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton about it and the fascinating story that followed gives us some insight into how the Disney/Pixar creative ecosystem works, and how the creative heads of each company help push each other to create better stories. What’s the story behind that Rich Moore Finding Dory credit? Find out, after the jump.

Finding Dory Clips

This week brings Pixar Animation’s anticipated sequel Finding Dory, the follow-up to the animation studio’s 2003 hit undersea adventure Finding Nemo. The early buzz on the film is that while it treads the same water that the first film covered, it’s still an outstanding sequel and will get the water works flowing from your eyes.

If you still need some more convincing to catch Finding Dory with your family this weekend, some new clips have just emerged online, featuring a bunch of the new aquatic characters, including Kaitlin Olsen and Ty Burrell as a couple of whales, Ed O’Neill as Hank the octopus. Read More »

Finding Dory Reviews

Finding Dory doesn’t arrive in theaters until next weekend, but a slew of press and critics have already seen the movie as they participate in press junkets with the cast and crew. Today reviews started hitting the web, and for the most part, it seems the follow-up to Finding Nemo is a worthy successor to the original undersea adventure, though it treads much of the same water. For many, it seems to be just as good as the original, inspiring some tears to roll, but there are a few who weren’t as impressed.

Check out the Finding Dory reviews and early buzz after the jump. Read More »

Andrew Stanton

Andrew Stanton had built his entire career on animation, with films like Finding Nemo and Wall-E, before making his live-action debut with 2012’s John Carter. This summer’s Finding Dory brings him back into the Pixar fold, but he’s already looking to mix things up again. In a new interview, Stanton revealed that he wants to take a break from animation and return to live-action. And we may not have to wait long to find out what that next project is.  Read More »

Finding Dory lesbian couple

Pixar’s Finding Dory caused a minor commotion last month, when its latest trailer featured a very brief shot of what appeared to be a lesbian couple. The characters in question only appear for about two seconds (if that), but that was enough time to get the internet buzzing about what might be the studio’s first same-sex couple. Hollywood in general, and Disney in particular, has had a dismal track record with LGBT inclusion in its films. Could this be a step in the right direction?

Now that Finding Dory has actually started to screen, however, it’s sounding like the truth is a little bit murkier. Director Andrew Stanton isn’t denying the characters in question are gay — but he isn’t confirming it, either.  Read More »

Finding Dory

Most of the Pixar films have a co-director, yet most everyone who watches a Pixar movie probably has no idea what the co-director does. So while I was doing a long-lead press day for Pixar’s upcoming sequel Finding Dory, I decided to ask director Andrew Stanton to help explain how his co-director Angus MacLane contributes to the overall film.
