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 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.

I was as hesitant about a sequel to Finding Nemo as anyone else, but the closer we get the release date of Finding Dory, the more optimistic I get regarding this whole film. It looks gorgeously animated, funny and charming. Most importantly, there are shreds of evidence in the various trailers that suggest this talking fish movie will reduce me to a blubbering mess in true Up and Inside Out fashion. Bring it on, Pixar. This wouldn’t be the first time you’ve brought a sledgehammer down upon my fragile emotions.
The first Finding Dory clip that has debuted online doesn’t feature any heartstring tugging, but it does feature the return of few familiar faces and it’s perfectly adorable.

This summer brings Finding Dory to theaters, the sequel to Pixar Animation’s hit film Finding Nemo from 13 years ago. The story follows Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) as she sets out to find her family. And as the new Finding Dory trailer illustrates, she lost them a long time ago, when she was a much younger fish. There’s also the introduction of the marine life institute that Dory gets arrives at when some divers find her caught in those pesky, plastic pop can rings. At the institute she meets a whole array of new colorful underwater friends who might be able to help her out.

Dory’s not so hot at remembering names, or faces, or much of anything, really, but the Pacific regal blue tang made an unforgettable impression in the first Finding Nemo. Her warmth, generosity, and sunny (if oblivious) optimism made her the breakout character of that movie, even more so than Marlin or Nemo himself. So, thirteen years later, she’s finally getting to lead her own Pixar feature.
Finding Dory picks up a few months after the events of Finding Nemo, as Dory tries to journey back home to the family she’s forgotten. Marlin and Nemo tag along for the ride, as Dory meets friends both old and new — including at least one friend who’s simultaneously old and new, since we’ve never met her but she remembers Dory from way back. Ellen DeGeneres, who returns to voice Dory, has just unveiled the latest Finding Dory trailer online, and you can see it after the jump. Read More »

A lot’s changed for most of us in the past 13 years, but Dory, it seems, is right where we left her. That’s partly because only a few months have changed in her world — but it’s also because she’s still the blue tang so forgetful that in the latest Finding Dory teaser, has trouble remembering she’s the Dory of the title. Instead, she suggests an alternate interpretation of the title. Watch the new Finding Dory teaser after the jump. Read More »

If you thought Ellen DeGeneres‘ star-studded, Twitter-breaking Oscars selfie couldn’t possibly get any more charming, think again.
