After the amazing success of Finding Nemo, we couldn’t wait for Finding Dory. We had seen the trailer way back last year and the children kept asking when it was coming to our screens.
No surprise at the excitement of being invited to a special screening of the film at Leicester Square. We were treated to some face painting in the foyer and some under the sea fun. The children enjoyed getting their portraits drawn and made into keychains. And then, we entered the cinema to take our seats for what promised to be a very entertaining film.
The characters in Finding Dory are familiar with a few new ones thrown in.
The story revolves around Dory this time where she finds the need to find her family and goes back to where she came from. Dory suffers from short term memory loss and was separated from her parents when young. She does have bursts of memory that make her want to remember more and find her family. Nemo and Marlin help her and show that friends can be family too.
The animation is quite amazing and 13 years on from Finding Nemo, it definitely shows.
Dory’s character is adorable as the forgetful fish. It is HER film – no two ways about that.
In fact all the characters in the film add to the appeal. It would not be fair to compare it to Finding Nemo really, as both seem to be films on their own rather than one being a sequel.
It’s perfect watching for the holidays with the children.
Here’s a little more about the film from Disney –
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 cinemas July 29, 2016.
