Dory! Who doesn’t love that addled Blue Tang that helped Nemo? Of course, everybody now knows that Dory is getting her own movie – Finding Dory, duuuuuh – but now you can know more with this new trailer!
What I love about this film? More Dory! More of the Tank Gang! Scenes that show what trashing up our oceans can do to the creatures living in it! And, of course, more of that gorgeous Pixar animation. What I didn’t particularly love? I know this is a kids film first and foremost, I kinda wish there were more bits of realism with the fish and invertebrates. Someone picking up a Tang will most likely get a nasty cut thanks to their caudal spine. An octopus shouldn’t be put in a touch tank; they’d clamber right out. (They’re crazy smart – the scene with Hank the octopus wandering around the aquarium building isn’t too far off the mark. I’ve heard that they’re able and ready to get moving if anyone leaves their enclosure open even a crack…)
Enough of my marine bio nerdom. Synopsis!
Six months after the events of the first film, Dory suddenly recalls her childhood memories. Remembering something about “the jewel of Morro Bay, California”, accompanied by Nemo and Marlin, she sets out to find her family. She arrives at the Monterey Marine Life Institute, where she meets Bailey, a white beluga whale; Destiny, a whale shark; and Hank, an octopus, who becomes her guide.
Finding Dory hits theaters June 17th.
