The semi-sequel to the Pixar adventure Finding Nemo, pits everyones favorite forgetful blue tang fish on the search for her own family, aided by some old friends and making a bunch of new friends along the way!
Welcome back to our pals that inhabit the ocean floor and their daily flukes and fashions, where we left everything more or less as it was in the previous movie. But seeing Nemo and his dad be as happy as they can morbidly be reminds Dory that she forgot her own family somewhere along the way and of course, she has to go off looking for them in all sorts of unexpected places.
Finding Dory centers around the lovely idea brought forth in the first Pixar fish movie, that not all families are born, some are made from friends with whom you’ve shared marvelous and occasionally terrible adventures. And the lengths your adopted family will go to, to get you out of a jam, are tremendous and wonderful. Even inside a fish hospital, a Marine Life Institute for those of us humans watching, there are great friends who will go to near-impossible reaches to help you, help Dory as we watch, find that you on the inside that connects your heart to your family, no matter what kind of fish, mammal, or other they might be. Always remember, just keep swimming! And don’t forget to stay for the after-credits surprise easter egg!
