Finding Dory Header

Andrew Stanton’s career in live-action filmmaking may be on hold for right now, but there is no question that he knows his way around directing an animated film. It was announced last year that he along with Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks are returning for a Finding Nemo sequel. Now Disney has announced that the sequel is officially titled Finding Dory, and Pixar has scheduled the film to be released on November 25, 2015.

It’s a big ocean, so we’ll be seeing brand new characters enter the fold, and the film will take place a year after the events of Finding Nemo, where our fish friends from both the ocean and the fish tank find themselves swimming along the California coastline.

Finding Nemo 3D Image

After lots of negotiating, Disney•Pixar has reached a deal with Albert Brooks to reprise his role as Marlin the clown fish in Finding Nemo 2.

We found out that a sequel was on the way with Andrew Stanton returning to direct back in July, and that Ellen DeGeneres had signed on to reprise her role as Dory just month later. Brooks, however, was apparently a little bit trickier to lock up, and it’s said that he’ll be paid rather handsomely for the gig.

Finding Nemo 3D Poster

Somewhere beyond the sea, Finding Nemo returns to theatres in 3D! The breathtakingly gorgeous animated feature first provided audiences with a glimpse into the environments and lives of the ocean’s inhabitants just about ten years ago. Only Pixar could develop such an enchanting atmosphere with a heart-tugging story that grasps the audience’s full attention as much as the visual “eye candy.” For a number of reasons, this is quite possibly the most immersive and entertaining 3D film I have experienced.

To be considered in this extraordinary league requires several components, and Nemo delivers in all of these ways. For one, you need a compelling plot. Who can argue with gripping storytelling that ties us to the universal theme of parents allowing their children to let go? In this case, little clownfish Nemo’s surprising capture by a diver startles us. Here, caring father Marlin (voiced by the perfectly-cast Albert Brooks) finally brings Nemo (Alexander Gould) to his first day of school, and in a matter of minutes and an act of defiance, Nemo wanders beyond the reef. Caught. Gone. We feel for Marlin, lost without his little boy, and also for his son, now stuck in a dentist’s office aquarium. Now it’s up to each of the fish to face their fears, overcome their doubts, and attempt to reunite. Compelling, check.

Failure Of ‘John Carter’ Means ‘Finding Nemo 2’ Is Next For Andrew Stanton

Finding Nemo Image

Recently it was revealed that a sequel to this writer’s personal favorite Disney*Pixar movie, Finding Nemo, was on the way with original director Andrew Stanton locked in to return to what’s currently known simply as Finding Nemo 2, and Ellen Degeneres the first star to sign on for another trip into the Deep Blue.

Stanton recently stepped outside of the family of geniuses over at Pixar in order to make his live-action feature debut, John Carter, for Disney. The movie was considered by many to be a decent popcorn flick, but, for numerous reasons, it would become one of the biggest box office flops of all time, costing over $250 million and only making $73 million domestically ($282.7 million worldwide).

Because of this unfortunate result, a sequel to the movie was scrapped, moving Nemo 2 to the top of Stanton’s list.

Rex and Bonnie in Partysaurus Rex

Disney continues its re-releasing of films in theaters with the 3D treatment of Finding Nemo hitting the big screen on September 14th. The good news is that we’re going to be treated to a new Toy Story short film titled Partysaurus Rex playing in front of Nemo.

Partysaurus Rex features Rex (voiced by Wallace Shawn), the insecure toy T-Rex in the Toy Story gang. In the short, our favorite toy dinosaur is the star when Bonnie takes him for a dip in the tub.

See some images from Partysaurus Rex and check out a clip from the short here below. And remember to see the whole thing in theaters September 14!

Ellen DeGeneres

Last month we reported that Andrew Stanton had been given the go ahead to put a sequel for Finding Nemo into motion. When that was announced, some wondered what the plot of the story might be. While we are still a long ways away from finding that out, we now have word that Ellen DeGeneres will be reprising her role as the forgetful but ever so friendly fish, Dory, in Finding Nemo 2.

As earlier reported, the Pixar big wigs fell in love with the concept of the story for a Finding Nemo sequel. So this could be a fitting sequel to one of Pixar’s most popular titles.

Rex and Bonnie in Partysaurus Rex

Rex, the Tyrannosaurus Rex from the Toy Story films, is a misunderstood dinosaur. Although he is in the form of a terrifying tyrannosaurus rex, the toy is hilariously skiddish and has a heart of gold. But after taking a back seat for so long, Rex is finally getting a short of his own. Check out the image preview here below of this short, titled Partysaurus Rex, which will be attached to the Finding Nemo 3D re-release.

Here’s what Partysaurus Rex director Mark Walsh (animator for previous Pixar films like Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille) told Entertainment Weekly:

“If you’re a bath toy you get really intense playtime. It’s like a party. Then when the water goes down you can’t move. You’re helpless. And that’s pathetic, these guys in bottom of the tub all the time.”

Finding Nemo

Finding a story to tell for a possible Finding Nemo sequel is quite difficult, but you can bet that Pixar is working on bringing audiences back into Australian waters and reintroducing us to Marlin, Nemo, Dory, Crush, and Bruce.

Deadline reports that Finding Nemo director Andrew Station has found that a story to tell, that the studio loves the idea, and that he’ll be back to direct the sequel. The director is one of the most recognizable people on the Pixar staff, having served as executive producer for a number of Pixar films, as well as the director for Finding Nemo and Wall-E. The former film earned an Academy Award for Best Animated Picture and is currently Pixar’s second highest grossing movie.

Disney In Depth: Top 10 Funniest Pixar Characters

Welcome to another edition of Disney In Depth! This week, in honor of Disney-Pixar’s most recent feature, Brave, I will be focusing on some of the best elements of Pixar’s films: funny characters. They evoke a laugh or two during perilous scenes, and manage to make us smirk when a situation seems far from humorous. These are the funniest of the bunch, offering a witty quip or inspiring a gag. This animation studio is known for developing deep characters, in both their personalities and designs. Thanks to Pixar’s brilliant team of writers and the talented voice artists who made these images into fully-fleshed individuals, we have a bunch of characters to root for and giggle along with. Here are the ones I find as most hilarious.
