Finding Dory Review
Finding Dory, the newest of the Pixar movies, hit cinemas this weekend and of course I had to see it. 13 (yes 13!) years ago Finding Nemo graced our screens so seeing the same old favourites, and some great new additions, on the screen again was amazing and incredibly nostalgic.
Finding Dory follows the story of Dory, a forgetful fish, trying to find her family. Her journey takes her, Marlin and Nemo to California and to a sanctuary not too far from resembling Sea World. Sigourney Weaver is the brains behind this sanctuary and honestly her name added so many laughs to this film. Dory enters the fish sanctuary in hope of finding her parents and of course, laughs and heartwarming scenes follow as this little blue fish finally realises how amazing she truly is.
I loved this movie. Baby Dory is the cutest little animation I’ve ever seen and the storyline really holds up even though it could easily be compared to the original Finding Nemo. The new characters added in all had their own little quirks and personalities that added a lot to the storyline and, of course, laughter to the audience. My personal favourite was Bailey the beluga whale and Gerald the very simple seal.
The story had a wonderful moral accompanying it. From Dory’s forgetfulness to Bailey’s bashed head and Destiny’s short sight the movie really taught us that no matter our limitations, if we believe in ourselves, we can do anything. I do believe that is a moral that both children and adults need to hear in their lives.
The short film Piper accompanied this movie as well and it was just adorable! I’d be happy to do a full review of that too if you’d like!
What do you think of Finding Dory?
Until next time.
