Have you ever been told that you were going to be the FIRST AUDIENCE to ever see a movie? I have! This past weekend during the Disney Social Media Moms Conference we were surprised to find out that we were going to be the first to see FINDING DORY!! We were all crazy excited but then… we were crushed. We would only see the first 33 minutes. How’s that for sad? Don’t worry, though, that’s all we needed to see to be able to fall in love with that adorable blue fish even more.
Dory, played by Ellen Degeneres in Finding Dory and its predecessor, has a bit of a tragic story due to her short-term memory loss. Have you ever noticed something extra special about Dory though? She does not notice or bring up a single flaw that anyone else around her has… except for herself. She is always apologizing for her STML. Why is that? Well, that’s the question the director had after 13 years. Producer Lindsey Collins told us that through the years many went to Andrew Stanton, director of Finding Nemo, to ask about his thoughts on a sequel to Nemo. He believed Nemo’s story was complete and did not feel it was necessary. Then one day, he thought about Dory and it made him sad to think about her and how we’d remember her. From that point on, he knew Dory needed an explanation.
Watching the first half an hour of the film was magical and yes, I even cried. It was so heartwarming to see Dory on the screen again in all her amazing optimistic and life-loving glory. It was truly magical to see it all come together. I will not spill one single bean but I will tell you the tale is epic and Pixar worked their magic once again (as if we didn’t know that would happen) to tell the story of Dory in an amazing way.
You will not want to miss the June 17th release of the film!
