Like it or not, Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” is now culturally entwined with our hobby and if the rumors on the movies sequel “Finding Dory” are true, it is about to get even more entwined. Read on if you chose.
We all have heard it before when you explain you have a saltwater aquarium, “So you have a Nemo?” or if people see you have a Blue Tang immediately refer to it as “Dory.” If you recall, Dory (voice of Ellen Degeneres) is the sidekick with the bad memory from the original movie. In this one, Dory tries to discover her past and gain back her memory.
In a new interview from Brazil, Pixar President Jim Morris revealed that the bulk of the movie won’t take place in the ocean.
According to what we’ve read, the story line goes like this. Dory (DeGeneres) is living with Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo on their reef a few months after the first film. After a school trip with Nemo, Dory gets some memories are triggered that lead them all on the adventure to find her family.
But what about the movie if it isn’t in the ocean? A big chunk of the movie actually will take place at the “Marine Biology Institute of California.” This is a rehabilitation complex for marine and aquarium life. And this is where Dory learns she was born and raised at the MBIC and was released back into the ocean as a youngster.
We are still a long way out from when Finding Dory premiers on June 17, 2016, but it is interesting to learn more about the movie.
