This will be plenty good and all cuz Pixar does good work, but i’m not gonna let it go unsaid that Finding Nemo is the 2nd most overrated Pixar movie after Monsters Inc. The only one thats worse than either of them is Cars. and what do all 3 have in common? Sequels for erry one. Why? For what they lack in story-telling, Nemo has awesome visuals, Monsters has unique characters and Cars has marketable toys.
I havent seen Cars 2, but am going to venture a guess that its garbage – same with Monsters “The Lame Prequel” – and this Nemo thing…it’ll be okay. not great. but okay.
The 3 Toy Story’s were solid. Want to continue that trend? Hit us with an interesting A Bugs Life sequel. Wanna REALLY please us? Give the world what it wants: less talking cars and fish & make The Incredibles a trilogy. Do it. and win…
Here’s part of the press release from Disney:
“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time,” said DeGeneres. “I’m not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating ‘Toy Story 16.’ But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It’s got a lot of heart, it’s really funny, and the best part is—it’s got a lot more Dory.”
Director and Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton takes audiences back to the extraordinary underwater world created in the original film. “There is no Dory without Ellen,” said Stanton. “She won the hearts of moviegoers all over the world—not to mention our team here at Pixar. One thing we couldn’t stop thinking about was why she was all alone in the ocean on the day she met Marlin. In ‘Finding Dory,’ she will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way.”
According to Stanton, “Finding Dory” takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.
