We will never ever be able to repay Disney/Pixar for what they have given us this time. They’ve broken our hearts countless times (is it just us or is everyone still crying at “So long, partner?”), they’ve sent us into uncontrollable fits of laughter (she really can speak whale!) and we thought they had given us the cutest thing ever when we saw kindergarten-aged Mike Wazowski in Monsters University. Well, that was until we saw Baby Dory.
Just look at that perfect little bubble of happiness! She’s got that adorable belly laugh, and how precious is her mispronunciation of “memory,” just like Nemo and “anemone”? Was there an actual plot to Finding Dory? We’re not sure because we were so busy thinking about Baby Dory and how she adorably chirps “okay, Daddy.” We just want to reach into the screen and give her a (very gentle) squeeze. Are they going to be making Baby Dory stuffies? Because we want 50.
So from now on the cures to a bad day, a broken heart and global warming (probably) are all Baby Dory. Baby Dory is life.
See her and her adult counterpart in Finding Dory, in theatres now.
