We know when we hear those first few notes of that Finding Nemo theme (you know the one), there are some feels a-coming. It’s how that emotional and hilarious roller-coaster of a movie, Finding Nemo started and it looks like its sequel will be delivering the same thing. Somehow, Disney/Pixar possess the artistic ability to make the entire planet care deeply for a gang of CGI fish. Thanks, guys, now we’re crying.
It seems the new movie will be tugging on our heartstrings just as hard as the last time. Remember when we signed up for a cute cartoon about adventuring fish and ended up with a story about a parent-child relationship, a forgetful fish just looking for someone to care about her and the tribulations of growing up? Yeah, we’re still crying at Dory’s tearful line: ‘I look at you and I’m home.’ And judging by this new trailer, this movie is nothing different.
In the first 30 seconds, we’ve already seen baby Dory (so adorable!) searching for her parents and adult Dory getting kidnapped by humans (sound familiar?). Didn’t we learn anything from the first movie? DON’T TAKE FISH FROM THE OCEAN. THEY HAVE FAMILIES.
With some new characters like a stealthy octopus and a clumsy whale shark, it looks like Finding Dory will feature boat-loads of signature Pixar laughs too. And thank goodness, ’cause we’re going to need it! Especially when said laughs are intermixed with lines like Nemo’s ‘Does this mean we have to say goodbye to Dory?’ Oh the feels!
This movie looks like it’s going to be everything we’ve been waiting for (and then some). And we can assume it’s absolutely amazing because Pixar has spent 13 years perfecting it! Historically, when Pixar takes more than a decade to give us a sequel, it’s pretty darn good (we’re looking at you, Toy Story 3 and Monsters University).
Finding Dory swims into theatres on June 17th.
