DH Reviews Finding Dory.

Updated on September 21, 2016

I have always been a huge fan of Finding Nemo. So when I heard about the new sequel, Finding Dory, I was extremely thrilled and could not wait to go watch it. I went into this movie with high expectations because Disney and Pixar are known for their emotional story lines and excellent cast lists. I was definitely not disappointed. Pixar has once again created a beautiful masterpiece that is just as good as, if not better than, its original movie Finding Nemo. The kids have been watching Finding Nemo nonstop ever since they received a stuffed Nemo toy from the Disney store when they took a trip to Disney World. I am so glad that my cousin took me to see Finding Dory. I can't wait to show it to the children when it comes out on DVD.

The voice actors were incredible and really brought their characters to life. It was so nice to hear Ellen DeGeneres as the always forgetful and hilarious Dory, screaming and cracking jokes on the big screen once again. I was also thrilled to find out that Ty Burrell, the funny over dramatic dad from Modern Family, was playing the part of Bailey, the sensitive Beluga Whale who over reacts about every little thing. I also learned a fun fact from my cousin that she found out when she was watching Ellen DeGeneres's talk show. She told me that Ed O'Neill, the guy who voiced the cranky Septopus, didn't realize that his character would have so much screen time. He just thought that he would be playing a random and probably meaningless part in the film but as it turned out he was wrong.

Hank, my favorite character, plays a major part in this movie. He not only helps Dory walk through her past in order to find her parents, he also brings an even more emotional story to the table. Hank, the septopus who used to be an octopus, isn't as determined to get back into the ocean as you would think. It is to be assumed that he lost a leg in the wild and that is why he was brought into captivity. It makes sense because Hank and Dory met each other in the quarantine section of the Marine Life Institute where their motto is to "rescue, rehabilitate, and release" hurt and sick marine animals. However, Hank does not want to be released back into the ocean since he has such terrible memories from the past which took place out there in the deep blue sea. He would rather take Dory's tag and be sent to another, more permanent, tank where he can live the rest of his life in a nice and safe environment where nothing bad could ever happen to him again.

If you watched this movie, did you think it was just as good as Finding Nemo?

Finding Dory, much like Finding Nemo, tackles major and often difficult subjects to discuss with children or perhaps anyone. First of all, this film explores the heartbreak of separation from one's family and loved ones. Dory was separated from her parents long before she met Marlin and helped him save his son, Nemo. She then gets separated from her friends while searching for her family. However, the real meaning behind this beautiful movie is the title. Dory is trying to find herself by finding where she comes from and if her parents are still alive.

The biggest thing this movie brings to the table is how mental disabilities and emotional trauma can effect yourself and the people around you. I could really relate to some of the characters and I actually cried while watching this in the theatre. I have Autism so certain scenes involving Dory and Hank really resonated with me.

      I haven't watched this movie yet because I kept thinking that the plot would be the same as Finding Nemo. Now that I've read your hub, I see it's different. Dory is out to find herself. Can't wait to see it. Great hubbing, DHakaAJ!
