“Finding Dory”

From the scientific journal Nature, a preview:

Finding Dory”, movie

Director: Andrew Stanton

Opens 17 June 2016

Digital-animation giant Pixar releases the much-anticipated follow-up to its 2003 “Finding Nemo”, a film so successful that clownfish are now often referred to as ‘nemos’. The original had marine biologists in raptures over its faithfulness to the science. Pixar has a mixed record when it comes to sequels, but if “Finding Dory”, featuring Nemo’s Paracantharus friend [pictured in original article], can combine the remarkable accuracy with the superb storytelling that the company is capable of, it could join Pixar’s list of Oscar-botherers. Rumours suggest that the film was rewritten after the success of “Blackfish”, the 2013 documentary by director Gabriela Cowperthwaite that criticized the controversial keeping of killer whales in captivity.
