2003’s Finding Nemo is one of the biggest animated movies of this decade, with a recent 3D reboot and an allotted slot next to Toy Story and Ice Age. So why not make it a franchise? That’s Pixar’s savvy thinking nine years later.
A sequel has been projected for a 2016 release, with Ellen DeGeneres in talks to reprise the role of Dory. Social media venue and platform for average America to express its opinion, Twitter, has a lot to say about this.
“Apparently there’s going to be an actual Finding Nemo sequel… is he going to get lost again?” Says @Kimberlychan, one of hundreds of surprised Tweeters wondering what would even go on in a follow-up.
Look kids, I’m sure Disney will come up with a completely legitimate explanation for the bug-eyed kid from Weeds to disappear again. There are parody posters depicting the Gulf Coast oil spill, perhaps that isn’t such a bad idea? At least it’s topical.
I will wait until it comes out on DVD (if I’m not in a carpel tunnel research facility by then), watching g-rated movies in the theater is quite embarrassing, not to mention annoying, for childless 27-year-olds.
