Last weekend we were lucky enough to be treated to an advanced screening of the new Pixar film Finding Dory ! It’s been 13 years since Finding Nemo was released so this sequel has been a long time coming… and well worth the wait!
It seems like only yesterday I took my two and four-year-old to see Finding Nemo and now they are 15 and 17! Time flies when you measure it against your kids’ growing up. This time around I have another four-year-old to take along and I got to introduce Tully to Nemo, Marlin and Dory on the big screen! Finding Nemo is a firm DVD favourite in our house and the excitement has been building (primarily thanks to Tully’s YouTube addiction!)
So… was it worth waiting for and all this fuss? YES! 100% yes. I may go as far as to say I enjoyed it even more that the original. There are fantastic and hilarious new characters such as Destiny the whale shark (Tully’s favourite), voiced by Kaitlin Olsen, and Bailey the beluga whale and Hank the octopus, who are voiced by Modern Family stars Ty Burrell and Ed O’Neill. Idris Elba as a sea lion was definitely a favourite for me.
Pixar does what they do best. you’ll laugh until you realize you’re actually shedding a little tear as well (I for one can’t sit through Toy Story 3 without becoming a sobbing mess!)
Here are a few questions you might want answered before you see it:
Is it scary? No, not really. There are a few moment of tension but all in all, it’s pretty tame in that aspect. Definitely more funny than scary.
What age does it suit? I took Tully who is 4, my nephew Mylo who is 2 and my 15-year-old and they all loved it equally. It was Mylo’s first film and he was good as gold the whole way through. He even wore his 3D glasses!
Are all our favourite characters back? We see Marlin, Nemo, Dory, Mr Ray and the turtles plus meet a bunch of hilarious new friends!
3D or 2D? If you are going with little kids I would stay stick with 2D. Tully watched the whole thing a bit blurry because she wouldn’t wear the glasses. If the kids are a bit older the 3D experience is very impressive. It’s like your part of the underwater adventure!
