You know the story. I am one busy woman who wears multiple hats – wife, mother, full-time employee and blogger. There are times when I enlist the help of other like-minded contributors to guest post on my blog. My goal is to deliver the best entertainment and lifestyle stories that provides positive insight and inspiration. While I’m working hard to research and deliver the best content behind the scenes, I have invited guest blogger, One Tuf Cookie, to share some of her “crumbles” with you about the most anticipated animated movie of the year – ‘Finding Dory!’
Guess who’s happier than a kid in a candy store? Me! Just in time for summer, Finding Dory is hitting theaters June 17 and I am so there! Disney and Pixar have teamed up once again, this time for the long awaited sequel of Finding Nemo (2003, yes seriously-that long ago).
Finding Nemo was an Academy Award winning animated film about a little clown fish named “Nemo” that got lost and the quest to find him. The adventurous journey was super cute with lots of fun characters but mainly Nemo’s dad, Marlin (Albert Brooks) and another forgetful little fish named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) that insisted on tagging along. This time, Dory’s the star of the movie and that alone promises for a fun time!
In Finding Dory, Dory (infamous for forgetting everything) actually remembered that she has a family and her faithful friends join her in a new found calling to find them. Not only are the uber-talented Diane Keaton (as Jenny) and Ed O’Neill (as Hank) cast in the movie, but (brace yourself ladies) Idris Elba has a role in the movie as “Fluke” [hubba, hubba is right!] Faves like “Crush” (the super hip Sea turtle) and “Squirt” make a comeback and new characters are introduced, like “Destiny,” the whale shark (Kaitlin Olson), “Bailey” the beluga whale and a few others. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out. I’m excited! I think it’s going to be a fun movie, and in the meantime, I’m surely gonna refresh my kids’ memory of the original story… so family movie night is in full effect!
