So I wasn’t going to do a review to the Finding Dory teaser trailer released today but after some rest felt well enough to put out a few thoughts. If you haven’t subscribed to my channel I’d really appreciate it and if you like the video please give it a thumbs up. Thanks!
Basically the trailer is more of a clip than a regular trailer. It gives us a scene with Nemo finding Dory sleep-swimming because she is remembering her parents. One of the interesting things is that clearly Finding Dory is going to take place very soon after Finding Nemo because Nemo is still little in this film. That surprises me a bit but it makes sense when you think of all the stimulation Dory received while looking for Nemo. She was able to remember details like PT Sherman and so perhaps her brain is remembering lots of things it had forgotten.
There is a little side of me that is nervous about this film. It’s just a worry that side characters like the recent Minions can’t uphold their as the lead to their own movie. Now I think the team behind Finding Dory is a milion times stronger than Minions but there’s still that worry.
However, I am mostly excited to see Marlin, Nemo and Dory back in the ocean on an adventure. I love the oceanscapes of Finding Nemo and can’t wait to see how beautiful the ocean looks again. The cast they have on board looks great including returning favorites like Ellen Degeneres, Albert Brooks and William Defoe. And we have new characters voiced by Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Ty Burrell and Ed O’Neil. Andrew Stanton is back directing and writing (a lot of people forget that Nemo was nominated for Best Screenplay not just Animated Feature Film). So, hard to not get excited about such talent involved on every aspect of this film.
Really I think the trailer was more for people outside Disney and Pixar fandom who aren’t aware of the project and to just introduce to them that the Finding Dory is coming next June.
What did you think of the trailer?
