13 years passed until a “Finding Nemo” sequel opened in theatres this past weekend. And young and old alike have been going in droves (large “schools” of humans, I guess!!) to see it.
Not only was “Finding Dory” the top movie of the weekend, it’s the highest-grossing animated debut of all time. The movie took in 136.2-million dollars in North America besting the record set in 2007 by “Shrek the Third.” (”Finding Dory“ is also the second-largest June opening of all time, coming up short of ”Jurassic World”.)
Kids who saw the original (now in their teens and 20’s ) are anxious to see it. So are moms and dads who want to relive some of that magic from 2003.
The verdict? Two “fins” up – – it’s awesome!! This character is stealing hearts especially – – Baby Dory. Have a look and see why:
Oh…and stick around when the credits are rolling. There’s a scene afterwards – – a follow-up to something that happened in the original “Finding Nemo” (I won’t say anymore to spoil it!!).
