If You Loved Finding Nemo, You Will Adore Finding Dory

Disclaimer: I was shown the first 30 minutes of the film at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. They paid for my hotel and some of my meals. I had a great time but all opinions, thoughts or memories are entirely my own!

Are their any parents or grandparents who haven’t watched Finding Nemo at least 30 times? I’m not sure how many times I’ve viewed it, but often enough that I can quote many of the lines by heart.  In fact, when I have a hard day you can hear me mumbling to myself, “Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.”

Getting Lost

How many of us can identify with Nemo’s dad when he realizes Nemo is lost?

I was with my sister-in-law once at Walmart and her oldest son, who was about 3 at the time, disappeared. We had that store on lock down in no time and were running up and down the aisles like mad women. We found my nephew unharmed and very unaware as to what a fuss he had caused. He was standing completely still (which was unusual for him) enthralled with a country music group who were performing on television.

Finding Dory

A few weeks ago at Disney Social Media Moms Celebration (#DisneySMMC) we were privileged to view the first 30 minutes of Finding Dory. The movie is obviously centered around Dory, which makes me very happy. I loved Dory just as much if not more than I loved Nemo in Finding Nemo. She was that appealing to me.

Maybe it’s because we are both ditzy. (I lost my cell phone last night and when I called it to find it my refrigerator started ringing) Or maybe I love her because she is so trusting, kind and funny. Whatever the reason is I had no doubt I was going to like the movie, but I didn’t just like it. I loved it.


Granted we only got to see 30 minutes, but within that half hour Dory reached out, grabbed me with her fin sand pulled me in deep!

There are familiar characters you will love seeing again, and fun new characters that will quickly capture your heart. But the star of the show is adorable Dory and if the rest of the movie is as entertaining as the first 30 minutes, you are in for a treat.

I can hardly wait until June 17th to take my grandchildren to see the movie. I expect the oldest (11 years old) and the 3 and 4 year olds will love it. Until then I guess I’ll “Just Keep Swimming.”
