Movie sequels seem to be the order of the day and ‘Finding Dory’ comes 13 years after the delightful Academy Award®–winning (Best Animated Feature, 2003) ‘Finding Nemo’. The sharp colour and sound effects make it a very satisfying experience to watch for the whole family. Dory is the blue tang fish living happily with her parents Charlie and Jenny who are extremely protective of her. They guide her at every move she makes and also help her overcome the short-term memory loss with which she was born with. One day she gets separated from her parents. In the large ocean, she asks around for help in finding her parents, but everyone looks away. We fast-forward to the events of the original film, when Dory crosses paths with the clownfish Marlin (Albert Brooks) looking for his missing son.
A year after the father and son's reunion, Dory has become the favorite of all the marine life swimming around her. She suddenly starts remembering pieces of her childhood and her parents. She decides to look for them in California and roams around the shoreline only to be captured in the Marine Life Institute whose motto is "Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Release."
At the Institute, Dory makes friends in Hank, an octopus, who agrees to help Dory look for her parents in exchange for the tag she has on her fin that grants transport to a facility in Cleveland. There's also the whale shark Destiny and her neighbor Bailey a beluga whale, who through echolocation helps Dory.
But suddenly Marlin and his son who are looking for Dory are captured by the Marine Life Institute. With all of Dory’s friends at the institute, will Dory ever find her parents?
Louis Armstrong’s What a wonderful world, played when Hank the octopus drove the truck into the sea, is good fun. The end credits roll to a cover of Nat King Cole's Unforgettable sung by Sia.
There’s also ‘Piper’ a short film as bonus feature.
