After 2 years of waiting, Finding Dory is finally being released on June 17, 2016. The box office prediction for this movie on opening weekend is $117.5, international is $632.6, and worldwide is $1,044.0 million. The basic synopsis for Finding Dory is that it will be focused on the amnesiac character Dory, and will explore the idea of her being reunited with her family. The film will take place six months after the events of Finding Nemo and will be set off the coast of California. Ellen DeGeneres — who voices the character of Dory — first shared the clip Tuesday on her talk show’s website.
Victoria Savoca, a senior at Foran and also a lover of Disney movies, is excited about the upcoming film. Savoca says, “I am so excited about Finding Dory! Finding Nemo is one of my favorite childhood and current movies. Dory definitely has to be my favorite character.”
Finding Nemo was released on May 30, 2003. This is when the seniors at Foran were about 5. They will all be around 17 and 18 years old when Finding Dory will be out in theaters. As many may know, Finding Nemo was about Nemo’s dad, Marlin, searching for him and meeting an unsuspected friend, Dory. After searching for what feels like an eternity, Marlin and Dory eventually find Nemo, they all have been friends ever since.
Sophia Troanska, a sophomore at Foran, believes that Finding Dory will be a positive addition to the Disney collection of movies. Troanska says, “It will bring back childhood memories for those who may not be children anymore. It will renew the “Nemo fervor” for today’s younger generation.” Finding Nemo is expected to be the movie of the year in 2016.
