Fans of Finding Nemo will be so happy to see the sequel Finding Dory, released 13 years after the original movie! My eldest was a big fan of Finding Nemo when he was younger, and I had really enjoyed the orginal Finding Nemo movie myself so of course we were all excited to see Finding Dory.
Since Dory was such a popular character in the Finding Nemo movie, Finding Dory tells the story of this character in more depth – with flashbacks to Dory’s childhood (which are soooo cute! I loved baby Dory) to show how Dory had got lost from her family, and then due to her problems with short term memory loss had forgotten all about where she came from and who she had lost. During Finding Dory, she starts to get some brief memories back, and goes on a quest to track down her long lost parents and get reunited with them – with help from Nemo and his dad Marlin.
Finding Dory is a really sweet movie, which has less scary bits than Finding Nemo (no sharks!) so I would definitely recommend it even for very young cinema go-ers. My three boys age 4, 6 and 8 all enjoyed it, it’s a lovely movie for the whole family.
Linking in with the new Finding Dory movie, Disney, Change4Life and the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) have launched a #JustKeepMoving campaign. Change4Life have plenty of ideas to help keep kids active for the recommend 60 minutes per day. They’ve created some Finding Dory themed 10 Minute Shake Ups, and Disney and the ASA are offering Finding Dory inspired swim sessions.
