Your favourite underwater characters return in Pixar’s long-awaited sequel to their 2003 masterpiece, Finding Nemo.
One year after the events of Finding Nemo, clownfish Marlin (Albert Brooks) is happily settled having rescued his son. But Marlin’s forgetful friend Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) starts to recall memories of her long-lost family. She then determines to embark on an epic adventure across the breadth of the ocean to find them, accompanied as before by Marlin and Nemo. But when she’s captured and placed in the Monterey Marine Life Institute, she must devise a plan of escape.
Pixar’s Oscar-winning Finding Nemo is widely regarded as one of their finest films and this eagerly anticipated sequel plunges us back into an extraordinarily beautiful aquatic world. Among the delightful new characters are octopus Hank (Ed O’Neill), whale shark Destiny (Kaitlyn Olson) and a pair of laid back sea lions voiced by The Wire stars Idris Elba and Dominic West.
