Who could forget the adorable little clownfish with the different sized fins! In 2003 Disney released FINDING NEMO, a computer animated film that was written and directed by Andrew Stanton. It's cute little plot, along with it's amazing animation scored FINDING NEMO a ton of positive reviews. It's no wonder why this film won Academy Award for Best Animated Feature!
For the first time this film was released in 3-D this past September and was released on Blu-ray on December 4, 2012. I was lucky enough to receive a copy to review with my children. All of my kids are fans of Nemo, so they were all especially excited when the movie arrived.
This fun adventure begins with two clownfish(Marlin and his wife Coral) who get attacked by a barracuda. Sadly Coral gets eaten while Marlin is unconscious. They were trying to protect their nest of eggs that would soon be hatching, but after the attack only one egg is left to hatch and that one egg is Nemo! Unfortunatly Nemo's right fin is affected by the attack, making it smaller than the other and limiting his swimming ability.
Now fast forward to Nemo's very first day of school. Nemo's father accidently ambarasses him which causes Nemo to take off towards a boat where he is captured by scuba divers. He ends up in a fish tank in a dentists office and it's up to his dad to rescue him.
Watch to see an alternative opening!
This is by far a must have item for your child's DVD collection! It would make an excellent Christmas gift or stocking stuffer so be sure to pick up a copy today!!!
