The Five W's of Disney Pixar's Finding Dory

WHAT is this film about?

     Disney/Pixar's Finding Dory welcomes back to the big screen everyone's favorite forgetful blue tang Dory, who’s living happily in the reef with Nemo and Marlin. When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California's prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium. In an effort to find her mom and dad, Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank, a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey, a beluga whale who is convinced his echolocation skills are on the fritz; and Destiny, a nearsighted whale shark. Deftly navigating the complex inner workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships, and family. - Pixar Wiki

WHY should you see this film?

     If you watched Finding Nemo, you should watch this film.   Pixar fans (and Ellen) have been waiting 12 years for a sequel to Finding Nemo.   Ellen pushed for a sequel because she loves the character of Dory.   Since Ellen approves of what's been made, it's bound to be a marvelous film.
