Finding Dory (2016) – 4.5/5

It is needless to say Pixar has succeeded once again at creating a gorgeous animated world, but most importantly, is the magic behind every Pixar story which never, ever, fails to make us feel every kind of emotion. Pixar never ceases to amaze, and Finding Dory is not the exception.

Without revealing one of the most pleasant surprises of this movie, Finding Dory starts out in an enchanting way and steals your heart right from the beginning. It is truly a beautiful thing when trailers do not reveal the heart of the story. Audiences will get to genuinely enjoy this delightful surprise.. I did.  The story as a whole is unique and feels original. Towards the end the film moves unbelievable fast, as if to shorten the running time of the film, but it turns into something amusing, exciting, and fun, and goes by almost unnoticed.

We also see the true value of choosing the right voices and creating the perfect characterization in a movie, because this film has achieved every aspect of that flawlessly. Ellen DeGeneres is only one of the many voices that makes this journey engaging and magical for kids and adults alike.

Finding Dory lives up to the original. While the titles are quite similar, the films cannot possibly be compared. It is a beautiful tale about the value of family, that teaches something slightly different from its prequel, Finding Nemo. Director Andrew Stranton delivers and directs a sequel that could have easily fallen into using cliched melancholy themes, but instead creates something entirely different, attractive, humorous, and simply lovable.
