Walt Disney Studios and Pixar are producing a ton of new films this year, both live action and animated, and our family cannot wait to see them all! Obviously, we’ll have to screen some of the live action ones to see how age appropriate they are for the girls, but we will definitely be seeing all of the new animated films coming out this year! One of the most highly anticipated films for our family is “Finding Dory.” Here’s a little bit of background on the story:
Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks) and Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence). 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 (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), 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.
If you loved the heartwarming, engaging “Finding Nemo,” I can only imagine how much you’re going to love “Finding Dory.” We’ve got a couple months to go before Dory and the gang swim into theaters, so why not get everyone in your house excited about this film with some awesome family activities?
We are starting to work on a few school skills since kindergarten is coming quickly upon us, and what better way to work on those skills than with some fun activity pages!
