Elled DeGeneres Suggests That “Finding Dory” Is Not Just A Sequel, It’s A Statement!

The upcoming movie “Finding Dory” is more than just a sequel.  It is a statement. Actress Ellen DeGeneres gave the skinny during the recently concluded D23 EXPO in Anaheim, California. Read on for more details.

In an interview with Yahoo News, DeGeneres disclosed that fishes (or any marine life as a whole) belong in the ocean and it is our duty to take care of their habitat.


“It’s what this whole sequel is about,” DeGeneres pointed out, “It’s about rehabilitation and putting them back in the ocean.”

The animated movie may have dropped anchor that is in a more serious note than its 2003 predecessor “Finding Nemo.” Notably because of a narrative that compels the blue tang fish to seek out her parents and which traces her early beginnings.

In the process, Dory again becomes estranged with Marlin and his son Nemo. However, he manages to find her way inside a marine sanctuary. The biological refuge houses a variety of injured aquatic life that includes a bad-tempered octopus (Ed O’Neill).

It has been insinuated that the Disney Pixar endeavor was guided by the somber tone of Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s 2013 documentary film about a penned Sea World orca as reported by Ecorazzi late last year.

The outlet reported that Tilikum the killer whale has laid claim to the lives of his trainers in his a span of 30 years of his confinement. It was said that the long-established practice of being kept in an inadequate haven results to dorsal fin collapse, no stimulation  and limited exercise triggering a fatal behavior to the orcas.

Despite this pitch-black awakening that the movie wants to convey against the SeaWorld theme park, the creators made sure that it added more vibrant characters that will be splashing their way for the sequel. Bailey (Ty Burrell), who is a stone-walled cetacean, is Dory’s adopted filter-feeding big sister Destiny (Kaitlin Olsen)  and Dory’s parents portrayed by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.
