Fantastic fishy animated fun.

A much-anticipated follow-up to Pixar’s delightful 2003 hit Finding Nemo, this beautifully rendered sequel will enthrall, with fans young and old keen to catch up with the adventures of Dory and her undersea friends.

The film picks up six months after Finding Nemo, with warm-hearted amnesiac Dory (again wonderfully voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), suddenly recalling childhood memories specifically about the ‘jewel of Morro Bay’ in California. Accompanied by Nemo (Hayden Rolence) and Nemo’s father Marlin (Albert Brooks), she heads off to try and find her family, and they make their way to the Monterey Marine Life Institute. There they meet Hank (Ed O’Neill) a grumpy octopus who becomes their guide, beluga whale Bailey (Ty Burrell) and whale shark Destiny (Kaitlin Olson).

Director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo) is back guiding the film, with Angus MacLane on board as co-director and a wonderful voice cast that also features Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Willem Dafoe, Idris Elba and Dominic West.

The arrival of a new Pixar film is always a cause for excitement, and this sublime sequel makes for a delightful piece of aquatic animated entertainment. [U]
