    Finding Dory

    Next only to Incredibles 2, this has to be one of the most anticipated animated sequels in quite some time, for reasons I'm not entirely sure of? Ellen DeGeneres and her fans I guess.



    I like Finding Nemo, but it's not high on my Pixar list. I don't think it warranted a sequel but the story looks decent enough. The opener definitely guarantees some maudlin stuff, which is expected, and also as expected the rest of the teaser is just three rehashed "Dory doesn't remember stuff too good" jokes that sound like outtakes from the first movie.

    Not holding that against this movie at all, because, again, that's the expected target Disney is trying to hit with the teaser. Kind of like the "Inside Out" teaser making people nostalgic for original Pixar movies coming back more than anything else. I'm remaining optimistic that the first full trailer will show a pretty darn good looking film.

    (although the updated undersea backgrounds are kind of underwhelming when you think about the time gap and how far tech has evolved, but whatever)

    Jokewise, it might work.
    But the story... doesn't seem that interesting at all.
    "Oh no, how will Dory find her family?????"

    Meh.

    "How will Marlin find his son?????"

    ...yeah, what a blase plot. Totally uninteresting. No way it'll do well and spawn a sequel. It's like I can't even fathom the idea of execution.

    ever since I first saw finding nemo I've loved it and it's probably at the top of my Pixar list to be honest.

    pretty excited for this. humor-wise I'm not worried, but who knows about the plot

    Ryan, you henhead! You don't get my point.
    I'm saying it's bad idea for a sequel to this particular movie, not a bad idea in general.

    but why? it's obviously connected to the original and seems like a natural plot

    I mostly agree with the original post. Finding Nemo is a very solid film, but it's kind of around the middle/lower end of my Pixar rankings. I'm open to a sequel and I expect it to be on the same level as Monsters University--entertaining and creative enough, but not quite magical. We'll see.

    The trailer looks decent. I'm okay with the more sentimental tone, since relatively few animated movies tend to go that route with their trailers. They're almost entirely comedy-based.

    Always enjoy a good round of horrible people calling each other out.

    Anyway, trailer was meh. I'm sure the movie will be decent, and may get more attention when more plot info is revealed. Hope Dory's memory joke doesn't get used too much outside of the trailer. Joke was done fine enough in the first film, hope they don't run it into the ground with this one.
    Just because I'm stupider than them, they think they're smarter than me!

    Liked Nemo a lot (though rewatches get less and less exciting) so I'll definitely check this out. Dory was such a cute character and Degeneres did a great job. Wasn't exactly clamoring to see her again but I'd love for Dory to find her family, and it'll just be neat to see her interacting with Marlin again as well as Nemo.

    You mean Cars 2 (Planes was never a Pixar movie).

    For me, I'm rather skeptical of The Good Dinosaur since it looked a bit too Dreamworks-ish in its style, and the design for the main dinosaur seems too uncreative for me.

    Wow, that trailer did not sell me on this film at all. I'm not expecting much from this.

    Yeah. Most animated teasers are released during production, so there's a good chance they are using test clips or the earliest completed footages for the teaser. Someone (nicely) made a compilation of all the Pixar teaser trailers and you'll notice a lot of clips that are irrelevant to the actual plot, simply because they are basically animation tests. I can't really blame the marketing department for making these trailers since they're only working with what they have.

    the trailer is decent but it seems a little too samey for my liking. i'm hoping the movie isn't just chock full of dory jokes from the first that have been recycled, but we'll see in due time. i'm really looking forward to this otherwise.

    I actually think this looks pretty good and it could be one of the better sequels that Pixar has spawned. I'm probably more optimistic about this than some people is because Finding Nemo is my favorite animated movie of all time and as a kid I would talk about wanting a sequel to this movie quite a bit, so it looks like my inner child's wish is coming true. I'm not expecting this to be anywhere near as good as the first one, but I think it will be good in it's own right. Also this is just a nitpick, but does anyone else think that Crush's voice sounds a bit off?

    Both trailers have not been very good. That said, it probably won't be terrible. It could be decent or maybe even good. The trailer really makes it looks like Finding Nemo 2: Finding Dory though with them basically saying it's the same story but with Dory, which I don't like. I've also heard the Fish Tank crew will be back, which is nice but makes it sound even more like pretty much a carbon copy.

    Hell, I remember talking about "Finding Dory" as a joke when I was younger. There was no way I ever thought that would come to fruition for real.

    I'm still not stoked for this movie, I'm sick to death of great movies getting sudden sequels. Toy Story 4 is in the making as well. Come on Pixar, make an original movie I want to see! (Which is not The Good Dinosaur, never cared to go see it)

    What if I were to tell you, OSS, that they made another original film last year as well that was one of the highest grossing films last year? Or that Pixar is doing an original film next year?

    As for this... yeah it's pseudo-rehash but I'll wait and see.
