Disney Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” dove into homes this month in breathtaking Disney Blu-ray Digital 3D™. The must-“sea,” must-own Oscar®-winning underwater adventure—featuring the unforgettable Marlin, his forgetful friend Dory and the lovable young Nemo.
In this stunning underwater adventure teeming with memorable comedic characters and heartfelt emotion, “Finding Nemo” follows the momentous journey of an overprotective clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) and his young son Nemo (voiced by Alexander Gould). When the two are unexpectedly separated in the Great Barrier Reef, Nemo is carried far from his ocean home and deposited in a fish tank in a dentist’s office. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic effort to rescue his son––who hatches a few daring plans of his own to return safely home.
Directed by Oscar® winner Andrew Stanton, co-directed by Oscar winner Lee Unkrich and produced by Graham Walters, “Finding Nemo” also features the voices of Willem Dafoe (as Gill), Brad Garrett (as Bloat), Allison Janney (as Peach), Austin Pendleton (as Gurgle), Stephen Root (as Bubbles), Vicki Lewis (as Deb/Flo), Joe Ranft (as Jacques) Geoffrey Rush (as Nigel), Elizabeth Perkins (as Coral), Bob Peterson (as Mr. Ray), Barry Humphries (as Bruce), Eric Bana (as Anchor), Bruce Spence (as Chum), and director Andrew Stanton (as Crush).
My family is ridiculously excited about this release! Finding Nemo is a movie we all love and enjoy watching together. It’s pretty close to our all time favorite family film. One we are happy to add to our home collection. The blu-ray features amazing high definition animation and sound, that makes for an incredible at-home experience. It was almost like seeing the movie for the first time. There is also a lot of fun to be had after watching the movie – with a host of interactive features and bonus features including 3D Virtual Aquariums, 2D Virtual Aquariums, CineExplorer, a Filmmaker Roundtable and more. We spent an entire afternoon watching the movie, and enjoying the all of the bonus features.
Any movie that brings my whole family together for an entire afternoon of laughing has for sure earned a spot on my 2012 holiday gift guide!
