What if Sebastian a Crab has been wrong all this time? “Darling, it’s improved / down where it’s wetter”, he memorably crooned in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, behind in 1989. But in Finding Dory, a new film from Pixar Animation Studios, a universe underneath a sea is no alcove of bliss.
Eerily beautiful, yes: kelp forests, high as skyscrapers, hook and gaunt in a current, while bioluminescent hulk squid slip like ghosts around a disadvantage of fallen trawlers. But for a small fish mislaid in a biggest pool of all, it’s daunting.
That fish is Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), a splendid blue royal spice whose determined short-term memory detriment done her such an ironically memorable comic sidekick in Finding Nemo, a 2003 Pixar classical to that this film serves as an suddenly inventive and stirring sequel. When we accommodate Dory here, she’s a mislaid child, seeking passers-by to assistance locate her kind-eyed relatives (Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy), whom she remembers vividly in flashback, though has no thought how to locate.
