The opening sequence of Pixar’s Up is considered as the saddest in the history of animated films. However, the upcoming Finding Dory may surpass its colleague, judging by the first 27 minutes Walt Disney Studios decided to showcase at CinemaCon 2016. The opening sequence also highlighted the plot to take place around Morro Bay, California.
It was specifically asked by Dave Hollis, executive vice president of distribution for Walt Disney to keep the opening a top secret and not to reveal it to the audiences. Director Andrew Stanton also asked not to ruin any plot points for the general public, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.
However, something which can be shared to our readers is that the opening sequence of Finding Dory will be “one of the nicest surprises” for the fans. The segment was showcased before the screening of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
Despite Andrew Stanton specifically asking the audience not to reveal plot points, Yahoo reporter Kevin Polowy was present at the event and revealed what he saw. However, it was spoiler free.
“The segment we saw was enchanting, hilarious, adorable, and heartfelt – and has moment that had this reporter welling ip in the first five minutes, not unlike the tear-jerking sequence in Up a few years back.” Polowy said, as reported by Yahoo News.
Speaking on how he came forward with the idea of Finding Dory, Stanton said that he never had the idea of a sequel in mind until he saw Finding Nemo in 3-D. He revealed that he grew a concern for Dory and worried of her getting lost again. This made him pursue the film for the last four years.
The movie features the voices of Albert Brooks (Marlin), Ellen DeGeneres (Dory) and new inductees in the form of Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy (Dory’s parents Charlie and Jenny). The plot of the movie is set six months after the events of the first film.
