   The movie we have been waiting on for 13 years has finally hit theaters. “Finding Dory” is the sequel to the 2003 Oscar-Winning film, “Finding Nemo.”
The movie brings joy to all ages for the great characters and amazing story. It is filled with humor, exciting moments, and a touching storyline. It also will bring a smile to your face to see your favorite characters from the original film such as Ellen Degeneres as Dory, Albert Brooks as Marlin, and one of my personal favorites, Andrew Stanton as Crush the sea turtle. As well as the old characters, there are great new characters introduced in the film. One new character who helps Dory on her journey is Hank, played by Ed O”Neill who also plays Jay Pritchett on the ABC comedy series “Modern Family.” Ed’s co-star Ty Burrell plays Bailey in “Finding Dory.”
   Taking place one year after Nemo’s return, Dory struggles to find her family by going through unpredictable obstacles and finding new ways to get to them. She makes new friends and reunites with old ones to get all the help she could to get to her mom and dad. The film appeals to all ages because of its joyful humor. Also every toddler and little kid that went to see the original “Finding Nemo” is now either in high school or college, and would highly enjoy seeing the sequel to a movie that they remember seeing at such a young age. Mom and Dad would love it as well especially if they were the one taking that child to see “Finding Nemo.” The film is an epic adventure with elements that appeal to many generations.
