Disney/Pixar's “Finding Nemo” returns to the big screen—for the first time ever in thrilling Disney Digital 3D™—introducing a whole new generation to the stunning underwater adventure. Director Andrew Stanton, a two-time Oscar® winner for “Finding Nemo” and 2008’s “WALL•E,” says that the 3D version of the film is breathtaking—literally. “Watching the first few scenes from ‘Finding Nemo’ in 3D was like I’d never seen a 3D movie before,” says Stanton. “It took my breath away. It felt like I was more underwater. It makes the scary moments scarier. It makes the beautiful moments more beautiful. It really drops you deeper into the story. It just amplifies everything.”
Teeming with memorable comedic characters and heartfelt emotion, “Finding Nemo” follows the momentous journey of an overprotective clownfish named Marlin and his young son Nemo––who become separated when Nemo is unexpectedly taken far from his ocean home in the Great Barrier Reef to a fish tank in a dentist’s office. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory, a friendly-but-forgetful blue tang, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic journey to rescue his son––who hatches a few daring plans of his own to return safely home.
“Finding Nemo” won the 2003 Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature; the film was nominated for three additional Oscars (Best Original Screenplay; Best Original Score; Best Sound Editing). It was also nominated for a Golden Globe® Award for Best Motion Picture–Comedy or Musical. In 2008, the American Film Institute named “Finding Nemo” among the top 10 greatest animated films ever made. At the time of its release, “Finding Nemo” was the highest grossing G-rated movie of all time.
It remains the fifth highest grossing animated film worldwide.
“‘Finding Nemo’ was an amazing film to work on and it exceeded our expectations at every step of the process,” says producer Graham Walters. “Throughout the production, people on the crew would walk into the dailies and be blown away by what they were seeing.”
With an Oscar®-nominated screenplay by Stanton, Bob Peterson and David Reynolds, “Finding Nemo” is co-directed by Lee Unkrich, who went on to direct the Oscar® -winning “Toy Story 3.” John Lasseter is the executive producer. Award-winning composer Thomas Newman (“The Help,” “WALL•E”) contributed an exciting and sophisticated score that earned him an Oscar® nomination, among other nominations and awards.
“‘Finding Nemo’ is the perfect movie in 3D,” says Lasseter, who creatively oversees all films and associated projects from Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. “We didn’t realize it when we made it originally. Every scene has what we call particulate matter in the water to give it a sense of place. When you see that in 3D, it’s unbelievable. There’s so much depth. From the layers and layers of coral reef to the rows of teeth in Bruce the shark’s mouth, it’s absolutely amazing.”
Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Internationl, “Finding Nemo” will be released across the Philippines in Digital 3D™ for a limited theatrical engagement starting December 5.
