Unlike in Finding Nemo (2003), Dory is referred to by her species name in Finding Dory, a Blue Regal Tang. She also never gets Nemo's name wrong with Marlin having to correct her, and refers to Marlin by name for the first time in the film. See more »

In a post-end credits scene, Fluke and Rudder repel another attempt by Gerald to join them on the rock, while the Tank Gang from Finding Nemo (2003) floats by, still in their bags, which are filthy after crossing the ocean -- except for Jacques' bag of course. They begin to celebrate their arrival before being promptly scooped up by researchers from the Marine Life Institute and thrown into a cooler where they will be presumably rescued, rehabilitated and released. The ordeal distracts Fluke and Rudder long enough for Gerald to sneak onto the rock behind them. See more »
Finding Nemo was a big hit with kids and adults alike and led to a surge of interest in clown-fish.
Finding Dory is set a year after the events of the first film, as the forgetful Dory, a blue tang fish gets flashbacks to her early fish years in Morro Beach, California and strives to find her parents.
Marlon and Nemo assist her but they soon become separated and a lot of the action is set in an Aquarium with narration by Sigourney Weaver. There Dory meets Hank the Octopus who is a master of camouflage and reluctantly decides to help Dory in her quest.
It is clear to see how much the CGI animation has improved since Finding Nemo, but this sequel is less charming and also has less originality. Too many scenes are contrived so you see familiar faces or have Dory getting flashbacks with her parents. The finale with a truck chase sequence is just far fetched.
My kids enjoyed the movie and found parts of it emotional as well. Interest in clown-fish will still be around for a few more years.
