Sea it like never before! For the first time ever, through the magic of Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D, fully immerse yourself in the stunning underwater world of Disney/Pixar's FINDING NEMO! From the creators of TOY STORY and MONSTERS, INC., this critically acclaimed and heartwarming tale splashes off the screen with brilliant digital picture, high definition sound and breathtaking bonus features that transport you beyond your imagination. In the depths of the Great Barrier Reef, Marlin (Albert Brooks), an overly protective clownfish, embarks on a daring rescue mission when his beloved son, Nemo, gets scooped up by a diver. With his unforgettable friend Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) by his side, Marlin encounters an ocean full of memorable comedic characters on his momentous journey -- to find Nemo. Bring home the humor and heartfelt emotion of the epic adventure that captured the Academy Award for "Best Animated Feature Film" (2003) -- now more awesome than ever on Disney Blu-ray!
If there's any environment that demands 3-D treatment, it's the ocean. Pixar has lovingly translated its 2003 megahit Finding Nemo
into 3-D. The result is a lush, inviting undersea world that makes this wonderful tale of loss, parental love, and thrilling adventure even more engaging. The company has wisely not altered the story at all: when a young clownfish named Nemo is captured by scuba divers, his neurotic father Marlin (voiced by neurotic comedian Albert Brooks) sets off to the rescue, aided by a blue tang fish named Dory (brilliantly voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) with a short-term memory loss problem. What follows are ingeniously orchestrated action sequences featuring sharks, jellyfish, a ghastly translucent deepwater fish, pelicans and seagulls, sea turtles, and even an elaborate escape from an aquarium in an Australian dentist's office--all enhanced (but not overdone) by being made 3-D. Through it all runs a deep current of emotion that has made Finding Nemo
one of Pixar's most successful features. This 3-D release will only add to its appeal; Marlin and Dory's odyssey through the watery depths is made even more immersive by this marriage of subtle artistry and technical skill. --Bret Fetzer
