Finding Dory gets back-to-back screenings with Finding Nemo
Dory won the hearts of fans worldwide in 2003’s Academy Award-winning Finding Nemo. This summer, that forgetful blue tang is back on the big screen in Finding Dory. Disney•Pixar has announced that on Thursday, June 16, the day before the movie officially opens in theaters, Dory’s biggest fans will have an opportunity to see both movies back to back with Dory After Dark.
More than 90 locations in North America will take part in this one-night event, when moviegoers will be treated to a late-night screening of Finding Nemo before joining a select few fans as the very first to see the much-anticipated follow-up, Finding Dory.
Kicking off at 9 p.m. (exact time may vary by location), Dory After Dark is more than a double feature, it’s a celebration that invites fans to dive in with Dory, Marlin and Nemo, plus new friends Hank, Destiny and Bailey. Guests will receive an event-exclusive Dory After Dark reusable bag and an “I Speak Whale” button. There will also be opportunities to share the experience throughout the evening with custom Snapchat filters. Tickets are on sale now and you can click here to find a list of theaters.
Finding Dory picks up six months after the first movie, with Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) living a quiet life among the clown fishes. After going with Nemo on a class trip to see manta rays migrate back home, her home sickness leads the forgetful Dory on a quest to find where she came from.
Finding Dory features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life, such as her parents voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.
Findng Nemo helmer Andrew Stanton (John Carter) returns to the directors chair for the animated film, which features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Michael Sheen, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton.
Walt Disney Pictures will release the animated sequel on June 17.[Gallery not found]
