Thirteen years on from Pixar's family adventure Finding Nemo, Dory, the plucky blue tang fish who helped Nemo's anxiety-racked dad scour the oceans for his missing son, gets an origin story of her very own. For Dory, the first step to tracking down her own parents is remembering that she actually had a mum and dad, not easy when you've a memory span of just a few seconds. Something inside her, however, tells her to make for the coast of California, and with clown fish Nemo and his worrywart father along for support, another sea-going odyssey gets underway. Once again, the imperatives of family reunion give the proceedings genuine emotional heft, but here the visual palette is so much richer than in the original, showing how technology has advanced to deliver wonderfully immersive micro-detailed sub-aquatic vistas and bring to life captivating new characters including a curmudgeonly octopus with chameleon-like powers. The overall level of invention is simply dazzling, the comedy adeptly caters for parents and kids alike, while the story of a little fish learning to triumph over the disability that has thus far defined her sprinkles genuine tears amid the abundant laughter. It's exactly what a great sequel should be - like the original, only better.


Young clownfish Nemo and his dad Marlin set out on an underwater adventure to help their forgetful friend Dory find her parents, meeting the grouchy but well-meaning octopus Hank along the way. Pixar animated sequel, featuring the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks and Ed O'Neill.
