|Academy Award®-winning film “Finding Nemo”
returns to the big screen in thrilling Disney Digital 3D™ for
the first time ever. Teeming with memorable comedic characters
and heartfelt emotion, this stunning underwater adventure
follows the momentous journey of an overprotective clownfish
named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) and his young son Nemo
(voiced by Alexander Gould)––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 (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a
friendly-but-forgetful blue tang, Marlin embarks on a dangerous
trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic effort to
rescue his son––who hatches a few daring plans of his own to
return safely home.
