If you get sick of browsing Netflix wondering what to watch, look no further because Finding Dory is now streaming! I love horror just as much as the next brain eating ghoul, but a good animated story, preferably ones where no animals are harmed, are always something I enjoy. Because of the fear of seeing “sad” moments in animated films, I often avoid them. Fortunately, I gave Finding Dory a chance and it was well worth it.
On that note, here are 8 reasons to watch Finding Dory while it’s streaming on Netflix. (Spoilers!)
1. Baby Dory is Freaking Adorable
Just look at those little fins and big beautiful purple eyes! She melts your heart, even more so with her short term memory loss. But her personality is what we love the most!
2. A Great Back Story and New Journey
Although I love Finding Demo, Finding Dory has a deeper storyline and backstory. Can you imagine losing your family and not remembering them? We get to see Dory’s beginnings and how she became the wonderful fish she is. Personally, I think it gives Finding Nemo a run for its money.
3. New Characters
In this story, we are reunited with some of our favorite characters and introduced to many new ones, including a whale from her past and a Septopus named Hank, played by Ed O’Neill. All of them, whether they know her well or not, help Dory along her journey to find her parents and will do anything to make it happen.
4. Comedy Relief
I’m not gonna lie, I cried throughout most of this film because I’m a softy and I can’t handle sad, sweet, and extremely happy moments in an animated film. Luckily for me, there were plenty of laughs as well, and that’s always necessary for these type of films. These walruses were quite comical – something the whole family can enjoy.
5. No Bad Guys
I think animated films often rely heavily on bad guys or antagonists, but you can have a great story without them. Finding Dory proves that. I mean, the only bad things in this story are the wall that’s separating Dory from her family and her memory loss.
6. Sigourney Weaver Makes An Appearance
Okay maybe we only hear her voice, but every movie is better with Sigourney Weaver, right? Her disembodied voice welcomes visitors to the Marine Life Institute in Morro Bay, California. “Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Release.”
7. You Can Do Anything You Set Your Heart On
Despite her “disability,” Dory has made it through life one fin at a time. This time around, she’s bound and determined to find her family, and guess what? She does it! Despite all the obstacles, she pushes herself and proves anything can happen if you set your heart on it. Just keep swimming! Plus, having great friends who will support you in your endeavors is always great. “I get by with a little help from my friends.”
8. If You Need A Good Cry
Sometimes it feels good to cry and just to let everything out. The moment Dory finds her parents, you’ll completely lose it. If you don’t, then you probably don’t have a soul. Just kidding. Sort of. It was a good cry either way and all the sad moments were worth it! I definitely will be revisiting soon.
