Cat Version of Finding Nemo
‘Finding Nemo‘ originally came to theaters in 2003, but even today it is still one of Disney Pixar’s most popular films. If you have never seen the movie, it’s about an overly protective father clownfish who is trying to find his abducted son, Nemo, with the help of a friendly, but not too smart, blue tang. Lessons that include taking risks and letting go are learned by all the fish in ‘Finding Nemo’.
The film did win an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, and was also nominated for Best Original Screenplay and other awards. It earned a total of $936 million worldwide putting it in second place for the top grossing movies of 2003.
But does anyone else feel that THIS version of ‘Finding Nemo’ is just a bit ironic? A movie about FISH….re-done….with CATS? Many might even say this rendition is a bit disturbing or even creepy. But having seen ‘Finding Nemo’ numerous times…it’s pretty spot-on to the original! And honestly….the kid narrating does a pretty cute and awesome job….especially when he speaks “whale”!
Don’t worry, the kittens used in this adaptation weren’t harmed and there is a rumor that they were adopted from a local animal shelter.
