The director Andrew Stanton declared: “I’ve always had the impression, from the first time I wrote about Dory, that she has been wandered for years on the ocean alone, feeling always a sense of abandon. And it’s this sense of abandon that made her so kind and helpful. So she was thinking that in this way she could met someone who really cares about her and never abandon her again.

Her optimism and politeness were only covering a tragic element. Although I did not know all the details, the how or why, the idea came to me when I looked again NEMO. I haven’t seen it for years. I watched it in 2011 in the occasion of the 3D. I left the room completely dissatisfied, the story of Dory seemed incomplete. I felt that there was a hole still there, she could even forget Marlin and Nemo, and we continue to see herself as the one who was constantly apologizing for his short-term memory loss. It did not felt right. I felt, as a writer and director, we had left a door open in the first film, and I shouldn’t have done it”.

We have had the pleasure to enjoy the national premiere and laughter and smiles were not missed. The real star of this new animation is Dory, the young Nemo and Marlin will be looking for her. Besides being very funny and entertaining, the film wants to send a very important message: despite everything, despite the difficulties and the problems, also the ones that go beyond what you can control, you have to trust yourself, believe in yourself.

To have a deficiency, a defect or a difficulty is not synonymous of failure, it doesn’t mean you can’t make it, it only means that it will take longer to achieve your goals, maybe trying different roads and slamming into some walls, but in the end, the lesson is: you will still be able to achieve your goals.

With a smile and…a lot of kindness.
