Families and youngster have a grand time at the cinema in 2016 with a plethora of much awaited animation movies coming to India!! One of them is Disney-Pixar’s much-anticipated sequel Finding Dory, the sequel to the 2003 film Finding Nemo. Fans have been waiting since 2003 for the sequel and it will finally release this week.
Finding Dory focuses on the amnesia character Dory, and explores her journey to be reunited with her family. The film takes place six months after the events of Finding Nemo and is set off the coast of California. Many characters from the first film, including Dory, Nemo, Marlin, Mr. Ray, Crush and Squirt, all appear in the sequel. “Finding Dory” features an all-star voice cast, welcoming Ellen DeGeneres (“The Ellen DeGeneres Show”) and Albert Brooks (“This is 40”) back to the sea as favorite fish Dory and Marlin. Ed O’Neill (“Modern Family”)lends his voice to “septopus” Hank, Kaitlin Olson (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) voices whale shark Destiny, and Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”)gives voice to beluga whale Bailey. Portraying Dory’s parents Charlie and Jenny are Eugene Levy (“Schitt’s Creek”) and Diane Keaton (“Love the Coopers”). And 12-year-old Hayden Rolence (“Beta Persei”) steps in to help bring Nemo to life.
With Disney-Pixar’s FINDING DORY up for release this week, here’s a quick look at the other movies up for release this year:
A CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana(voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master way finder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. This film is touted to be the next ‘Frozen’ for Disney
Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”) and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into Indian theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
2. The Secret Life Of Pets
The same minds that brought audiences Despicable Me back in 2010 are now at it again in a cute, family-friendly film that follows pet’s lives when their owners are away. The Secret Life of Pets is about a single pet in particular, Max (Louis C.K.), as his life is turned upside down when his owner brings home a new pet, Duke (Eric Stonestreet). But the feud must turn into a friendship when abandoned pets begin an army meant to take revenge on all the happily owned pets.Dana Carvey, Bobby Moynihan, Ellie Kemper and Kevin Hart also lend their voices to the animated film.
They used to deliver babies, but now, storks are used to deliver packages all around the world via Cornerstore.com, a global Internet giant. Junior (Andy Samberg) is the top delivery stork until he anciently turns on the Baby Making Machine and produces an unauthorized child that he must then deliver before his boss finds out, quite possibly beginning the end of delivery packages and starting over an age-old tradition of delivering babies. To date, the only other known cast member is Kelsey Grammer. Still, the film is family friendly and falls under comedy and adventure, making it an animated film to watch out for in 2016
4. Sausage Party
The film — which boasts a voice cast that includes Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, and James Franco —follows one sausage on a journey of self-discovery, as he and his friends rush to make it back to their grocery store aisles in time for a new sale. It sounds ridiculous, but if nothing else, the film should offer an alternative to those squeaky-clean animated comedies.
