Disney’s 3 biggest upcoming animated movies

Finding Dory
Fans of “Finding Nemo” can’t wait for “Finding Dory”.

Walt Disney Animation has three amazing movies on the horizon, with Zootopia, The Good Dinosaur, and Finding Dory.

First up is Finding Dory, the sequel to Finding Nemo, which takes place one year after the events of the first film. The story follows Dory (voiced by comedian Ellen DeGeneres) off the coast of California, as she attempts to reunite with her family. The ending, which originally had the critters heading to an ocean theme park similar to SeaWorld, had to be changed because of BlackFish, a documentary focusing on whales and their mistreatment in captivity. SeaWorld even vows to replace Shamu killer whale shows with a pro-conservation one! Anyhow, you can look forward to swimming the deep blue ocean with Dory on June 17, 2016.

In less fishy news, Zootopia takes animals to an entirely new level, as director Byron Howard and writer Jared Bush offer a comedic twist to modern society and its stereotypes. Animals live in cities like Tundra Town (for cold weather animals), Sahara Square (a cross between the city of Dubai and Monte Carlo), a Rain Forest district, Little Rodentia (a home for mice), and Burrow Borough (home to rabbits). Join main characters Nick Wilde (a fox) and Judy Hops (a rabbit), as they form an uncanny friendship to help clear their names after being wrongfully framed for a crime they didn’t commit. The movie hits theaters March 4, 2016.

The Good Dinosaur
A friendly dino from “The Good Dinosaur”.

If fuzzy animals aren’t your thing, then you can catch The Good Dinosaur, which will take you back 65 million years to a land before time! 

In this alternate history flick, the asteroid that caused dinos to go extinct ends up missing Earth instead.

The story follows Arlo, an Apatosaurus who finds a savage little human boy named Spot.

Spot isn’t afraid of anyone, including the dinosaurs, and he causes a major mess.

The movie is set to debut very soon! It comes out on November 25, 2015.
