Finding Dory: April Foolishness
I'm eternally hopeful that this will be more of a Toy Story-type scenario than a Cars one, but I still have this feverish averse reaction to meddling with gold. The delight of Finding Nemo was its heart, it's sweetness, it's buoyancy. Most of that came in the supporting character of Dory, delightfully and magnetically voiced by Ellen DeGeneres in a performance that should have earned an Oscar nomination, regardless of convention or snobbery. Dory was the perfect supporting character, however, which feels like it might stymie this project. It was a nearly indispensable character that I liken to those of which Thelma Ritter played in the fifties.
