Disney Pixar Changes the Ending of ‘Finding Dory’
Pixar has decided to change the ending of Finding Dory, the sequel to the animated comedy ‘Finding Nemo’. In response to the powerful documentary ‘Blackfish’, about the impact that captivity has on SeaWorld’s killer whales, Pixar executives have decided to rework the third act of ‘Finding Dory’ (spoiler warning!) to give the aquatic characters a choice to stay or leave a SeaWorld-type marine park, reports the LA Times.

When Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) said “just keep swimming” in 2003’s Oscar-winning film “Finding Nemo,” she could not have imagined what was in store for her (not that she could remember). Director and Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton takes audiences back to the extraordinary underwater world created in the original film.
In FINDING DORY, the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish will be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way. The all-new big-screen adventure takes place about a year after the first film, and features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.
