In Theaters September 14th! Finding Nemo 3D & PartySaurus Rex | #DisneyInHomeBloggers

In theaters THIS WEEKEND…Finding Nemo 3D and let me tell you… it is SO worth seeing!! I had the opportunity to review this movie as part of the Disney In Home Bloggers trip that I attended in California last month and I am so excited to tell you about it!

I have loved the movie Finding Nemo since before I had children, however, I must admit, I think I began to love it for different reasons once I had children of my own, and it quickly became one of our “favorites”. We have probably watched Finding Nemo 100 times together over the past 7 years … and we have countless Nemo books and characters around here.

So, to be honest, when I attended the screening, I wasn’t expecting to be too moved by the 3D version of Finding Nemo. I was actually a bit concerned about maybe feeling like I was watching it for the 100th time (which kind of, I was!) However, it was amazing to me that this actually seemed like an entirely new movie. I mean, it was the same movie…… but different. The ocean was brighter, deeper, the shadows were darker and the water movement was, for lack of a better word, “realer”. When you watch this movie in 3D it is almost like an underwater experience. The ocean comes to life, and the movement of the characters is amazing. It feels like you are right there with them, moving along the EAC. You know, the Eastern Australian Current? Yeah… the EAC. Awesome dude!

One of my favorite characters in Finding Nemo is Dory. Her personality just cracks me up and I love her simple (and very forgetful) outlook on life. Despite everything, she is always positive and always looks at the bright side of things. One of my favorite part of Finding Nemo is when Marlin is dwelling on not {over}protecting Nemo:

Marlin says, “I promised I’d never let anything happen to him.” Dory responds, “Hmm. That’s a funny thing to promise. You can’t never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him. Not much fun for little Harpo.”

From the very first time that I watched this movie, this part really moved me. Such a strong message, and it is one of my favorite lines from all of the Disney movies that I have seen. A great reminder about parenting and life in general.

Here I am with the awesome group of fellow bloggers that I got to enjoy this experience with …

What makes the 3D version so special? I actually had not seen a movie in 3D before. (ok, well I take that back. I faintly remember a seeing a movie in the 90s with some funky (dorky) cardboard glasses that had one red eye and one blue eye and it gave me a terrible headache) So … I had no idea how far 3D had come, and I also had no idea just how comfortable and even relaxing on the eyes that a 3D movie would be. Finding Nemo 3D was almost therapeutic as the scenes were so beautiful and exciting. And although I am pretty sure it is the exact same movie/story as we have seen over the last decade, I kept feeling like I was seeing, and even hearing, new things. It really does feel like a new experience when you see it in 3D!

As an added bonus, we also got to see Disney’s short film, PartySaurus Rex. One word: Hilarious. Ok, second word: AWESOME. This short film had me dancing in my seat and I didn’t want it to end… so charming and LAUGH.OUT.LOUD funny. Here’s just a sneak peek at this fun little movie, take a minute to watch this, it will put a smile on your face, I promise:

Trust me… treat yourself to a heart warming experience and see these awesome films as they hit theaters this weekend, September 14th!

Stay tuned as I have even more to share about my trip to California, including more from Disneyland, Disney Toons Studios, , a fun interview with Crush (Turtle Talk), an exclusive meet and greet with Tinker Bell & Periwinkle … and so much more.

  1. The Rex preview was adorable! I’m taking my daughter to see Nemo 3D for sure. She is 2 and has loved this movie since she was only 6 months old! I just hope she will keep the 3D glasses on!!
