Start Your Week Off Right

Each week I post a quote from Walt Disney, a Disney movie, ride, etc. to keep the Disney spirit going... even on a Monday!

Bruce: [reciting] I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. If I am to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends, not food. 

Here are some fun facts from

* Pixar's characters are often planned years in advance. Nemo first appeared as a stuffed toy on a couch in Boo's room in Monster's Inc. This movie introduces the main characters of post-2003 Pixar films. A boy in the dentist's office is reading a "Mr. Incredible" comic book, anticipating The Incredibles. Luigi the car is driving by the dentist's office, anticipating Cars.

* Finding Nemo was dedicated to the memory of Glenn McQueen (1960-2002), a Pixar animator who would later be honored as the namesake of Lightning McQueen in Cars.

* To see how realistic they could make it appear, the art team was asked to make exact copies of actual underwater and above-water shots. Ultimately, the results were simply deemed "too realistic" for a cartoon.

Who is going to go see Finding Nemo 3D in theaters (coming out this Friday)?
