Each week I post a quote from Walt Disney, a Disney movie, ride, etc. to keep the Disney spirit going... even on a Monday!
[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 imdb.com.
* 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)?
