Pics and Pins of Finding Nemo

Various movie posters advertising the film. The first shows Nemo lost in a swarm of circling fish, the second features Bruce sneaking up behind Marlin and Dory, and the final one features the various characters of the film in the Sydney Harbor.d  FindingNemo_poster     Nemo-poster2


Lets take a look at one of the trailers.

Marlin is the scared Clownfish father of Nemo who always is scared of what is going to happen or what will happen. He is very protective of his son, Nemo.chrs_marlin

Nemo is the only clownfish who survived the barracuda attack on Coral’s (his mother) eggs, because of the attack he has an underdeveloped right fin, his father and him call it his “lucky fin”. His name alludes to Captain Nemo of Jules Vernes’ 20,000 Under the Sea.chrs_nemo

Even though shown for a couple moments in the film, Coral was created the same way the other chracters of the film were, with care and precision. chrs_coral

Dory is the forgetful Blue Tang. She helps Marlin get to Sydney, Australia and ultimately is the one who finds Nemo.chrs_dory

Nigel, the loveable seagull, talks to Nemo and the Tank Gang in the Dentist’s office. He helps and brings Marlin and Dory to the Dentist’s Office to find Nemo.chrs_nigel

Crush and Squirt are the sea turtles who ride the EAC (East Australian Current), and help Marlin and Dory get to Sydney. Even though they only appear for a relatively short period of the film, compared to other characters, they are well loved among many fans and enthusiasts. chrs_crush




The Sharks, Bruce, Anchor and Chum, first seem to want to eat Marlin and Dory, but then the audience finds out that they are on a “no fish diet”, and they are on their way to a “support group” and needed fish buddies. Their motto is, “Fish Are Friends Not Food”.sharks
