About this deal

Initially, some of the characters were to end up in a SeaWorld-like marine park, but the revision gave them an option to leave. Stanton additionally stated: "I knew if I ever said Finding Dory or mentioned a sequel to Finding Nemo out loud, I'd be done, [T]here would be no way I'd be able to put that horse back in the barn. Frank’s stories were a gift and he intended them to bring joy and pleasure, which they did, for children and adults alike.

The segments where Maud forces herself onto the Wizard of Oz studio set may seem a bit more dubious, but the author manages to juxtapose the magical quality of the picture with the darker realities of Judy Garland’s life as a young actress at the mercy of a monstrous stage mother, sexual harassment, and the pressure to stay thin and childlike. Letts expertly illuminates the true story behind the tale beloved by so many readers through history, but best of all is the wonderful depiction of Maud herself. This fantastical place was the concrete manifestation of what Frank had been able to imagine long before it had come to pass.Yet, when it came to Frank… well, he wasn’t what her mother had in mind for Maud, but despite his obvious flaws, the two were a passionate couple, despite having opposite temperaments.

As with its predecessor Finding Nemo, the studio expanded the theater count for the film during Labor Day Weekend from 345 to 2,075. Together, with Bob Peterson, they discussed about different ideas for places Dory would visit during her journey — one of those ideas was the touch pool sequence. Maud was astonished to see a giant young man—­well over six feet tall—­rubbing his head, then bending over to gather up a scattered pile of papers from the floor.To get her to be able to lead and to get an audience to be able to trust her was the hardest thing to do. Maud was about to ask him why, but as she’d aged she’d learned to keep her thoughts to herself so as not to come off as a doddering old fool. Louis Armstrong's version of " What a Wonderful World" is played during the scene in which fish are released into the ocean as the truck Dory and Hank are driving crashes into the water. As the last living link to the inspiration behind the story, she was determined to offer her services as a consultant.
