Ellen DeGeneres' 'Finding Nemo' gets a 3D re-release – is it worth the ticket price?
Three years before Disney officially purchased Pixar Studios, the animation house released one of their most beloved and critically lauded films to date. Finding Nemo opened May 30, 2003 and delivered over $800 million in worldwide ticket sales – on a $94 million budget. Since that time, the film has become a fan-favorite home entertainment choice for families and animation fans – not to mention positioned characters like Nemo, Marlin, and Dory as long-term merchandising platforms.
Now that 3D has managed to take hold both at the box office and home theaters, Disney has been digging in the Pixar archives and rereleasing certain films with new 3D visuals – including Toy Story, Toy Story 2, and soon Monsters Inc. Given the critical and commercial success of the film, there’s no debating that the Finding Nemo story is a must see for movie fans. However, with ten years of availability on DVD (and now Blu-ray), does Finding Nemo 3D, coupled with Mark Walsh’s Toy Story short, Partysaurus Rex, offer enough payoff to make it worth another viewing - this time in 3D?
