'Finding Dory' Gets a Blackfish-Inspired Rewrite

“Blackfish,” the documentary that sheds light on orcas in captivity, is opening eyes and hearts everywhere. It has even inspired a rewrite in the much-anticipated “Finding Nemo” sequel, “Finding Dory.”

The Pixar film is still in production, and rewrites and tweaks are common occurrences for animated flicks in the works.  According to The New York Times, the original script included a scene at an aquatic park (a la Sea World?), but the “Blackfish”-inspired tweak has changed the story so the sea characters have the option to leave the park.

Pixar films are usually kept hush-hush until closer to release; even the full story line to the film is still unknown at this time. Walt Disney Studios, which includes Pixar, has so far declined to comment, so nothing more is known about this story change at this time. Still, this little tid bit is pretty exciting! In a time when young people are greatly influenced by pop culture and media, a popular animated film with an animal-friendly message is refreshing and greatly needed.

“Finding Dory” has a scheduled release date of November 25, 2015.

This is yet again just another example of how large animal organisations manipulate information in order to fundraise and claim “victory.”

Cultured meat begins with animal exploitation, and ends with the normative message that animals are the sort of beings that can be used as human resources.
