'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.

They say bad news travels fast, but I’d race vegan news against it.

WHY ARE WE SO CONFUSED?

The desire to be consistent morally results in an illogical rationalization of this nonsensical belief that it’s okay to eat the animals we claim to love.

Compared to the modern world, it was much harder to be vegan in Ma‘arrī’s time and place due to the religious and social pressures.
