The setting of “Finding Dory,” the long-awaited sequel to “Finding Nemo,” has been revealed to be the Marine Biology Institute of California, thanks in part to “Blackfish.”

Pixar President Jim Morris confirmed the news at a recent comic book convention in Brazil. The institute is where Dory was born, and she travels back to the site of birth to learn more about her “fry-hood” and family. The park is described as “a huge rehabilitation complex for marine and aquarium life.” Apparently, Dory was born there, but was released back into the ocean at a young age. 

The scenario is similar to one that “Blackfish” director Gabriela Cowperthwaite hopes SeaWorld would adopt following the resignation of SeaWorld CEO Jim Atchison.

That’s not a coincidence.

According to the New York Times, the ending of the film was reworked in light of the damning documentary to ensure that sea creatures have the ability to leave the aquarium when they want to. Early speculation had the plot of “Finding Dory” being set at an aquatic park akin to SeaWorld.

The tweak to the script is a good one, and we applaud Pixar for making the change, especially when young minds will not doubt be influenced by the film. (Also, we can’t help but think that animal lover and vegan, Ellen DeGeneres, is far more comfortable with the new premise).

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
