Pixar Reportedly Changed

‘Finding Nemo’ Sequel Ending

Due to Eye-Opening Documentary

Finding Dory, the sequel to Pixar’s Finding Nemo, doesn’t want to be associated in kids minds with Blackfish, a documentary about the mistreatment of Orca killer whales in captivity and how it leads the animals to turn on and sometimes kill their trainers.   Finding Dory reportedly has Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres) making some friends with some Bull Orca Killer Whales, who eventually end up in a water park.  But Pixar studio chief John Lassiter and director Andrew Stantton changed their mind after animal rights activist Filmmaker and animal rights activist Louie Psihoyos, who made the 2009 documentary “The Cove” about dolphin hunting in Japan, told the Los Angeles Times that “Blackfish” director Gabriela Cowperthwaite was invited to Pixar’s headquarters to screen her film.   After seeing Blackfish Lassiter and Stanton rewrote the ending to give the creatures the option to return to the wild.  Blackfish director Gabriella reportedly told the Los Angeles Times that “they didn’t want to look back on this film in 50 years and have it be their ‘Song of the South.'”  That 1946 film came under harsh criticism for its sometimes demeaning portrayal of African-Americans living on a post-Civil War plantation.
