Finding Dory With Story Changes
Finding Dory, the sequel to the tremendously successful Finding Nemo doesn't start in cinemas until 2015 and so changes in scripts are a regular occurrence, especially not at Pixar that always strives to optimize its films. But now, there has been a development that even prompted the New York Times to report.
The documentary Blackfish deals with the life of orca whales in the Californian theme park SeaWorld and doesn't paint the brightest picture of their situation. This made the makers of Dory change the ending of the film. It was supposed to take place in a comparable park and who knows what dark fate the animal heroes would have faced initially. However, now they will get a happier ending and can leave the park if they want to. That is so kind of Pixar.
"Pixar decided to restructure that part of the story so that the fish and mammals taken to its aquatic center have the option to leave."
