Check out these cool, interesting facts about FINDING DORY, including the reason why Hank the octopus has seven tentacles!
Finding Dory , the Finding Nemo sequel was released several weeks ago, and it has been a great hit. Hopefully you have already seen the movie. However even if you haven’t seen the movie or you have, you can check out these facts about Finding Dory.
1. FILMMAKERS STUDIED PSYCHOLOGY TO HELP WITH THE STORY
Following the events of Finding Nemo, Dory found a new home with Marlin and Nemo. To better understand how she would adjust to her new family, yet still wonder about her past, animators studied the psychology of adoption.
2. NEMO WAS RECAST
Because Alexander Gould (the original voice of Nemo) is 22, 12-year-old Hayden Rolence had to step in to voice the character. He was offered the job before recording ever began, and had to keep it a secret from his friends and family. Despite being replaced, Gould does make a special cameo in the film.
3. AL BROOKS (MARLIN) WAS ABLE TO IMPROVISE MORE
In Finding Nemo, Marlin (voiced by comedian Albert Brooks) was dealing with a lot. With that burden lifted in Finding Dory, he was able to do a bit more improv for the film—and the results were hilarious!
4. HANK HAS SEVEN TENTACLES FOR A REASON
The octopus’ tapered tentacles were designed separately from his body. When they tried to attach them, only seven fit. Later on, they decided to work the affliction into the script. Another fun fact regarding the tentacles is that there are 50 suckers per arm, which makes for 350 in all!
