The creators and stars of FINDING DORY dish on life under the sea

Disney is determined to remake every single of one of its animated films as live action blockbusters, and so far the results have been a mixed bag. ALICE IN WONDERLAND, while fun, doesn’t hold up on subsequent viewings. CINDERELLA, while visually striking, suffered from hobbled writing and uneven casting.
