In the Spotlight:
So I was on YouTube late one night and clicked on a video. Then this ad came up. Usually I hate ads, especially long ones. But this one was different. I saw the Pixar logo and thought "Oh, it must be another add for The Good Dinosaur". But then I saw a very familiar-looking anemone, and then a very familiar blue tang fish, and then an extremely familiar pair of clownfish! A trailer for the Blu-ray release of Finding Nemo? Nope! That came out ages ago! Yes, you guessed it: Finding Dory! Check it out below:
So excited! I have got to see this when it comes out. This movie has been in the works for years, so it's nice to see that Pixar is finally giving us a sequel to a movie we all loved as children (and still love even though we're definitely not children).
After being astounded by the Finding Dory trailer, I thought, "I wonder what other movie trailers are out now." So I looked up Ice Age: Collision Course and BOOM! A short! See it below:
Scrat causes the most amount of trouble, doesn't he? That just goes to show you that materialism doesn't only have bad consequences for you, but also those around you. Especially if you are a small, furry, nut-crazed saber-toothed squirrel living during the Ice Age.
By the way, speaking of Ice Age movies, did you know that Scrat, the saber-toothed squirrel, did not used to be a real animal? The first Ice Age film completely made up this creature. But in 2011, scientists announced finding a creature that looks almost exactly like Scrat, called Cronopio. Read more about that here: Cronopio.
