The animated Pixar sequel is headed to both formats this November.
From the Academy Award(R)-winning creators of Disney-Pixar's FINDING NEMO (Best Animated Feature, 2003) comes an epic undersea adventure filled with imagination, humor and heart. When Dory, the forgetful blue tang (Ellen DeGeneres), suddenly remembers she has a family who may be looking for her, she, Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence) take off on a life-changing quest to find them... with help from Hank, a cantankerous octopus; Bailey, a beluga whale who's convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny, a nearsighted whale shark! Bring home the movie overflowing with unforgettable characters, dazzling animation and delightful bonus extras!
Each combo pack will feature a lossless 7.1 soundtrack and supplements include: Theatrical Short: "Piper" – A hungry sandpiper hatchling ventures from her nest for the first time to dig for food by the shoreline.
