This is the first Disney-Pixar film not to premiere in the United States in November, making it the first to be released in the UK in the same year, rather than the next.

Finding Nemo set a record as the highest grossing opening weekend for an animated feature, making $70 million (surpassed in 2004 by Shrek 2). It was, for a time, the highest grossing animated film of all time, eclipsing the record set by The Lion King. However, in less than four weeks of release, Shrek 2 surpassed Finding Nemo's domestic gross. By March 2004, Finding Nemo was one of the top ten highest-grossing films ever, having earned over US$850 million. The film received an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film in 2004. The film also received a Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in 2004 for favorite movie.

The title character's name alludes to Captain Nemo, the submarine captain in two of Jules Verne's novels: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and The Mysterious Island; also translates to "no one" in Latin, leading the title to mean "Finding No One."

The movie was released on a two-disc DVD on November 4, 2003.

Plot

The film tells the story of a widowed clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks). Marlin, after losing his wife, Coral, and children, in a barracuda attack sometime back, tries his best as a parent to his only remaining son Nemo. Because Nemo has a fin smaller than the other (his "lucky fin"), Marlin tries to hold his son back from all the exciting things in life, telling him the ocean isn't safe. Because of this, Nemo ventures out into open water to prove to his father that it is safe to do so. Marlin, in this case, was correct, as Nemo is scooped up and taken to an aquarium in a dentist's office in Sydney, Australia. Thus it is up to Marlin and his newfound "guide", Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a Regal Blue Tang fish who suffers from short-term memory loss but has a big heart, to bring Nemo back.

Marlin is forced to venture into an unknown and dangerous world which he never dreamed of entering. Dory helps Marlin realize he has been too restrictive on his son and must make amends. Nemo, meanwhile, gets involved in a plot with the other fish in the aquarium to escape from the dentist's office and return to the ocean.
