‘Nemo' DVD Plays Swimmingly3 Nov, 2003 By: Stephanie Prange
Yesterday I got a peek at the DVD of Finding Nemo from Walt Disney Home Video and Pixar during a launch event at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, Calif. The extras look truly engaging, especially for my 5-year-old, who is a big fan of underwater sea life.
Among the cool extras is a section in which the kids learn about different sea animals. It's both educational and fun, keeping my daughter engaged for some time. Also enjoyable is the documentary included on the disc.
The Fisharades segment also kept her attention, as a school of fish make different objects which the viewer must identify. It's a cute idea and more involving than some disc games I've seen.
But it's the little touches that impressed me -- extra scenes or segments that included new animation and dialogue, with humor in the vein of the movie.
Certainly, we've seen some clever DVDs, but not all feature the humor and cleverness associated with the Nemo effort.
