Full of hope and Dory; Fishy sequel is an adorable tale of courage and survival as forgetful blue fish sets off on journey of discovery.

After storming the US box office this underwater animated adventure finally arrives in the UK.

A superior sequel to 2003's Finding Nemo, it's exciting, warm and optimistic. Pixar's visual creatives demonstrate their astonishingly high levels of technical ability, bathing scenes in breathtaking pools of beauty.

The inclusivity, subtle eco warnings and traditional message of achieving one's potential complement and provide an anchor to the non-stop knockabout action scenes.

Set a year after the original box office smash Finding Nemo, an accident leaves forgetful fish Dory suffering flashbacks of her long-lost parents.

When Dory sets off on a perilous journey to be reunited with them, she finds herself on a voyage of self discovery, steering through deep and dark currents along the way.

Ellen DeGeneres is the emotional centre of the film as the voice of Dory, essaying a quiet change from annoyingly needy to gently confident.

Along for the ride are her friends Nemo and his over-protective father Marlin. Hayden Rolence and Albert Brooks buddy up nicely as the clownfish. Their of discovery expedition leads the trio to a marine sea life rescue institute in California.

But as they inventively navigate their way via water pipes, buckets, cups and a coffee pot, even the best intentioned of the humans are hazardous and the children especially so.

Sporting a variety of physical and mental disabilities, creatures of different species come harmoniously together to make a significant contribution to Dory's quest.

They are defined by their loyalty and bravery not their disabilities or the colour of their fins.

An adoryable tale from start to finish.
