Finding Dory


With the excitement of the new Finding Dory movie coming out soon, it’s time to prepare with all the best toys! Luckily here at Imperial Toy, we have a variety of Finding Dory toys that you and your little ones can enjoy. Check out the trailer here!

Finding Dory is steeped in nostalgia. In 2003, Finding Nemo came out and changed the lives of kids and the face of animation forever. Thirteen years later, we’re getting a sequel—and we’re excited! The craze for the movie is growing by the day, and it is set to be released in theaters on Friday, June 17, 2016. But before you go watch the movie with your little ones, check out these interesting facts about Finding Dory, a movie we can’t wait to watch.

It took three and a half years to make the storyboard for the movie alone.



Speaking of storyboards, 103,639 total storyboards were made for this movie. Can you imagine? This film is truly a labor of love and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for us.

The film focuses on the mother/daughter relationship between Dory and her missing mother.

Another new character in Finding Dory is Hank, the octopus. Your little ones are sure to love him and his ‘tude, while he reps himself and the movie in the form of a fun sprinkler in your backyard. Perfect for your kiddos to play with in the summer heat. Get ‘em excited for the movie and tired out for bedtime at the same time!

Hank Sprinkler

Hank took a really long time to design. Artists spent 22 weeks shading all aspects of him. But he only has seven arms—which is why he has 350 suckers: 50 on each arm.

Even though Dory, a Pacific regal blue tang fish that can be found in the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean, suffers from short-term memory loss (as we all remember from Finding Nemo), the writers of Finding Dory still wanted her to be taken seriously, and not be seen as just silly. So they took care to make sure that Dory, despite her memory issues, still said some clever and interesting things for the audience to reflect on later.



Finding Dory is out in theaters June 17. Follow us on social media and let us know what you think of the movie and what you favorite Finding Dory product from us is!
