Finding Nemo Sequel “Finding Dory” Coming in 2015!

I’ve often wondered about Dory’s backstory.  I mean, how did she come to be? Was she always so forgetful? I remember once while watching the Ellen Show that she joked about waiting for an e-mail asking her to be part of a sequel. I wonder how much she knew then? I never

Cinderella’s Story Continues in Cinderella II & III

Being such a fan of Cinderella, I really hate to admit that I did not know there were sequels made!  I know oftentimes subsequent movies are not as widely known or popular, but I’ve always wondered about life after the wedding.  I mean, we know Cinderella became a princess, but that’s where
