Don’t forget to watch “Finding Dory” when it comes out on June 17. I watched the first 30 minutes of the movie at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration last month and I can’t wait to see the rest of the movie! The movie is about Dory, who’s living happily in the reef with Nemo and Marlin. When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute, a rehabilitation center and aquarium.
