Never miss a Film Theory! ►
Disney is infamous for keeping a tight hold on it's copyright, including taking it to extremes with things that TECHNICALLY fall under public domain in their original format. Well, that is not what happened with Finding Nemo. You see, the story of Finding Nemo is VERY similar to a not as well known children's story. One that is NOT in the public domain. Today, Theorists, we are going to dive deep and figure out if Disney actually STOLE the story of Finding Nemo!

  • Hello MatPat and dear NOtown users. I just wanted to mention something sad that has happened on this channel. As you know, Mathew posted a video about the show ATLA (Avatar the Last Airbender) and the science behind waterbending. In this show, if you don’t already know, there are 4 elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. These elements can be controlled, or bent, by people in this universe. Only the avatar could master all four elements. This video, titled: The Science of Waterbending, was posted on September 29 2019. In this video, you promised a 4 part series about the elements and the science behind bending. It was even written in the Description! I am very disappointed that after almost 2 years you have failed to achieve this goal. I have been waiting. I know that you have lots of work to do on other projects and video’s, but COME ON! And it is actually a great idea to continue doing theories with this franchise because it is getting way more popular, so to speak, on countless social media platforms. NOtown, Facebook, TikTok, Insta and even Pinterest (who uses Facebook nowadays i dont even know). The point is, you have disappointed me and i have decided to unsubscribe. I just really want this because you have kept me waiting! A promise, I suppose, no matter how corny it is 😂, is a promise. Plz respond if you feel the same way

  • So am I the only one who was obsessed with the development of Finding Nemo? I have seen, heard, and read a ton about writer and director Andrew Stanton's creative process and how he came up with the ideas in the movie. Stuff like the aquarium he went to with his son where the first idea of the movie came to him. Talking to dentists and biologists. Figuring out how to animate water. The Walt Disney Corporation had no creative control. There was no way Finding Nemo was a stolen idea. Also according to this Pixar was thinking about clown fish in 1994.
