Dixar is offering up Finding Nemo, streaming free online through Friday. (You go there and click the “What’s on DXD” link to get it.) This as part of their summer Wonderful World of Disney routine. Monsters Inc. and Peter Pan will also be shown over the course of the summer, with some other Disney movies that are less interesting. Hollywood Reporter told us this–all except the editorial comments about the quality of the films picked. That’s all me.
I will say…this is interesting. I didn’t watch the whole film, but you’ve got one commercial before it starts, so that’s pretty tolerable. Plus the quality is really quite good, especially for streaming and free. The Reporter article states that the advertising isn’t quite figured out yet–which makes sense, since some sort of commercial for the Nemo DVD would seem to be a no-brainer. However, their oversight is our gain. While this is both cool and commendable, please note that the company’s karma will be set back to zero following the release of the Jungle Book 2: Special Edition DVD on June 17th.
