Now that Pixar is hard at work on Finding Dory, it is only natural that we revisit the earlier awesome movie, Finding Nemo. The Pixar animation team working on Finding Nemo had to take a graduate class in fish biology so that the movements and natural habitats of the fish depicted were very close to real.

Of course, both of the places would have to be treated way differently, the absolutely packed and dirty Los Angeles of 2154, the vehicles, the technology, and of course, the grandeur of Elysium.
