“Finding Dory” is breaking box office records while entertaining whole families— but it is also teaching children valuable lessons about how to treat people with disabilities.
The title character, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, is a fish who has suffered with short-term memory loss since her birth. The movie is filled with other characters who have disabilities, too, and they all overcome obstacles together.
“I love that message, too, that even your disability can be your biggest strength,” DeGeneres told Entertainment Tonight.
It also sends viewers the message that, while Dory’s mind works differently from others, those who aren’t willing to be patient or kind are the ones with the real problems.
