Nemo DVD specs

10.16.2003

One of the biggest disappointments for me this was summer was never being able to see FINDING NEMO in theaters. I had all intentions too and even had a date all planned, but one of the kids fell sick and I had to stay home and babysit while the Missus went without me. It was one of those situations where I waited to long and everyone already had seen it so I had no one to see it with me. Well soon I won't have any more excuses as Walt Disney and Pixar have announced the full specs for the FINDING NEMO DVD, which is scheduled for release on November 5th. It was the biggest movie of the year and certainly looks like it could be one of the biggest DVDs of the year. Of course you can pre-order the FINDING NEMO DVD through JoBlo.com and do your part to support this fine establishment. Take a look at all NEMO has to offer:
