Opening in theaters on September 14th is the classic Pixar film Finding Nemo, which is now being re-released in 3D. The movie was directed by Andrew Stanton (John Carter) and Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and boasts an amazing cast of voice actors that includes Albert Brooks (Drive), Ellen DeGeneres (The Love Letter), Alexander Gould (How to Eat Fried Worms), Willem Dafoe (The Hunter), Brad Garrett (Tangled), Allison Janney (The Help), Austin Pendleton (The Muppet Movie), Stephen Root (Rango), Geoffrey Rush (Green Lantern), Eric Bana (Hulk), and John Ratzenberger (Brave).

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of traveling to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco to speak with co-director Lee Unkrich, as well as Pixar's Stereoscopic Supervisor Bob Whitehill, and director of 3D production Josh Hollander about Finding Nemo 3D. The filmmakers discussed the movie, its cultural impact, Brooks and DeGeneres' amazing voice performances, why the film was right for a 3D update, the process of actually converting it to the new format, and Pixar's chief creative officer John Lasseter's obsession with 3D.
