We Find “Finding Dory” Charming: Review
Families can be made up of all kinds of different people (or in this case, fish). That’s the big idea behind the recently-released movie, Finding Dory.
Finding Dory is the sequel to the very popular movie Finding Nemo, which came out 13 years ago. Both are “animated” movies (similar to cartoons).
In Finding Dory, a forgetful blue fish named Dory becomes lost, and must be reunited with special people in her life.

New J.K. Rowling Movie Will Be Set In The Wizarding World
J. K. Rowling is writing a new movie set in the wizarding world.
It won’t feature the character Harry Potter, but it is inspired by one of the boy wizard’s textbooks: Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them, “written” by fictional author Newton Scamander.
Warner Brothers film studios told Rowling they wanted to make a movie based on the fictional textbook, used by Potter and his friend, Ron Weasley.
The new movie will feature the adventures of a 21-year-old Newton Scamander.
Scamander is an expert in Magizoology, the study of magical creatures.
Artist Draws Superheroes Inspired By Girls
Artist Alex Law believes kids know best what a superhero should look like.
So, in a new online project she calls “Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You” she’s taken her inspiration from girls.
“I remember being a young girl myself and being unsatisfied with the female characters available to me,” she told TKN in an email.
“Most female superheroes are designed and written by adult men, and I don’t think adult men know or even care about what girls like.”
So, when she saw some little girls dressed as their favourite superheroes, she started drawing them.
And she turned them into superheroes.
IBM Produces World’s Smallest Movie–Made Of Atoms
It’s about a boy and an atom.
And it may just be the world’s most impressive stop-motion film.
That’s because the film is made entirely of atoms.
Stop-motion animation is a way of making a movie using still pictures.
One company, a computer company called IBM, has made the world’s smallest—and arguably the most amazing—stop-motion video.
The video features a boy named Atom playing with a “ball” (really an atom) and bouncing on a trampoline. It’s a simple film, but its importance is enormous.
That’s because, rather than a doll, the filmmakers used atoms.
An atom is a microscopic piece of matter. Atoms can’t be seen with the naked eye, or even a normal microscope, because they are too small.
