Directors' statement
“I always had — when I even wrote her originally to bump into Marlin in the first movie — I knew that she had wandered the ocean for years with no memory of where and that she had this sense of abandonment, and that that was the reason she was so friendly and so helpful, because she kind of swam around with this fear of being ditched all the time. And so she wanted to ensure that maybe, if I’m really helpful and really friendly and really optimistic, you might stick around with me. So I always knew there was that sort of tragic element to her under the hood in the first movie. I didn’t know exactly any details of how and why. […] The idea sparked when I watched the movie again. I hadn’t watched it in years, I watched it in 2011 to watch the 3D release. They wanted me to approve it. And I walked out just completely feeling dissatisfied with Dory’s — where she was left. I felt like that hole was still there, that she could forget Marlin and Nemo, and that she saw herself as still someone who had to apologize for her short-term memory loss, and it just didn’t feel right. I felt like as a writer and filmmaker, I left a door open that I shouldn’t have left open in the first movie”.
