SILVER SPRING, Md. — In a special dispensation for fans desperate to see Pixar’s new release, Finding Dory, General Conference officials have opted to allow Seventh-day Adventists to see the animated sequel to Finding Nemo in theaters. The reason for the exception? The film has been categorized as a “nature video.”
“We don’t normally do this but we as Adventist have a soft spot for nature videos,” said GC movie critic Faya Chariot. “The story of a cute blue-tang fish called Dory on a brave quest to find her parents was so moving that we are letting Adventists see it before it’s out on DVD.”
Chariot warned Adventists not to abuse this special privilege. “If you get to the theater and Finding Dory is sold out, don’t think you can just go see something else.”
She added that just because nature videos can be viewed on Sabbath doesn’t mean that people should be watching Finding Dory on Friday night.
