Finding Nemo told in emoji: Dory and Marlin search the vast iPhone screen

Finding a one clownfish in the entire ocean isn’t easy; it’s kind of like trying to find where you moved Venmo or Snapchat to on your phone. Okay, finding apps might not be that difficult, but the treacherous vastness of the iPhone screen serves as the expansive backdrop for Disney’s re-telling of Finding Nemo through emoji.

The short featurette cleverly employs text bubbles, the iPhone’s copy and paste features, and its sliding menu as tiny icons representing Nemo, Marlin, Dory, and more wordlessly act out the plot of Finding Nemo. Disney has posted these emoji reenactments for several of its popular movies before, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Frozen.
