Who could forget those moving lines that remind everyone that ‘fish are friends, not food’? Couple that with a warm and friendly smile filled with rows of razor sharp teeth, then you’ll be convinced that they really mean their pledge.
Among the trio of Dory’s shark friends in Finding Nemo (the rest being Anchor and Chum), perhaps it is Bruce – a Great White – that has the most ‘endearing’ smile. Though we’re not sure yet if Bruce and the rest of his rehabilitated pals will appear again in Disney’s sequel Finding Dory, one scuba driver named Kenneth ‘Wayne’ MacWilliams from Florida claimed that he might have seen Bruce during one of his dives together with the Emerald Charters scuba group. He shared this photo of a ‘smiling’ Lemon Shark that looks surprisingly the same as our good-mannered shark.
“Since it appears as the shark is smiling, it made me smile,” says MacWilliams. “Shark diving can of course be quite exciting because of the possibility of seeing these big, powerful, potentially dangerous, beautiful animals of nature. But, with a bit of common sense, coupled with an experienced crew, the inherent dangers can be mitigated quite a bit.”
It is kind of cute seeing how Bruce and the rest of his shark buddies might smile back at you in the wild. Having a shark around with such a nice disposition may actually convince you that sharks are not ‘mindless eating machines’.
Finding Dory follows the adventure of our favorite Blue Tang as she seeks to be reunited with her loved ones, learning a few things about the meaning of family along the way. Taking place about a year after the first film, Finding Dory features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang, among others. Finding Dory will hit US theatres on June 17, 2016 and features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres (Dory), Albert Brooks (Marlin), Hayden Rolence (Nemo), Diane Keaton (Jenny), Eugene Levy (Charlie), Ty Burrel (Bailey), and Kaitlin Olson (Destiny).
