Never miss a Film Theory! ►
Disney is infamous for keeping a tight hold on it's copyright, including taking it to extremes with things that TECHNICALLY fall under public domain in their original format. Well, that is not what happened with Finding Nemo. You see, the story of Finding Nemo is VERY similar to a not as well known children's story. One that is NOT in the public domain. Today, Theorists, we are going to dive deep and figure out if Disney actually STOLE the story of Finding Nemo!

  • ok but disclaimers still shouldnt even be a thing. it actually makes the world more unfair in the longterm. ez fix: the only thing youre not allowed to do is say that its youre idea unless its really youre idea. aslong as you do not state that its youre idea you should be able to make an exact 1 to 1 copy and sell it(obviously you could also do something like : if its obvious that you just copy and pasted something in a software instead of making it from scratch its illegal)

  • While inspecting and cross checking matt's evidence on his theory (He himself said in the video, don't believe your first assumptions, personally I'm sure matpat doesn't rig stuff or anything, just checking in case he mistook, I'm fan of his don't go in replies cursing me) I found the Wikipedia page about the French children's book which is a main part of the theory, and found out they have mentioned matt's theory in it and THEY HAVE THEIR OWN PAGE ON MATPAT! wow........ EDIT: It might not be as big of a thing I'm saying it is, but I think it is.

  • Hello MatPat and dear ISpast users. I just wanted to mention something sad that has happened on this channel. As you know, Mathew posted a video about the show ATLA (Avatar the Last Airbender) and the science behind waterbending. In this show, if you don’t already know, there are 4 elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. These elements can be controlled, or bent, by people in this universe. Only the avatar could master all four elements. This video, titled: The Science of Waterbending, was posted on September 29 2019. In this video, you promised a 4 part series about the elements and the science behind bending. It was even written in the Description! I am very disappointed that after almost 2 years you have failed to achieve this goal. I have been waiting. I know that you have lots of work to do on other projects and video’s, but COME ON! And it is actually a great idea to continue doing theories with this franchise because it is getting way more popular, so to speak, on countless social media platforms. ISpast, Facebook, TikTok, Insta and even Pinterest (who uses Facebook nowadays i dont even know). The point is, you have disappointed me and i have decided to unsubscribe. I just really want this because you have kept me waiting! A promise, I suppose, no matter how corny it is 😂, is a promise. Plz respond if you feel the same way
