But I heard it's only canon to that book, or book series. Not related to movie at all?
User avatar #79 to #40 - capinsquiggles (02/25/2013) [-]
I'm assuming it wasn't mentioned in the movie because they fit a good chunk of stuff in that movie, and having to go into the backstory of mufasa and Scar would've added another 20-30min just to explain Scar's name, and for a children's movie it would've been too long for them to pay attention too
#106 to #79 - dethmaul (02/25/2013) [-]
Righto. I can't remember where I read it :(

So the book came out after the movie, and fleshed in the left-out bits then I guess.

It would make sense.. after all it is an amazing story, but was limited in what it could do because it had to appeal to children

Nemo was actually named after Captain Nemo of 20,000 Leagues under the sea. HE Was named after "no one", but still, Nemo wasn't.

Morph from "Treasure planet"  name comes from Ancient Greek ἄμορφος (amorphos) "without form, shapeless, deformed". This little guy can change shape to whatever he wants. Therefore his name is a short version of amorphos. (Also in english : morphing).

actually, the idea for nemo's name came from the great Captain Nemo
#91 to #82 - goastremusov (02/25/2013) [-]
Yes, and "Nemo" is a Latin name meaning "no one".
User avatar #93 to #91 - tealkangaroo (02/25/2013) [-]
yes, but they are making a reference to the book, not so much the meaning behind the name
#98 to #93 - goastremusov (02/25/2013) [-]
Practically every Disney movie in existence is making a reference to a book. Not exactly the point of this joke.

I heard they got "Toy Story 2" from the fact that it was the second Toy Story movie. Weird how it all fits together when you think about it.

What. The. **** . I CAN'T BELIEVE I'VE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT THIS WAY.
User avatar #23 - theaddviser (02/25/2013) [-]
in the first movie he was a bit of a dick
User avatar #29 - tbeastha (02/25/2013) [-]
what if nemo's father was crazy from watching his kids die and started following a ghost or just a imaginary being and thats why he's "no body"
User avatar #30 to #29 - tbeastha (02/25/2013) [-]
"no one*
User avatar #71 to #30 - grumpythefirst (02/25/2013) [-]
Technically you're right either way. Nemo was originally passed down through the odyssey when Odysseus tricks the cyclopes by saying his name is "Nohbdy", which of course sounds like "No body" when said out loud.

someone wright more nemo creepypasta

To those debating the "Nemo" name: The fact that Nemo was named "nemo" was simply an allusion to Homer's Odyssey.When Odysseus is held captive by the cyclopes ( son of Poseidon) he blinded the cyclopes asks "What is your name". Being very intelligent, Odysseus says "No One" (or "nemo" in the mother language of the text). So when Odysseus escapes the cyclopes is in search for "No One", the man who blinded his son. Just like in Finding Nemo (or Finding No One) the father search all the sea. Yet in the book, Odysseus ***** up and yells "I am not no one; I am Odysseus, Son of Laertes, King of Ithaca." which ends up ******* him later
Literature Mother ****** ! Do you read it!?

Odysseus should've played it safe, but he just wanted to boast.

OMG, the second person beside me that read Homer in latin. Lux in tenebris!
User avatar #70 to #50 - grumpythefirst (02/25/2013) [-]
Actually he uses the name "Nohbdy".
User avatar #73 to #50 - Ruspanic (02/25/2013) [-]
Really? I thought it was a reference to Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
#97 to #50 - iamtheblackgoat (02/25/2013) [-]
"Nemo" is Latin....even if you read a Roman copy of the Odyssey, Greek is still the mother tongue of the text, not Latin...the word you want is "Ουτις"

This makes me wonder even more why people name their dogs Simba. I had a cat named Simba, and that makes sense, but why would you name a dog Simba?

Pic, semi-related, it's the kind of cat my cat was.

In the Lion King 2, Simba and Nala's duaghter Kiara, falls in love with a banished lion named Kovu. (Kovu means Scar in Swahili, and at the end he has a scar)

my mind was pretty ****** . [url deleted]
