All of Pixar's movies, from Toy Story on, were marketed and distributed by
Disney and all the Pixar movies, including "Finding Nemo" bear the Disney
logo. And even before the acquisition, Disney owned the copyright for the
early Pixar movies, including "Nemo." The two companies were deeply
intertwined long before the official acquisition in 2006.

(And in some sense Pixar acquired Walt Disney Animation Studios, not the
other way around, as Steve Jobs became Disney's largest shareholder and Ed
Catmull and John Lasseter of Pixar took the helm of Disney's animation
business following the acquisition. Technically, Disney bought Pixar, but
the deal put Pixar in charge.)

No, it has a Jules Verne connection, and a Pixar connection. "Finding Nemo"
was released in 2003, and it was not until 2006 that Disney acquired Pixar.
