AURORA STUDENT

STARS IN

 FINDING DORY!

 When the new movie Finding Dory premieres this weekend, 12 year-old Hayden Rolence from Aurora will be the voice of the world's most famous clownfish, Nemo!

 

A student at Still Middle School in Aurora, Hayden was cast in the Disney/Pixar movie two years ago and kept it a secret until it was announced last fall.

 

He is excited for the weekend, which includes a special showing at Hollywood Palms with his family and friends, and for the opportunity to be a part of the Disney/Pixar family. 

 

"I guess I'm a celebrity, but I just want to be a regular kid," he said.  


Go check out Aurora's star this weekend at a theatre near you!
