Finding Dory’s Blue Carpet Is Excellent for People Who Can’t See Red and Green (Me)


I am what I call “color deficient,” meaning I have a hard time seeing reds and greens. Which is why I was excited to hear that the premiere of Finding Dory would feature a blue—blue!—carpet, otherwise known as a color I can see (sea?). The latest sequel from Pixar hits theaters this week, but not before a gala premiere at the El Capitan on Wednesday featuring Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, and all the voice talent from the film. Guests will enter via a long azure step and repeat, a nautical nod to the film that also happens to be colorblind-inclusive. It turns out that studios have been shying away from red for a while now, expressing a wider range of emotion through colorful flooring. Check out a prismatic smattering below:
