May 20, 2003 – The Soundtrack for Finding Nemo is Released Through Walt Disney Records
“Somewhere beyond the sea…”
On May 20, 2003, the soundtrack to Pixar’s fifth animated feature Finding Nemo was released through Walt Disney Records. This was the first Pixar feature not to be scored by Randy Newman, and the first collaboration between Pixar and Thomas Newman, who would go on to work with Andrew Stanton on the score for WALL-E. The score would go on to be nominated for Original Music Score at the Academy Awards, but lost to The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
