Back to the Sea is a heartwarming animated adventure film that follows the journey of a young fish named Kevin, who dreams of exploring the world outside his ocean home. This movie was released in 2012 and directed by Thom Lu and Pieter Lommerse. The film features an all-star voice cast of talented actors including Yuri Lowenthal, Kath Soucie, and Tom Kenny.

The story begins with Kevin, a colorful and curious fish, who finds himself trapped in a fish tank in a sushi restaurant in New York City. Despite his initial fear and confusion, Kevin quickly befriends a young boy named James, who sees the fish as a pet and takes him back to his home.

Although he is far away from his ocean home, Kevin is eager to explore the world around him and begins to make the most of his unusual situation. With James as his guide, Kevin learns about life outside the ocean and becomes fascinated by the strange and exciting sights and sounds of the human world. In particular, he is captivated by the bright lights and bustling streets of New York City, which is alien to him as he has spent his entire life underwater.

However, as much as Kevin is enjoying his newfound freedom, he still longs to return to his ocean home and the friends and family he left behind. As the days pass and James becomes more attached to Kevin, the young fish realizes he needs to find a way back to the sea before it's too late.

With the help of a wise old turtle named Shaquatics, Kevin and James embark on a perilous journey across the city, encountering all sorts of dangers along the way. From dodging traffic to escaping the clutches of a cunning cat, Kevin and James must rely on their wit and courage to survive and find a way back to the sea.

Through their adventure, Kevin and James learn about the importance of friendship, family and the power of determination. They also discover that sometimes it's the journey, not the destination that holds the most valuable lessons.

The animation in the movie is visually stunning with vibrant colors and intricate details that bring the underwater world to life. The voice actors, including Yuri Lowenthal as Kevin, Kath Soucie as James' mom, and Tom Kenny as the villainous cat, deliver compelling performances that complement the stunning visuals and add depth to the characters.
