In an era of arbitrary holidays, what's one more?
In honor of Finding Dory's digital release on Oct. 25 and Blu-ray/DVD release on Nov. 15, Ed O'Neill—voice of Hank the septopus—has announced a new holiday inspired by his character. "While you may think Dory is the star of this movie, Hank actually has his own day. It's not Oct. 8: World Octopus Day. It's Friday, Oct. 7. We celebrate World Septopus Day. Seven tentacles. Get it?" he jokes. "Why in the world would I want to celebrate with everyone else on Oct. 8?"
In addition to O'Neill, Albert Brooks, Ty Burrell, Ellen DeGeneres, Idris Elba, Alexander Gould, Bill Hader, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Kate McKinnon, Kaitlin Olson, Bob Peterson, Hayden Rolence, Sigourney Weaver and Dominic West and more lent their voices to Finding Dory.
