Everyone's favorite boy wizard caused quite a stir even after the final film came out. It turns out that a lot of kids wanted a Hedwig of their own to carry their messages to their friends, but weren't prepared for the reality of keeping an owl. Owls can live up to 20 years and require a lot of hard work to keep them healthy. After people began to realize their owls weren't going to be bringing them a letter for Hogwarts, they dumped them across England. Sanctuaries became full of owls, and many died after being released into the wild.
One of the most popular Pixar movies to date, "Finding Nemo" was a fun story about the importance of family, courage and being true to yourself. Unfortunately, when the movie came out there was a massive demand to collect the ocean's clown fish population as pets. There were also reports of children flushing their live fish down toilets in order to free them, like in the movie.
