Pixar president Jim Morris finally gave away some juicy details about the upcoming Finding Nemo sequel called Finding Dory. Instead of the lovable clownfish family, this movie focuses on our favorite little forgetful blue fish, Dory.
At the Comic Con Experience in Brazil, Morris revealed that Dory’s story begins six months after the events of Finding Nemo. In the movie, Dory is inspired to go on a journey to find out where she came from. It turns out she was not born in the big blue ocean, but in fact at the California Marine Biology Institute, and released into the ocean at a young age. At the facility we will meet many new friends through characters like sea lions, an octopus, a beluga whale and many more!
Ellen DeGeneres will be reprising her role as Dory, while Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy are new additions to the cast who are going to be voicing Dory’s parents. Willem Dafoe, Ty Burrell, and Dominic West will also have roles to play in the upcoming production.
Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton will also be directing this film. Finding Dory is set for release on June 17, 2016.
