First Trailer for Pixar's Sequel 'Finding Dory' Just Keeps Swimming
"My family! They're out there!" Disney-Pixar has debuted the first charming trailer for the long-awaited sequel to 2003's Finding Nemo, titled Finding Dory. Marlin and Nemo and their new friend Dory are still friends, but this time it's Dory who ends up lost, as she just kept (sleep) swimming in an attempt to find her family and now they can't find her. I love the original Finding Nemo and this already looks like an amusing follow-up that isn't pushing the story too far from the characters we love. The voice cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Diane Keaton, Ty Burrell and others. I'm sure there are more characters we'll meet down the line, including Dory's parents. Jump back in the water below.
Here's the first official teaser trailer for Andrew Stanton's Finding Dory, found on YouTube:
We already know that the story was going to follow Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) and Marlin (Albert Brooks) on a journey to find the former forgetful fish's family. Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton have already been named as Dory's parents Charlie and Jenny, and there's also a beluga whale voiced by Ty Burrell. And Pixar president Jim Morris also revealed to Omelete that a big part of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, a huge rehabilitation complex for marine and aquarium life. Dory discovers that she was born and raised there, only to be released into the ocean when she was young. Finding Dory is being directed by Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E, John Carter), and co-directed by Angus MacLane. Disney-Pixar has Finding Dory set to open in theaters June 7th, 2016 next summer.
