Dory is starting to remember bits and pieces of her past, so she sets out on a journey of self-discovery. Naturally, since she doesn’t exactly have the best short-term memory, trouble awaits around every corner in Finding Dory.
In the direct sequel to Pixar’s 2003 now classic Finding Nemo, which is still the second all-time highest grossing feature for the studio with $936.7 million worldwide, the table has turned and Dory is now the one that needs to be found. The twist here, what differentiates it from the first one (since you don’t want to have the same story with only a few changes here and there), is Dory will have to find herself, discover who she really is and where she comes from.
Andrew Stanton, who was also behind Finding Nemo, came back to direct Finding Dory and helping him out was co-director Angus MacLane. Ellen DeGeneres is back to voice the always forgetful Dory. Also back is Albert Brooks as the voice of Marlin, Nemo’s father. Other names whose voices you might recognize are Idris Elba (in everything these days), Michael Sheen, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neill and Dominic West.
Finding Dory swims onto the big screen starting June 17th in the US and around the world.
