Disney has released the first trailer and poster for Pixar’s upcoming film Finding Dory, which as most of you already know is a sequel to Finding Nemo. The sequel will be released 13 years after Finding Nemo, but the story itself picks up only six months after the events from the first film when Dory suddenly starts to remember certain things about her life. In the trailer, these memories first start to manifest themselves in her sleep, and she starts sleep swimming.
The story follows Dory as she embarks on a journey to find her mom and dad. This leads her to an ocean sanctuary facility where wounded animals are treated before they are re-released into the wild. It’s here that she meets lots of new characters like an octopus, who is missing a leg, and a beluga whale named Bailey, who thinks he has suffered a head injury because of the big bump on his head that is supposed to be there.
Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks will reprise their roles of Dory and Marlin, and they are joined by a great voice cast that includes Ed O’Neill as an octopus named Hank; Ty Burrell as the beluga whale, named Destiny; Kaitlin Olsen as a “kind-hearted whale shark”, and Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy as Dory’s parents.
Andrew Stanton returns to direct the film, which swims into theaters June 17th, 2016.
One thought on “Trailer Time: Finding Dory Trailer #1 (2016) *She Just Kept Swimming*”
I don’t know how to feel about this. All the Pixar movies up until Finding Nemo were about adult characters, but Finding Nemo was the first one that captured an adult mindset. So much of its power was thematic and driven by the story rather than the characters. Not that Brooks and DeGenreris weren’t wonderful in their roles, but this plot description is not doing it for me, especially since Pixar has direct access to the imaginations of some of the most talented people in the business. Unless it’s Incredibles 2, I want to see fresh ideas.
The short in front of The Good Dinosaur sounds incredible BTW. I think I want to see the short as much as the movie. And I don’t know what you’ve heard about Good Dinosaur, but it sounds to me like the troubles got ironed out. A couple of years ago I was prepared to let Pixar go, because turn, turn, turn. I’m elated that they turned it around.
