Disney has released a new trailer 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.

Pixar is making too many sequels, but this one I’m really looking forward to. Nemo felt like a technological breakthrough, and I can only imagine how much cooler the underwater world will be this time, now that technology has advanced over the course of a decade and a half.
All the Pixar movies up till Nemo had adult heroes, but Nemo was the first one to capture an adult mindset. I hope that’s not forgotten. But Brooks and Degeneres were so good in the first one… they gave us so many laughs, and conveyed so much pathos… that I’ve got a good feeling.
I have a tsunami of backlogged 2015 movies I need to release in a mega-review lightning round, but one of them was The Good Dinosaur and only Cars 2 was worse and not by much. I’m back to a place where Pixar is a gamble with brilliance like Inside Out becoming a welcome hearkening back to the golden age and not the norm. That being said, Andrew Stanton has never made a bad animated film. Dory may be the best of Pixar’s non-Toy Story characters, and I truly hope it is a return to form. Nemo will always hold a very special place in my heart. It was my wife’s favorite Pixar film. She did a great Dory Whale Talk imitation I’d give blood for to have on tape lol.
Now that we’re getting a Brad Bird-driven Incredibles 2, I’ll be a lot more forgiving of Finding Dory if it doesn’t live up to the first one.
