The full-length trailer for one of film’s most highly anticipated sequels, Finding Dory, has arrived!
Finding Dory will follow one of Nemo’s most beloved characters, the forgetful fish Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), as she goes on a mission to find her family.
DeGeneres shared the trailer on her talk show yesterday, and said she thought the script was fantastic.
“It has everything I loved about the first one,” she said.
“It’s got a lot of heart, it’s really funny, and the best part is – it’s got a lot more Dory.”
Also returning is Albert Brooks as Marlin, Willem Dafoe as Gill and Vicki Lewis as Deb (and her sister, “Flo,” Deb’s reflection).
Hayden Rolence replaces Alexander Gould as Nemo.
The new animated film also features the vocals of Ty Burrell (Modern Family) as a beluga whale named Bailey; Diane Keaton (Something’s Gotta Give) as Dory’s mother, Jenny; Eugene Levy (American Pie) as Dory’s father, Charlie; Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) as Destiny, a whale shark; and Ed O’Neill (Modern Family) as Hank, an octopus.
Idris Elba and Dominic West also star.
Disney-Pixar’s sequel comes 13 years after Finding Nemo, which was released to massive success in 2003, grossing almost $1.3 billion worldwide before going on to become the best-selling DVD in history.
The film takes place six months after the original, and unlike the first will not spend the majority of its time in the ocean. Instead, the movie will mostly take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California.
The film will be released in Australia on June 16.
