“She just kept swimming” is the tagline on the poster for next year’s Finding Dory which was just released today. It’s a callback to Pixar’s 2003 hit Finding Nemo.
Finding Dory will pick up six months after the events of the first film following the blue tang fish Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, as she tries to find out about her past – a surely difficult feat for a fish with short term memory loss.
Director Andrew Stanton told fans at Disney‘s D23 Expo,
I wanted to know that if this charming forgetful fish ever got lost again, that she would be okay, that she would find her way home. And at the end of Finding Nemo, I wasn’t confident about that. So that’s when I knew I had another story.
Albert Brooks returns to voice the clown fish Marlin. Kaitlin Olson (TV’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Ed O’Neill (TV’s Modern Family), Ty Burrell (TV’s Modern Family), Idris Elba (TV’s The Wire), Dominic West (300), Diane Keaton (Something’s Gotta Give), and Eugene Levy (American Pie) round out the rest of the cast.
Finding Dory hits theaters June 17, 2016.
