Our favorite forgetful fish is back and this time she’s doing her best to remember, well, anything. Ellen DeGeneres reprises her role as the blue tang Dory, and along with her clownfish friends she sets out to discover where she came from.
Dory and her trusty travel companions Nemo and his dad Marlin end up in California at the Marine Life Institute, where they meet a new group of sea creatures who will hopefully be able to point Dory’s fins in the direction of her parents.
Finding Nemo is Pixar’s highest grossing film to date, so expect some huge numbers from Finding Dory when it hits theatres on June 17.
Of course, the ocean is a big place, which means lots and lots of fish. Disney and Pixar have now released the full cast and images for Finding Dory and it may be too much cuteness for one ocean to hold.
Ellen DeGeneres returns as Dory, the lovable and forget blue fish who is on a journey to find the family she has forgotten.
Albert Brooks is back as the clownfish Marlin, who is understandably reluctant to swim the entire ocean a second time to help Dory find her family. Hayden Rolence is the voice of Nemo, Dory’s best friend and someone who understands what it’s like to get lost in the ocean.
Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill is the tentacle-missing octopus Hank, who sees Dory as his way out of the Marine Life Institute.
O’Neill finds some company with his Modern Family co-star Ty Burrell, a beluga whale named Bailey who also lives at the Marine Life Institute.
Torbin Bullock is Becky, a kooky loon with a crush on Marlin.
Kaitlin Olson of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is a shark named Destiny, an old friend of Dory’s who makes up for her clumsiness with her big heart and her secret talent of speaking ‘whale’.
Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy are Jenny and Charlie, Dory’s parents who did their best to protect their forgetful daughter by arming her with skills to survive in the ocean.
Idris Elba and Dominic West are Fluke and Rudder, Marine Life Institute sea lions who are more interested in catching a nap than catching their dinner.
Bob Peterson returns as Nemo’s teacher Mr. Ray, whose lesson is what first sparks Dory’s memory that she has a family she’s forgetting.
Andrew Stanton and Bennett Dammann are the totally tubular turtles Crush and his son Squirt. Bill Hader and Kate McKinnon make a cameo appearance as a fish couple that Dory briefly encounters along the way.
