More details about the highly anticipated “Finding Dory” movie have been revealed at a Disney Pixar media event in Singapore recently.
Pixar Animation Studios president Jim Morris shared a few details about the “Finding Nemo” sequel, Rappler reported.
Here are some of the details of Pixar’s soon-to-be released “Finding Dory.”
“Finding Dory” will center around Dory’s search for her family and what she learns on her journey.
Dory will be knocked out after she was pulled into an undercurrent. She will be swimming in her sleep, while Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo go after her to make sure she doesn’t swim away.
Dory will remember her family and wonders of going back to them. She will ask Marlin to travel with him but Nemo’s dad is hesitant about being away from home again. According to Rappler, Dory begs Marlin and tells him to think about what it’s like to worry about family.
Their journey will then begin that will eventually lead them to Monterey Marine Life Institute in California, where marine animals are protected before being released back to the ocean.
The movie will pick up 6 months after the events of the first movie. Nemo will be shown happy and in school, Rappler wrote.
Ellen DeGeneres, who voices Dory in “Finding Nemo,” will still voice the forgetful blue tang character in the upcoming movie. DeGeneres has been pitching the sequel for more than a decade before Pixar finally give it a green light.
Hayden Rolence, 11, will voice Nemo this time since the original actor, Alexander Gould, that voiced him is now 21.
Throughout the movie, new marine characters will be introduced. These include the beluga whale Bailey (Ty Burrell), the whale shark named Destiny (Kaitlin Olson), the cantankerous octopus Hank (Ed O’Neill), and Dory’s parents –Jenny (Diane Keaton) and Charlie (Eugene Levy), Chicago Tibune wrote.
“Finding Dory” was officially announced during Disney D23 Expo in California last August, about 13 years after its prequel.
It is scheduled for release on June 17, 2015, in time with Pixar’s 30th anniversary.
