We have waited for 13 years for Disney to announce its sequel to the much loved “Finding Nemo.” As we approach the release date, Disney’s marketing juggernaut is finally moving. First it was the teaser trailer and then the unveiling of characters.
Recently, Disney has released a bunch of posters that tell us what to expect from the film. The posters are as cute as Dory herself. What’s more interesting is that while the protagonist does not feature prominently on the poster is precisely the reason why it will stay with us for long. According to Screen Rant, in terms of time line “Finding Dory” takes place just six months after the events of “Finding Nemo.” The movie follows Dory’s quest to get back to her family and where she came from.
“Finding Dory” is expected to feature some breathtaking graphics, an engaging storyline, beautiful settings and our beloved heroine with big and confused eyes, reveals Bustle.com. The four posters showcase the movie setting which includes a jellyfish forest, anemones, a group of stingrays, and a coral reef. They all ask just the one question, “Have you seen her?”
MoviePilot states that Ellen DeGeneres will be reprising her fish-tastic role. She will be supported by Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton as Dory’s parents. “Modern Family” actor Ty Burrell will voice Bailey the beluga whale and Kaitlin Olson will play Destiny the whale shark. Idris Elba and Dominic West are also supposed to join the cast. ANN had reported about Michael Sheen joining the cast. However there is no news about the character he will be playing.
Screen Rant reports that “Finding Nemo” was the third highest grossing film in the Pixar studio’s history. It was also one of their most critically acclaimed works. Also, given their track record with other films, it won’t be a surprise if “Finding Dory” becomes another highest grosser for the studio.
