Aside from the photo, the site revealed how these two characters figure into the film’s plot.
“Set six months after the first film ends, “Finding Dory“ sees the forgetful blue tang (voiced again by Ellen DeGeneres) on a mission to find her long-lost parents. Along the way, she visits the rehabilitation center at marine life facility where she meets Burrell’s snub-nosed beluga whale, Bailey, and his pal Destiny, a sweet whale shark.”
But what is the upcoming film all about? Burrell gave an explanation below:
“There’s always a deeper message with Pixar, and so much of it [in “Finding Dory”] is that these characters are trying to find faith in themselves. They’re trying to overcome their insecurities in order to help somebody in need.”
Both Burrell and Olson dished about their characters. According to the site, Bailey and Destiny will play an important role to reunite Dory with her family.
“My character isn’t great at his own sonar capability, and Destiny has trouble swimming straight,” Burrell explained.
Meanwhile, Olson admitted that they “totally get each other’s nerves.” The last time that she and Burrell worked together was more than 10 years ago. They both starred in the short-lived TV series “Out of Practice.”
“We would just play off each other. Though to be honest, I was probably the boss of the entire situation, because I always like to be,” Olson said. The actress mentioned that Destiny will definitely be kid-friendly unlike her past character, Sweet Dee.
“Finding Dory” will be shown in theatres on June 17, 2016.
