As “Finding Dory” gears for a June 2016 release across screens, it is taking every possible step to pique viewers’ interest in the story.
The makers have released photographs of all those ocean creatures that Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) interacts with on her journey home to meet her parents, reveals USA Today. Dory’s parents, Jenny and Charlie, live in Monterey, California and are voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.
Rudder and Fluke are voiced by Dominic West and Idris Elba, respectively. They play two huge sea lions who were also a part of the original “Finding Nemo.” Director Andrew Stanton intended them to have an East London gangster kind of persona, which suited the “The Wire” stars, explains Slash Films. “Idris and Dominic are well-trained, dramatic Shakespearean actors, but they can do comedy like nobody’s business. But the truth is, I really wanted to witness a Wire reunion,” said Stanton. “It’s the kind of reference that’s bound to sail right over kids’ heads, but will probably make their parents chuckle in the theatre,” he added.
In addition to West and Elba, Bob Peterson is slated to voice a spotted eagle ray, Nemo will be voiced by Hayden Rolence, and Albert Brooks will give voice to his father, Marlin. Octopus Hank will be helmed by Ed O’Neill and director Stanton will voice the turtle named Crush. ANN had earlier reported that some of the other characters in “Finding Dory” like Destiny, the whale shark, will be voiced by Kaitlin Olson. Ty Burrell of “Modern Family” will offer his vocals to a beluga whale named Bailey.
While these are some of the characters that meet the blue tang named Dory, there are others that will be seen in the film too, states Collider. These include the cute baby otters, the loons that don’t speak, and even Crush’s cute son Squirt who will be seen in the movie again.
