“Finding Dory,” Pixar’s 17th animated film is the sequel of blockbuster hit “Finding Nemo.” In the recently released trailers of the movie, we have met Dory the absent-minded blue tang fish and many of her new marine co-stars.
Now Disney and Pixar are backing things up just a bit to show the fans how “Finding Dory” made it to the big screen. They are showing the fantastic journey using some gorgeous new concept art from the long-awaited sequel to “Finding Nemo.” The recently revealed artwork mainly features the sketches of the cute forgetful Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) and a new character (octopus) named Hank (voiced by Ed O’Neill). Additionally, some eye-catching landscapes and magnificent underwater scenes can also be seen while browsing through the artwork.
Among the artwork, one will come across Dory gazing up at a school of manta rays with Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) and Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence). Another sketch portrays the prestigious ‘The Marine Life Institute.” It is that rehab center and aquarium where Dory will meet many new friends in her exciting adventure, reveals ScreenCrush.
PIXAR reveals the plot of the film: Forgetful tang fish Dory lives happily in the reef with Marlin and Nemo. Suddenly she remembers that she has a family out there who may be looking for her. The trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s prestigious Marine Life Institute. In an effort to find her mom and dad, Dory takes help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny a nearsighted whale shark. Cleverly navigating the complex inner workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships, and family.
While Diane Keaton voiced Dory’s mom, Eugene Levy voiced Dory’s dad. At the same time, Bailey the beluga is voiced by Actor Ty Burrell and Destiny the whale shark is voiced by Kaitlin Olson. The film also features a reunion from HBO’s “The Wire,” with Idris Elba and Dominic West voicing a pair of territorial sea lions.
“Finding Dory” will be released in 3D worldwide in July this year.
