Walt Disney Studios recently revealed the first 27 minutes of Pixar’s much-awaited animation film, “Finding Dory.” The film will hit the theaters on June 17.
Who would forget the friendly but forgetful blue fish in the hit 2003 film “Finding Nemo“? Aside from the famed little orange clownfish, Dory’s character was the comic relief of the film, especially her adventure scenes with Nemo’s father, Marlin.
“Finding Dory” director Andrew Stanton revealed the first 27 minutes of the film at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Wednesday. According to USA Today, the director requested the attendees not to spoil the plot details concerning the opening scenes of the film, “The very opening of the movie, if you can not tell anyone what that is. It’s one of the nicest surprises for people.”
Stanton also told the attendees at the CinemaCon that the reason it took a decade for the follow-up was because he thought “Finding Nemo” was the last until he watched it again in 3D. What made him pursue the sequel was his thoughts about Dory losing her memory again.
While in a report by Entertainment Weekly, the sequel answers the question as to where Dory came from. It would be about the forgetful fish starting to remember her parents, Jenny (Diane Keaton) and Charlie (Eugene Levy) and a place called “The Jewel of Morro Bay,” thus marking her quest to search for them .
The trio (Dory, Nemo, and Marlin) would be seen at a Marine Life Institute in Morro Bay where they would meet an octopus dubbed by Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill and two sea lions with the voices of Dominic West and Idris Elba, both from “Wire.”
While for Dory and Marlin, Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks voices the characters, respectively. In addition, Entertainment Weekly teased that Sigourney Weaver would be voicing in the movie.
