The “Finding Dory” release date is approaching. The sequel of the hit animated film “Finding Nemo” has enriched its voice cast by including Michael Sheen. The Golden Globe-nominated actor will be part of the cast, but he has not revealed his character.
Doug Benson had Michael Sheen on his podcast Doug Loves Movies, released two weeks ago. The podcast involves Sheen talking about his involvement in the Finding Dory voice cast. When asked about his next project, he said, “Finding Nemo 2 should be coming out at some point… which I’m in.”
Finding Dory picks up six months after Finding Nemo. However, 13 years have passed since the release date of the first movie. Dory is shown living a quiet life with the clown fishes. After she sees manta rays migrating home, she starts finding where she came from. It is a difficult journey for Dory, but her friends are there to help.
The Finding Dory voice cast has some remarkable names apart from Michael Sheen. Ellen Degeneres will be voicing Dory, while Albert Brooks and William Dafoe will be voicing Marlin and Gill, respectively. Diana Keaton, Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neill and Kaitlin Olson will be voicing other sea creatures.
As for Michael Sheen, one more voicing project is around the corner. He will be reprising his role of White Rabbit in “Alice Through The Looking Glass.” He was previously present in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” He will also be acting in Morten Tyldum’s “Passengers” with Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt.
Pixar president Jim Morris previously said, “We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others.” The movie will be in theaters on June 17, 2016.
