Take a look at some of the new Finding Dory characters as well as a few returning favorites!
Disney•Pixar has released, via USA Today, a series of images that show off the Finding Dory characters. In the gallery viewer below, you can take a look at a dozen new images featuring the film’s aquatic cast! Returning Finding Dory characters include Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), Marlin (Albert Brooks), Nemo (Hayden Rolence), Mr. Ray (Bob Peterson), Crush (Andrew Stanton) and Squirt. New characters include an Octopus named Hank (Ed O’Neill), a whale shark named Destiny (Kaitlin Olson), a beluga named Bailey (Ty Burrell), a pair of sea lions, Rudder (Dominic West) and Fluke (Idris Elba), and Dory’s parents, Charlie (Eugene Levy) and Jenny (Diane Keaton). There’s also a look at one of the film’s loons and at a group of adorable sea otters.
Finding Dory picks up six months after the first movie, with Dory living a quiet life among the clown fishes. After going with Nemo on a class trip to see manta rays migrate back home, her home sickness leads the forgetful Dory on a quest to find where she came from.
“The movie will be mostly set at the California Marine Biology Institute, a huge complex of sea life rehabilitation and aquarium, where Dory was born and raised,” Pixar President Jim Morris stated previously. “We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others.”
Finding Dory features returning favorites Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang. Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.
Findng Nemo helmer Andrew Stanton (John Carter) returns to the directors chair for the animated film, which hits theaters June 17.
