The Finding Nemo sequel that has been wanted, begged for, and worked on for over a decade is finally hitting theaters this weekend. Finding Dory takes place just 6 months after the events of the original film, where we’ll see Dory, Marlin, and Nemo back adventuring the open sea’s, this time off the coast of California.
Disney has done a great job of marketing this film, as they’ve played off of the “forgetful fish” personality of Dory quite well. And although I personally haven’t been blown away by the trailers (don’t get me wrong, it looks great, just a bit of the same thing), early word on the film is that it’s a much deserving sequel to one of Pixar’s greatest accomplishments. Now to celebrate it being the week of its release, Disney has released a ton of new videos to get you excited for what’s to come this weekend:
On top of those clips, Disney has released two interesting behind-the-scenes videos. These aren’t your every day b-roll footage videos, rather focusing on the technical side of an animated film, as well as the voice acting. I recommend taking a look if you don’t know a ton about the inner working of an animated film, it’s some very interesting stuff. Finding Dory swims into theaters this Friday, June 17th, 2016.
Finding Dory welcomes back to the big screen everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres), who’s living happily in the reef with Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks) and Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence). When Dory suddenly 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, a rehabilitation center and aquarium. In an effort to find her mom (voice of Diane Keaton) and dad (voice of Eugene Levy), Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (voice of Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (voice of Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark. Deftly navigating the complex inner workings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships and family.
