After the success of the 2003 Disney-Pixar movie, “Finding Nemo” finally gets its sequel with “Finding Dory.” The movie’s storyline and plot now moves forward, having Ellen DeGeneres as Dory’s voice and Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton as the voices of Dory’s parents.
Jim Morris, Pixar President, revealed in an interview with 2Day FM, that most of the film is set in a wide rehabilitation facility for marine life in Marine Biology Institute of California.
“Dory finds out that she was born there and was freed into the ocean at a young age. Dory is inspired to embark on a journey in search of her parents after she joins Nemo on a school trip to watch the migration of manta rays,” he said.
According to the original plot of “Finding Dory” via The Hollywood Reporter, it was said that the film will take place a year after “Finding Nemo” and that it will be set off the coast of California.
The announcement said that Nemo and the rest of the “Tank Gang” will return for the movie, as well as many of the other original characters from its predecessor, in addition to several new ones that have yet to be announced.”
However, it is still not clear if Jacque will have to reappear on this sequel since Joe Ranft, his voice actor, died during a car accident last 2005, during the production of “Cars”. We also don’t have any information yet if Alexander Gould, Nemo’s voice actor, who was nine years old during the production of “Finding Nemo” will still be voicing the character, since his voice has already deepened.
“Finding Dory” hits the theaters on June 17, 2016.
