Ellen DeGeneres have been involved in the production of “Finding Dory” with her friends and teammates for the past three years and now they can finally talk about it. Read below to get a scoop of it.

Fans have been waiting for long to get latest happenings related to the much anticipated-movie sequel to the 2003 blockbuster “Finding Nemo,” and we believe that the making of the sequel is nearer to an end as director Andrew Stanton and comedienne DeGeneres are confirming the new casts and release date.

Some names of the cast members have been recently revealed and the production is already in the works with them. The typical characters like Bailey (a beluga whale) will be voiced by the “Modern Family” star Ty Burrell, and an angry octopus named Hank will be voiced by Burrell’s co-star Ed O’Neill. Oppositely, the character of a whale shark named Destiny, adopted sister of Dory (voiced by DeGeneres), will be voiced by “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” actress Kaitlin Olson.

The Ellen Show host has recently presented a first look at the upcoming “Finding Dory” at this weekend’s Disney’s D23 event that was held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

“Dory is searching for her parents — she realizes [she] has parents — and comes across some characters who are somewhat helpful,” DeGeneres said in an exclusive conversation with Yahoo Movies.

The success of “Finding Nemo” was such a massive one that the fans started demanding bright orange-and-white clown fishes and the blue tang fishes at pet stores and aquarium shops. But DeGeneres made a clear cut comment that she would not confine such species in an aquarium as they should be in the ocean. The whole sequel is about the rehabilitation and putting them back in the ocean. She also emphasized the necessity of protecting the ocean, hopefully the film would start with this discussion.

“Finding Dory” is scheduled to hit the theater on June 17, 2016.
