Ellen DeGeneres just keeps swimming to find her long lost parents in the all-new trailer for Finding Dory, Pixar and Andrew Stanton’s long-awaited animated sequel that will make a beeline for theaters come June.
Only six months have passed for life under the sea in the time since 2003’s Finding Nemo, and today’s trailer find’s DeGeneres’ forgetful fish settling into life with her newfound clownfish family – voiced by Albert Brooks and Hayden Rolence, who replaces Alexander Gould from the original flick.
And though she may consider it home for now, Dory uncovers a burning desire to discover her true heritage after learning a thing or two about stingray migration. Cue the underwater road trip movie. Joining Brooks, Rolence and DeGeneres in the star-studded voice both are Diane Keaton, Willem Dafoe, Dominic West, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Diane Keaton, Ed O’Neill, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba and Michael Sheen in an unknown role.
It’s been an awful long time coming, but Paramount’s lowly box office turn for Zoolander 2 doesn’t exactly bode well for long-in-development comedy sequels. Granted, Finding Dory is a different kettle of fish – pun intended – and the vibrant animation alone has piqued our curiosity ahead of the film’s arrival in only a few months’ time.
Finding Dory will just keep swimming all the way into theaters when Andrew Stanton’s long-awaited sequel opens on June 17.
