At the recent CCXP - Comic Con Experience in Brazil - the President of Disney Pixar Studios, Jim Morris, laid out some of what we can expect from the upcoming Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory.
The film will follow Dory, Marlin, and Nemo as they embark on an epic journey to discover Dory's origins and parents
As well as showing artwork, unfinished scenes, and some new animation software, Morris released a brief synopsis of the film. According to ComicBookMovie, the film will follow Dory, Marlin, and Nemo as they embark on an epic journey to discover Dory's origins and parents.
Apparently, much of the story will take place in the Marine Biology Institute of California - a large complex in which marine life is studied and rehabilitated. Dory discovers she was born and raised in the research facility before being released into the wild.
Morris also revealed some of the new characters we can expect to meet in Finding Dory. There are no pictures or character biographies yet, but we do know Finding Dory will feature an octopus, sea lions, and a beluga whale among others. So far, we only know that Ty Burrell will be voicing one of these characters - a beluga whale called Bailey. Diane Keaton is down to voice Dory's mother Jenny, while Eugene Levy will voice her father, Charlie.
Of course, there's still the possibility of Dory, Marlin, and Nemo running into some old familiar Finding Nemo faces. We've already heard Gill and Deb will be making the return, but here are three more aquatic characters I'd like to see in Finding Dory.
