The latest trailer for Disney-Pixar’s Finding Dory certainly aims to get those emotions going.
Kicking off with a ridiculously-cute sounding young Dory looking for her parents, it’s very clear that we’re going to be in for a Pixar entry that tugs the heartstrings, which is only right, considering that the hugely successful Finding Nemo did just that and then some.
The new trailer offers up quite a lot of new footage from the sequel, which sees Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) teaming up with Nemo and Marlin to search for her family. Among the many plot hints on display is the realisation that Nemo and Marlin may very well have to say goodbye to Dory if she does find her home. Must. Stay. Strong. Too late.
Finding Dory, also featuring voice work from Hayden Rolence, Albert Brooks, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Bill Hader and Idris Elba, will arrive in Australia on June 16 and hit the U.S. on June 17.
Finding Dory synopsis:
Disney•Pixar’s 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 Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks). 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 innerworkings of the MLI, Dory and her friends discover the magic within their flaws, friendships and family.
Directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL•E), co-directed by Angus MacLane (Toy Story OF TERROR!), and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer WALL•E), Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory swims into theaters June 17, 2016.
