'Finding Dory' Setting and Plot Details Revealed
Just keep swimming … to the Marine Biology Institute of California
Our favorite forgetful blue fish is coming back in the Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. Pixar president Jim Morris gave away a few more details about the film at Comic Con Experience in Brazil this past weekend.
Morris said that the majority of the film would be set in the Marine Biology Institute of California, a large rehabilitation facility for marine life. Dory finds out that she was born there and was freed into the ocean at a young age, reports Omelete.
Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) 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. The film takes place several months after Finding Nemo left off and Dory is living with Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) and Nemo, who join her on her adventure to California. New characters including an octopus, a whale and sea lions will be featured as well.
Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy are the voices for Dory's long-lost parents, and Ty Burrell is playing a whale named Bailey. The film is set to hit theaters on June 17, 2016.
