A new trailer for Disney-Pixar’s Finding Dory was bound to drop sooner or later, and who better to release the trailer than Ellen DeGeneres, the voice of Dory, the lovable and absented-minded blue fish. The film is the follow-up to 2003’s Finding Nemo, which also won an Academy Award. The new trailer is scheduled to make its debut on Wednesday, March 2.
Check out the announcement trailer here below.
The clip, which runs at 30 seconds, doesn’t offer much in terms of footage from the actual film, which is fine as it will keep fans and those intrigued interested in what they would be seeing in the upcoming trailer. Basically, it’s just Dory swimming around the title while ooohing and aaahing at it.
We’ve gotten little glimpses of the sequel in the past few months. The first trailer debuted late last year, while we got to see a couple of clips at the D23 Expo.
In addition to DeGeneres returning, Albert Brooks reprises his role as Marlin, Nemo’s father, the clown fish. They will be joined by Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy, and Diane Keaton. Other supporting voice talent include Idris Elba, Michael Sheen, Willem Dafoe, Vicki Lewis, and Dominic West.
Andrew Stanton also returns to direct. Finding Dory arrives in theaters June 17, 2016.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale?
