Disney UK has dropped a new trailer for Pixar’s Finding Dory. The follow-up to 2003 smash Finding Nemo puts the eponymous forgetful blue tang front and center as she searches for her parents. Along with Nemo and his dad, Marlin, the trio takes off on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California’s Marine Life Institute, aka the fish hospital.
The teaser above dives deeper into life at the Institute, offering more glimpses at the local sea-dwellers than we’ve seen before. Dory enlists the help of three of the MLI’s most intriguing residents: Hank (Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus who frequently gives employees the slip; Bailey (Ty Burrell), a beluga whale who is convinced his echolocation skills are on the fritz; and Destiny (Kaitlin Olson), a nearsighted whale shark.
Ellen DeGeneres returns as the voice of Dory along with Albert Brooks as Marlin. Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy make their first appearances as Dory’s parents. The film is directed by Andrew Stanton, co-directed by Angus MacLane, and produced by Lindsey Collins.
Disney is on a tear this year with the Top 2 movies of 2016 so far in Captain America: Civil War and Zootopia. They are soon to be joined by The Jungle Book which should leapfrog Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice this weekend to take the No. 3 spot at the worldwide box office. This week also sees the release of Alice Through The Looking Glass, followed by Dory which swims into several major overseas markets beginning June 16 and lands ashore in North America on June 17 (as well as in China). Dory later surfaces in the UK on July 29, followed by Italy and Germany in September. Finding Nemo, released 13 years ago, grossed $937M globally at the time.
