Pixar President Jim Morris revealed more details and the main setting for the upcoming Finding Dory, a sequel to the 2003 animated Finding Nemo, at the Comic-Con Experience in Brazil, according to Slashfilm.
Finding Dory finds Marlin, Nemo, and Dory all living together on the same reef several months after Finding Nemo. Dory accompanies Nemo on a school field trip that triggers memories of her past and her family. Morris explains that the film follows the group’s trip to California to find Dory’s parents, with the majority of the film taking place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, where Dory was born and raised before being released into the wild at a young age.
Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks (who played Dory and Marlin, respectively, in the first film) will return, joined by Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton as Dory’s parents and Ty Burrell as a Beluga whale named Bailey (amazing! Dory will get to show off those whale-speaking skills again!), and more. Although we assume that they’ll bring back fan-favorites, like the Australian-accented Bruce the shark, Finding Dory will also feature a whole new cast of aquatic friends.
Finding Dory is scheduled to hit theaters on June 17, 2016.
