It’s coming up on thirteen years since Pixar’s mega-blockbuster, generation-defining animated flick Finding Nemo debuted in theaters in May of 2003. And now, Disney is cashing in on all the nostalgia it can with the start of its big media push for that film’s long-awaited sequel, Finding Dory.
In a new TV spot debuting today, the company promises that “she’s almost here,” before Dory finds herself in a plethora of less-than-ideal situations, one of which now includes an army of blue tangs which may or may not include her long-lost parents.
That’s the plot of the sequel, which picks up six months after the original, with forgetful Dory forging a peaceful life with Marlin and Nemo amongst the clown fish. Through a series of events, Dory somehow becomes homesick and gets determined to find her parents, no matter what.
The new clip has a few aquarium-set scenes on display, and it sounds like that’ll be a large chunk of the film, according to Pixar president Jim Morris.
“The movie will be mostly set at the California Marine Biology Institute, a huge complex of sea life rehabilitation and aquarium, where Dory was born and raised,” Pixar President Jim Morris stated previously. “We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others.”
Andrew Stanton is returning to direct Finding Dory, but a few new voice cast members include Ed O’Neil, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy, and Diane Keaton. Of course, Ellen DeGeneres is back in the role of Dory, and Albert Brooks returns as level-headed Marlin.
